Biomed & Biotech: Isilon Systems Deployed By Genome Resources Center

April 22, 2010 (FinancialWire) — Isilon Systems (NASDAQ: ISLN) said that the National Center for Genome Resources has deployed Isilon scale-out NAS to power its range of next-generation genome sequencing research services.

Isilon's said that, by combining the firm’s X-Series, Backup Accelerator and CommVault's Simpana backup software, NCGR has unified eight Illumina genome analyzers onto a central storage resource, accelerating time-to-results and ensuring its research information is secure and accessible at all times.

With Isilon IQ, NCGR has been able to scale a single, high performance, shared pool of storage in-step with its rapidly growing DNA sequencing capacity without the need for full-time storage administration, according to Isilon.

NCGR's research focuses on discovering how genome variation between individuals relates to disease or to economically important crop traits, while NCGR's software engineers develop scientific software solutions to support and enable this research.

Prior to deploying Isilon IQ, the increase of genomic data generated by NCGR's rapidly growing sequencing capacity overwhelmed the organization's previous storage system, according to Isilon.

Washington-based Isilon Systems offers clustered storage and data management solutions for enterprises and research organizations.
