Isilon IQ Powers Data Storage for Next-Generation DNA Sequencing
Date:9/15/2008

The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard Deploys Isilon Clustered Storage to

Manage Rapid Genomic Data Expansion, Enabling Five-Fold Data Growth

SEATTLE, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Isilon(R) Systems (Nasdaq: ISLN), the leader in clustered storage, today announced that the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, one of the world's leading genomics and biomedical research institutes, has deployed Isilon IQ clustered storage to streamline mission-critical data access and utilization in its next-generation DNA sequencing workflow. With Isilon IQ, the Broad Institute has accelerated its high-performance workflow while also supporting a five-fold increase in the volume of genomic data that can be analyzed and stored, enabling researchers to devote precious time and resources into groundbreaking biomedical research.

"Applications of next-generation DNA sequencing at the Broad Institute and elsewhere require an unprecedented amount of data to be stored and managed in a high-performance research and bioinformatics pipeline," said Matthew Trunnell, Manager of Research Computing at the Broad Institute. "With Isilon IQ, we've been able to grow a single file system to nearly a Petabyte in less than a year, while still maintaining the data throughput necessary to power our workflow and advance our research."

The data growth and performance needs of DNA sequencing have changed rapidly and unexpectedly, driven by a recent flurry of next-generation technologies. To maintain research productivity, traditional storage systems need to adapt to meet the intense performance and capacity demands of these new technologies. Without a unified and flexible storage repository, institutions may be forced to spread their data across multiple, disparate silos of information, creating unnecessary barriers to data access and analysis.

Deploying Isilon IQ, with its OneFS(R) operating system software, enables researchers to unify their genomic data into a singl
