Business Challenges
  • Great challenge to Computing Capabilities

    With the rapid development of gene sequencing technology, data volumes for gene sequencing have surged. As a result, the computing capacity cannot meet the requirements of the increasing data.

  • Low Data Analysis and Interpretation Efficiency

    Sequencing a person's genome generates at least 1.5 TB data each time, which takes traditional IT devices at least six days to analyze and interpret.

  • High IT Investment Costs

    The construction, deployment, and capacity expansion are complex. High requirements for computing server performance results in high IT infrastructure costs.

  • Difficult Data Sharing and Storage

    The required data volume expands as gene sequencing technology develops. Transmission, sharing, storage, and I/O performance for this massive amount of data needs to be improved.

Typical Scenarios
  • Comprehensive Protection
