Genomics data becomes a critical source for precision medicine, it is expected to create an expanding data ecosystem. Healthcare and life sciences organizations that are running data-intensive
genomics workloads on an IT infrastructure that lacks scalability, f lexibil-ity, performance, management and cognitive capabilities will need to modernize and transform their infrastructure to support current and future requirements. IBM offers an integrated solution for genomics based on composable infrastructureâ€”a model where compute, storage and network are treated as well-defined services. This solution enables administrators to build an IT environment in a way that disaggregates the underlying compute, storage, and network resources. IBM
has developed a consumable, easy-to- deploy solution for genomics workloads based on the principles of composable infrastructure. IBM Spectrum Scale is a leading software-defined storage system specifically designed to excel with such workloads due to its scalability and performance characteristics. Additionally, IBM Spectrum Scale enables f lexible deployment options for genomics workloads allowing organizations to start small and scale out quickly based on needs.
