Their challenges

OncoDNA is facing an explosion of its data generated by its research & Analysis troughout their differents Next-Gen Sequencer. Their challenges are :

  1. To scale they storage and archive capacity higher than 100 TB.
  2. To connect with API the application to bring value to their data
  3. To index their content to facilitate the search

They were looking for an all in one solution which organize their data throught a transparent layer. Their best choice will be a platform that will scale following the storage capacity growth.
