HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology is a nonprofit organisation dedicated to innovating in the field of genomic technology and sciences to address a spectrum of biological challenges.

On average, HudsonAlpha's Genomic Services Lab produces 15,000 to 16,000 whole genomes worth of data per year. Each of those genomes are represented as a 200 to 300-gig file, creating a massive amount of data that must be stored and analyzed. Additionally, HudsonAlpha has a strong commitment to sharing research data, placing it into the hands of those who can truly make a difference with it. Seventy to eighty percent of the data gathered by the institute is made available to scientists and researchers around the globe. For HudsonAlpha, producing and moving such large amounts of data resulted in a multitude of challenges regarding high latency, dropped packets and other issues with network traversal. Given the importance and time sensitivity of the data transmissions, the organisation needed a strong, proven solution that could keep their data durable and available, allowing them to focus on furthering scientific research.

互联具有重要性。鉴于我们生成的巨量数据并且70-80%的数据将离开此建筑并传输到世界某个地方的合作者网站,我们对高延迟、丢包或网络穿越问题的容忍度非常低。
