Johns Hopkins to Use Caringo Software for Genotyping Data Storage

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Austin, Texas-based Caringo said that Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Inherited Disease Research will use its CAStor software for scalable archive storage of genotyping data.
 
The CIDR is a centralized facility that provides genotyping and statistical genetics services for investigators including those at 13 of the National Institutes of Health. According to Caringo, the CIDR has implemented a 31-node CAStor cluster with 104 TB of available capacity and 82 TB in use.
 
“Johns Hopkins University’s CIDR is a data-intensive environment with a need for dependable, fast archiving of clinical information and CAStor’s acceptance is a testament to its unique capabilities,” said Caringo CEO Mark Goros in a statement.
