Inova Taps Avere Infrastructure to Move Data


NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Avere said this week that the Inova Translation Medicine Institute (ITMI) will use Avere infrastructure to move genomic sequence data between its local storage and Amazon S3 infrastructure.

Specifically, ITMI — Inova Health System's research and development arm — will use Avere's FXT Series Edge Filers with FlashMove software to move data stored in its internally developed database. The database contains 5000 whole genome sequences and ITMI plans to add 20,000 whole genomes over the next two years. It will use this data to study diseases such as cancer, heart diseases, stroke, and diabetes.

"Avere's approach and vision for hybrid cloud storage aligns perfectly with our integrated environment," Greg Eley, CTO at Inova Translational Medicine Institute, said in a statement. "We see their solutions as the glue that allows us to tie together disparate systems and treat the cloud as an on-premise data center, without the maintenance overhead."
