The Cloud Computing Workshop will cover real-world use cases across drug discovery & design, collaboration, next generation sequencing and bioinformatics. This day long workshop will explore how life sciences are using cloud computing, its challenges and effectiveness, economic efficiencies, and regulatory compliance. The effective use of cloud computing as an external IT service and as an internal computing model will also be covered.

"Research on life sciences requires the generation, accumulation and analysis of massive amounts of data," said Norris. "Existing storage architectures fall far short of the scalability, flexibility, and manageability required with this next generation of data and bioinformatics."

ParaScale's software transforms user-selected, commodity hardware into enterprise cloud storage. With ParaScale, performance and capacity can scale independently, and applications can run directly on ParaScale's platform, transforming physical storage into a flexible, virtual layer that simplifies management and reduces costs. Interested parties can download a free version from the ParaScale website and build a cloud storage infrastructure.
