Inova Translational Medicine Institute
ITMI accelerates research results with private cloud on NetApp.
As an institute of Inova, a not-for-profit healthcare system based in northern Virginia, Inova Translational Medicine Institute (ITMI) is individualizing patient care through genomics and molecular medicine.
Seeking a more viable IT strategy to support its mission, ITMI elected to move to a hybrid cloud environment. With full control over an internal infrastructure, ITMI saw private cloud as a means to more reliably and cost efficiently address rapidly escalating performance and capacity demands.
Chosen for high reliability, price for performance cost-efficiencies, and seamless scalability, eight Linux®-based servers were deployed. These servers are attached to NetApp E-Series storage systems and support the ITMI Microsoft® SQL Server® back-end databases, which form the foundation for research efforts.
ITMI also purchased an all-SSD NetApp EF-Series flash array. ITMI will use it to create interactive visualizations from billions of data points, which would take too long to render by using traditional reporting methods.
ITMI also needs fast and reliable storage to move large amounts of data between its internal compute resources. For efficient testing and development, ITMI is leveraging a NetApp FAS3250 storage system that runs the NetApp clustered Data ONTAP® operating system.
