[Source: PRNewswire-FirstCall] – Isilon® Systems today announced that The Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) has deployed Isilon scale-out NAS as the primary storage solution powering its next-generation biomedical research. By using Isilon IQ to power multiple genome sequencing devices, TGen has unified its mission-critical operations onto a single, high-performance, highly scalable shared pool of storage, increasing workflow productivity and reducing costs to accelerate the discovery of new treatments for life-threatening diseases. TGen has also leveraged Isilon scale-out NAS and data compression technology from Isilon partner Ocarina Networks to repurpose its previous SAN system as a backup archive, further reducing costs and increasing IT efficiency across the organization.
