Evolve or Die: Don’t Let Central IT Doom You With a “Dinostore”

Posted by  Quobyte  on  

I was at a conference of cryo-EM scientists recently, and if you read our recent blog posts about cryo-EM and 3D protein modelling, you know that these scientists are some of the most data-hungry, bandwidth-constrained specialists in the world. They need infrastructure able to absorb and manage petabytes for both immediate, large-scale analysis and long-term, […] READ MORE

BeeGFS Alternative and Comparison

Posted by  Quobyte  on  

Scale-out workloads used to be the domain of high-performance computing (HPC). However, over the past couple of years scale-out workloads have arrived in the enterprise with applications like machine learning or big data/analytics. Enterprise environments, and increasingly HPC users, require 24/7 availability of the storage system. What is BeeGFS? BeeGFS is an open-source, parallel file […] READ MORE

Keep Pace with Kubernetes Storage Demands

Posted by  Quobyte  on  

Kubernetes, the popular container management system, offers enterprises many benefits: agility, scalability, faster development, and management. Consequently, the open source orchestration software has quickly been gaining traction. One ripple effect is that many enterprise storage systems are struggling to keep pace with its growth. As a result, enterprises need to look at their storage solutions […] READ MORE

5 Reasons Quobyte Storage Enables Stronger Cryo-EM Solutions

By  Björn Kolbeck  on  

In a recent post, we discussed the technological advances happening around protein folding, crystallography, atomic-resolution visualization, and modeling. Success in this space carries the promise of life sciences labs being able to study existing, unmapped proteins with unprecedented speed, which in turn assists new predictive modeling techniques. Collectively, these advances may lead to cures to […] READ MORE

How Storage Underpins Tomorrow’s Protein Folding Breakthroughs

By  Björn Kolbeck  on  

Some readers may recall the rise and spread of “mad cow disease” in the early 1990s, more accurately known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). With symptoms that resembled dementia and wasting, the fatal disease proved transmissible to humans via ingestion of contaminated tissue and resulted in millions of cows being slaughtered to protect international food […] READ MORE

Storage Isolation: Pros, Cons, & Money

Posted by  Quobyte  on  

When designing storage solutions for your users, you may come across one challenge: Storage isolation. How do you ensure user A is not seeing or deleting data from user B? There are two strategies: First, you can build physically separated customer environments, including storage targets. And second, you can rely on a logical layer of […] READ MORE
