High-Performance Genomic Cloud

A Solution Built for Genomic-Scale Workflows

The Lab7 High-Performance Genomic Cloud powered by IBM addresses the gaps in traditional commodity cloud and SaaS infrastructures, providing a complete “Enterprise-as-a-Service” solution. Orchestrated by Lab7's Enterprise Science Platform, the Genomic Cloud was built on the IBM Cloud platform and was designed specifically for genomics and other data-intensive sciences, using IBM Spectrum LSF® and IBM Spectrum Scale™ to support high-throughput genomics work.

GENOMIC CLOUD ARCHITECTURE

Orchestrated by Lab7's Enterprise Science Platform, the Genomic Cloud was built on the IBM Cloud platform and was designed specifically for genomics and other data-intensive sciences, using IBM Spectrum LSF® and IBM Spectrum Scale™ to support high-throughput genomics work.

How is the Lab7 Genomic Cloud Unique?

The Lab7 Genomic Cloud features tightly coupled IBM Spectrum Scale storage, high memory compute nodes, and a fast internal network designed for high-throughput genomics. It has support for up to 500 compute nodes and more than 10 Petabytes of storage; supports remote, on premises or hybrid cloud models in isolated single-tenant or multi-tenant instances; and is designed from the ground up for scientific computing.

With a virtual network infrastructure featuring a dedicated VPN, VLAN and single sign-on support, the Genomic Cloud offers secure access with no additional setup or costs.

By partnering with IBM Bluemix Infrastructure, which has data centers on five continents, the Genomic Cloud can reach customers anywhere with region-specific cloud regulations.

Lab7’s comprehensive and complete software stack streamlines deployment and operations. The Genomic Cloud works seamlessly with Lab7 Enterprise Science Platform (ESP), BioBuilds and IBM Spectrum LSF Scheduler.

ESP is the backbone of the interface, orchestrating all data movement and analysis, and automating analysis and reporting. Sample and data tracking, protocol and analysis pipeline management, and powerful reporting tools offer a complete enterprise- scale data management platform.
