Lab7 High-Performance Genomic Cloud Powered by IBM

A Solution Built for Large-Scale Genomic Research

Lab7 High-Performance Genomic Cloud Powered by IBM

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.

Utilizing ESP, the Genomic Cloud includes full support for all aspects of laboratory informatics, including:

  • Laboratory information management system (LIMS)
  • Analysis pipeline management platform
  • Default infrastructure capabilities
  • Extensibility as needed to include third-party software and hardware solutions

 

Features that are unique to the Genomic Cloud include:

  • Robust purpose-built hardware
  • Powerful data security
  • Global data center presence
  • Comprehensive/complete software stack that streamlines deployment and operations
  • Analysis and reporting automation with Lab7 Enterprise Science Platform (ESP)
