Solutions for High-Speed Data Transfer

Recorded on March 28, 2012 | DVD or Electronic Version for Purchase: $295   

Sponsored by Aspera

Genomic research and high-performance computing centers around the world are dedicated to facilitating biomedical research and improving human health by producing, collecting, analyzing, sharing and distributing huge volumes of high-quality research data. But as even the most capable, well-funded organizations can attest, moving such copious amounts of data presents enormous technical and logistical challenges.

Aside from issues of data management and storage, one of the biggest challenges is in actually moving and sharing next-gen sequencing and other data. While a variety of open-source tools and protocols exist, they have some disadvantages.
Over the past couple of years, Aspera software has become an increasingly widely adopted solution for the management and transfer of large volumes of scientific data, in some cases between far flung collaborators. In this web symposium, you will hear how groups in the scientific community are transforming their research by moving large volumes of genome data at high-speed over vast distances, as well as into the Amazon cloud.

Key takeaways will include:
• New solutions for moving data in and out of the cloud, e.g. Amazon Web Services
• Distribute and access data sets using Aspera Point-to-Point clients and Enterprise Server
• Share research results through the Web with Aspera Connect Server
• Connect browser plug-in; and next generation Aspera Shares
• Synchronize files and directories at high-speed over a WAN with Aspera Sync.

Chris Dwan PhD (BioTeam) – Chris will share insights into a real-world case study using NGS data and featuring a major academic genomics institution.
Michelle Munson, CEO, Aspera – Novel software solutions and strategies to meet the challenges of high-speed data transfer in life sciences organizations

An interactive Q&A will close out the web symposium.
