Breaking the classical barriers to collaboration and scientific discovery: Distance and data size

Life sciences organisations need to dramatically reduce analytics time and speed up clinical interventions, but most still rely on shipping physical disks due to inherent problems with existing networks and transfer protocol inefficiencies. Spending days to transport data is not a viable option, this session will explore technology infrastructure for file transfer that will catalyse the transition from 1GbE to 10GbE and beyond.

  • Enabling geographically distributed collaborative teams to exchange huge data sets at maximum speed, regardless of distance and network conditions.
  • Utilising proven, secure and reliable transfer technology, widely adopted for business-critical data movement.
  • Transferring large data sets, including next-generation genomic sequencing sets, amounting to hundreds of gigabytes.
