High-Performance Networking Use Cases in Life Sciences

Time 10/28/14 03:30PM-04:15PM

Room White River Ballroom A

Session Abstract

Big data has arrived in the life science research domain and has driven the need for optimized high-performance networks in these research environments. Many petabytes of data transfer, storage and analytics are now a reality due to the fact that data is being produced cheaply and rapidly at unprecedented rates in academic, commercial and clinical laboratories. These data flows are complicated by the combination of high-frequency mouse flows as well as high-volume elephant flows, sometimes from the same application operating in parallel environments. Additional complicating factors include collaborative research efforts on large data stores that utilize both common and disparate compute resources, the need for high-performance data encryption in-flight to cover the transmission and handling of clinical data, and the relatively poor state of algorithm development from an IO standpoint throughout the industry. This presentation will cover representative advanced networking use cases from life sciences research, the challenges that they present in networking environments, some solutions that are being deployed with in both small and large institutions, and an overview of a few of the unresolved problems to date.
