Elastifile Showcases Cross-Cloud Data Fabric for Life Sciences at Bio-IT World
]SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 16, 2017 -- Elastifile, the enterprise hybrid cloud data management company, today announced that it will be showcasing its cross-cloud data fabric in Booth No. 127 of the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston May 23-25.
Elastifile enables data-centric scientific workflows to efficiently leverage the scalability and massive processing power of the cloud. The foundation for Elastifile's data fabric is the Elastifile Cloud File System (ECFS), a software-defined, flash-native, distributed file storage solution. ECFS delivers high-performance, POSIX-compliant file services for active data in both cloud-only and hybrid cloud deployments. As a result, Elastifile's environment-agnostic solution enables the painless "lift and shift" of Life Sciences workflows from on-premises to the cloud, with no need for application refactoring. With data accessible for on-demand processing in the cloud, Life Sciences workflows can now benefit from dynamically scalable cloud infrastructure and cloud-native software services.
In-cloud data processing can remove major bottlenecks to research efficiency and can dramatically improve the overall "time to result" for performance-sensitive Life Sciences applications. In addition, elastic, pay-as-you-grow cloud pricing eliminates the need for costly, error-prone infrastructure forecasting and allows Life Sciences IT departments to more closely align their costs with their real-time requirements.
"Traditional storage infrastructure is no longer adequate to meet the demands of mission-critical Life Sciences applications and workflows," said Shahar Frank, CTO and co-founder of Elastifile. "To support the performance and scalability needed in Life Sciences today, organizations must implement modern, hybrid cloud data management solutions, like Elastifile, which deliver fast, parallel data access to many users, across many files, spanning massive scientific data sets."
Bio-IT World Conference & Expo is the premier event showcasing the myriad of IT and informatics applications and enabling technologies that drive biomedical research, drug discovery & development, and clinical and healthcare initiatives. More than 260 industry and academic colleagues will discuss themes of big data, smart data, cloud computing, trends in IT infrastructure, omics technologies, high-performance computing, data analytics, open source and precision medicine, from the research realm to the clinical arena.
Interested parties looking to schedule an appointment with company executives or demonstration time of the Elastifile Cloud File System can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a time.
Elastifile is redefining the way data is stored and managed, enabling seamless deployment of private and hybrid cloud solutions. With enterprises and service providers increasingly looking to support both on-premises and cloud workflows, Elastifile uniquely delivers this data management to application, analytics, and infrastructure teams as the single global namespace of a distributed file/object system. This elastic, scale-out, software-defined BYOH (bring-your-own-hardware) solution brings all the advantages of public IaaS to the data center and all the enterprise data services to the hybrid cloud.
