Genomics Data Storage Archive with WEKA and Scality RING

Having a business continuity plan is crucial for virtually all organizations, but maintaining a secondary datacenter does not always make sense—if it is even an option at all. The costs of building (or leasing), staffing and operating a datacenter dedicated to disaster recovery (DR) alone probably do not make sense for most businesses. However, the combination of the high-performance parallel file system from WekaIO and object storage from Scality RING are changing the way enterprise IT leaders think about data management and data protection. This paper provides an overview of a real-world Scality RING hybrid cloud DR solution of genomics data in the biopharmaceutical industry and some considerations enterprises should take into account when considering a hybrid cloud DR architecture.
