Business Challenge story
Centre de Regulació Genòmica (CRG) wanted to help worldwide research institutions share genome sequencing data. How can such large amounts of data be transmitted quickly and cost-effectively?
CRG developed a file transfer platform based on IBM® Aspera® solutions—enabling it to share files from a 2 petabyte genomics archive, giving researchers rapid access to the data they need for their cutting-edge genetics projects.
Today, CRG shares file packages as large as 500 TB at speeds of up to 3 Gbit/s, helping universities and laboratories leverage existing sequencing data to support cutting-edge research.
