The J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) is a world leader in genomic research. They need to support growth in critical research data with reliable, easily managed, and cost-effective storage environment. JCVI chose NetApp to overcome these challenge. They implemented Data ONTAP 8.0 on a NetApp FAS6080 scales up JCVI's high-performance computing grid to handle larger 64-bit aggregates, while a NetApp V-Series leverages old arrays to provide inexpensive tier-two data storage. This resulted in reduced IT workload by 10% reduced TCO by using NetApp software across all storage and prepared infrastructure for steep data growth.
