Executive Summary

Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (WTSI) wanted to ensure continued rapid accessibility to 650 researchers and the worldwide scientific community of 74 terabytes of Large Object (LOB) sequencing data in the WTSI's short read archive, while handling data growth of 4 terabytes to 10 terabytes weekly and cut hardware and system maintenance costs. WTSI implemented Oracle Database 11g to benefit from SecureFiles, a re-engineered storage concept that enables large unstructured files to reside and be managed in the database and used SecureFiles to consolidate structured and unstructured LOB data, such as complex sequenced data previously held in separate file server-based archiving systems, on Oracle Database 11g.
