Favrille Gains Flexibility, Scalability to Grow Rapidly With NetApp and VMware
Favrille is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of patient-specific immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer and other diseases of the immune system. Originally equipped with Direct-Attached Storage (DAS), the company experienced a spike in its volume of data from two mass spectrometer machines it was using for research. Even though FDA approval was still far off, Favrille had to begin scaling up. Favrille chose the NetApp FAS3020 storage system for its flexibility and ability to handle rapid growth. With the Data ONTAP operating system, the NetApp FAS3020 storage system can support both FC SAN and iSCSI SAN network protocols and both Fibre Channel and SATA disk.
