Reliance on BioSoft Integrators for HPC Support

A large, multi-national pharmaceutical company needed an HPC for their sequencing needs. Corporate security rules required a local HPC be installed but IT resources were limited and not versed on genomic analysis. BioSoft Integrators installed a 192-core cluster configured with 30+ analysis packages. The HPC was installed and processing data on the first day of install.

A local HPC
saves labs
money

A international customer was considering a cloud-based HPC solution for a project that would last 5+ years. The cost of the cloud-based solution was compared to a locally installed solution from BioSoft Integrators. Fees for cloud-based solution included: access & storage fees, high-speed internet charges, and processing time. It was found that a BioSoft Integrators HPC would pay for itself in 1 year. The comparison did not include the additional costs of a data administer to configure and manage data in the cloud. An additional challenge for this customer was limited high-speed internet access which is not an issue for a locally installed HPC.
