High Performance Computing (HPC)

An HPC designed specifically for Genomic Analysis​

NGS Technology relies on having enough power and storage to perform large scale genomic processing. Our HPC solutions are turnkey appliances configured specifically for today’s & tomorrow’s sequencing needs.

Key Benefits of our HPC product:

Lower Cost than Cloud Options

Designed for Speed specific to NGS datasets

Maximum Reliability using tier 1 components

Pre-Configured Analysis Integration ~20+ analysis packages are installed and tested to ensure functionality upon installation

Security

Security in having a local installation without cyber risks

High Performance Computing Continuing Support

BioSoft Integrators offers high-performance servers and modular storage products. Our HPCs are flexible and scalable for genomic data analysis. Our solution conserves your IT resources by being remotely supported by our staff, who are experts in computing needs for NGS. A BioSoft Integrators HPC can quickly and easily be added to or reconfigured, allowing your lab to keep pace with changes to your computing needs with virtually no system down-time.

The system is tuned specifically for multiple high throughput sequencing analysis workflows. Whether you’re using Illumina, PacBio or another sequencing technology, this system is right for you. Our HPCs are pre-loaded with all open-source analysis packages so when the system arrives, you are processing samples a few hours after installation.

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.
