Object Storage for Genomics
Deploying and administering OpenStack Swift with SwiftStack for bioinformatics

By Joe Arnold

The rapid innovation in genome sequencing technology is generating data at a rate that is outpacing the falling costs of data storage. With petabyte-scale the new norm, open source object storage projects like OpenStack Swift provide a solution to this challenge.

Object storage can keep up with this data volume using low-cost, high volume storage hardware. Object storage also lets you use arbitrary tags and metadata, thus improving data management and organization.

Joe Arnold's new book, Object Storage for Genomics, examines the storage workloads faced by next-generation sequencing and includes many practical resources for deploying, managing and integrating object storage with OpenStack Swift and SwiftStack into a bioinformatics workflow.

Joe founded SwiftStack to deploy high-scale, open-source cloud storage systems using OpenStack. He managed the first public OpenStack launch of Swift independent of Rackspace, and has subsequently deployed multiple large-scale cloud storage systems. He is currently building tools to deploy and manage OpenStack Swift with his firm, SwiftStack.

The Awful Truth

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged […]

In only a few years sequencing the genome of every person may be standard. In the US this would produce 50 zettabytes of data and cost $10-20 billion per year to store this data. With Swift and SwiftStack this would cost less and its simple open source approach ensures that your data will remain accessible for 50 or 100 or more years.
