ENERGY EFFICIENT, SPACE EFFICIENT and COST-EFFECTIVE DATA STORAGE SYSTEM FOR HEALTHCARE

Project description

New data storage solution for healthcare centres

Genomic research is associated with significant progress in healthcare and the increasingly relevant concept of precision medicine. However, the increased volume, variety and complexity of data pose major challenges for biotechnology firms. One only has to consider the fact that data representing a single human genome require more than 100 gigabytes of storage space. Healthcare centres in particular need innovative data storage solutions that reduce costs and increase storage capacity. The EU-funded BasePort project proposes a data storage hardware integrated with software that operates with a 10th of the power consumption, a quarter of the volume and a fifth of the weight of conventional comparable systems. The solution delivers more power and space, is easy to manage and is ideal for Industry 4.0 smart cities and edge computing.
