Sequencing is one of the most rapidly changing disciplines in modern research and diagnostics. Organizations want to be able to capitalize on new techniques, instrumentation, and tools. But developing, testing, and deploying NGS pipelines requires expertise and expensive computational resources—particularly implementing pipelines to run efficiently at scale. Cancer clinics, for instance, are already prepping to sequence tumor/normal samples from as many as 25,000 patients per year.
Most healthcare organizations don’t have the resources to invest in costly HPC expertise and infrastructure (including DIY public cloud implementations).Additionally, most other options for analyzing and annotating NGS data amount to one-off black boxes containing prebuilt “best practice” pipelines. You’ve spent years perfecting your science—why should you use someone else’s pipeline to get results?
Appistry leverages its Ayrris™ computing environment to help you optimize and execute an overall NGS workflow that from sequencer to analysis to storage. Ayrris enables you to
- Execute your preferred pipelines at scale—critical for major research hospitals and medical systems that have invested heavily in developing analytics pipelines, recipes, or workflows for bioinformatics, genetic analysis, and data integration and manipulation.
- Create a production environment for NGS. The never-fail Ayrris fabric is robust and fully compliant and offers full visibility and audit tracking from pipeline assembly through to execution.
- Reduce set up and maintenance costs. Extending infrastructure is as easy as plugging in a server—and Ayrris takes care of version control, job scheduling, and resource provisioning so that you can focus on science.
- Provide life cycle support for big, unstructured data, from collecting it off sequencers or from other medical systems and diagnostics through processing to transferring it into applications and systems for interpretation and storage.
- Deploy as you wish. Access Ayrris on your infrastructure or ours, get it on a dedicated appliance, or burst into an Ayrris cloud to gain added capacity or throughput when you need it most.
