Practically inexhaustible storage for NGS data

BaseSpace NGS Data Storage and Management

BaseSpace solves the challenges of big data management and storage by providing a practically inexhaustible NGS (next-generation sequencing) data storage solution. Whether you wish to store gigabytes, terabytes, or even petabytes of sequencing data, BaseSpace can accommodate your needs.

In addition, all data in BaseSpace is automatically replicated when it’s written. Because of this replication, the traditional NGS data management headaches of making and maintaining backup copies of data are relieved.

Genomic data are big data by nature. As the cost of NGS decreases, data volumes are ever-increasing. The quantity of data can be a significant problem for traditional on-premise IT management and storage solutions.

Often, older data must be moved, compressed, or even deleted to make room for new data. Or, new hardware must be purchased, installed, and maintained to accommodate growing data collections. Factor in the personnel with the expertise to back up, manage, and secure sequencing data, and the cost can be prohibitive to even the most well-funded organization.
