FileTek, Inc., a leading global provider of large-scale data management, Big Data Storage virtualization, and active archive solutions, today announced that Schrödinger, L.L.C., a scientific leader in computational drug design for pharmaceutical and biotechnology research, has evaluated and selected a StorHouse active archive system to be installed at its Portland, Oregon location. Schrödinger will use StorHouse to secure, protect, back up, and provide access to vital research and product information, including pharmaceutical/biotechnology experimental data and related software code ranging from molecular modeling programs to comprehensive drug design applications. By selecting StorHouse, Schrödinger joins the long list of prestigious FileTek biotechnology research and healthcare-related customers that benefit from the unprecedented operational and economic value that StorHouse provides to life sciences, scientific research, and high-performance computing (HPC) environments.

“The increasing volume of biomedical data coupled with the proliferation of more cost-effective genomic sequencing equipment and the growing need for direct, any-time access to research data at the granular level is creating tremendous storage challenges for life science organizations,” commented Gary Szukalski, President of FileTek. “By selecting StorHouse, Schrödinger will overcome these challenges and benefit from blended backup and archive, affordable scalability, ease of use and system administration, data protection, and assured access to all data – online, on time, any time, every time – at the lowest cost per terabyte in the industry. We sincerely welcome Schrödinger to our FileTek life sciences customer roster.”

About StorHouse for Life Sciences

StorHouse for Life Sciences is enabling Big Data Storage virtualization and data management software that unlocks the potential for medical researchers and doctors to prevent, cure, and manage disease. Designed specifically for life science applications, it provides the affordable scalability, cost-effective operation, sustained performance, automated system management, and storage virtualization features to support very large data volumes and record sizes. With its modular design, the system can expand proportionately to accommodate anticipated data growth at any time. Moreover, StorHouse high availability, accessibility, reliability, and backup features ensure timely, in-depth access to a complete and directly accessible repository of biomedical data for thorough scientific research and analysis.

Operationally, StorHouse for Life Sciences intelligently blends disk and tape as part of a scaled-out NAS environment while providing an intelligent active archive strategy for Big Data. Because StorHouse abstracts hardware, users see a single unified global namespace rather than specific device types. SSD, JBOD, RAID, MAID, and tape, including LTO varieties, all look like one unlimited storage pool. In addition, by storing data in native rather than proprietary file format, StorHouse eliminates the need for formal restore procedures. Instead, users have self-service access to StorHouse-managed data at any time without IT intervention. No application interfaces or changes to existing applications are required.
