SAN JOSE, Calif., March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced it will showcase multi-tier storage solutions to address challenging data management problems for genomics, bioinformatics, medical imaging and cancer researchers at the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo in Boston, April 5-7 (booth #557). With growing archives of data increasingly offering new opportunities to drive scientific advances, Quantum will highlight how its multi-tier storage infrastructure meets the performance, cost and access requirements for most efficiently retaining and managing these valuable assets. These requirements include providing transparent, self-service access to the data, regardless of the tier of storage where it physically resides: flash, disk, object storage, tape or cloud.

Further reinforcing Quantum's expertise in enabling biosciences workflows, Claire Giordano, senior director of emerging storage markets at the company, will present a session in Data Computing Track 2 at the Expo. Giordano will explore how multi-tier storage can help genomics researchers accelerate time to discovery, improve access for distributed teams and cost-effectively keep sequenced genome data for decades.

Session Topic: Cover Your Bases: 7 Ways Genomics Workflows Can Benefit From Multi-Tier Storage
Date: Wednesday, April 6, 2016
Time: 1:10 p.m. EDT
Location: Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, Massachusetts
Registration: https://chidb.com/reg/BIT/reg.asp

"The pace of innovation in life sciences has resulted in enormous data growth, often overwhelming the storage required to support it," said Giordano. "As genomics moves from the laboratory into precision medicine, the work is too vital to be hobbled by incomplete storage solutions. Multi-tier storage from Quantum is optimized to meet the data-intensive requirements of today's genomics workflows."
