BOSTON, May 15, 2018 – DataDirect Networks (DDN) today announced at Bio-IT World (Booth #440) that Harvard University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences Research Computing (FASRC) has deployed DDN’s GRIDScaler GS7KX parallel file system appliance with 1PB of storage. The installation has sped the collection of images detailing synaptic connectivity in the brain’s cerebral cortex.

Researchers at Harvard’s Conte Center and the Center for Brain Science conduct pioneering behavioral and neurological studies to better understand the origins of neurological and psychiatric disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, anxiety, autism, depression, Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia.

Thousands of users, consisting of university researchers and others affiliated with external organizations, create a remarkable amount of data at an order of magnitude greater than any other research group, including gene sequencing research
