How to Conduct 264 Years of Research in 18 Hours

In the above video, Cycle Computing CEO Jason Stowe talks about the strong disconnect that exists between research and clinical analysis. He says the current challenge in bio IT is to analyze data, make sense of it, and do actionable science against it.

He shares an example of a 156,000-core workload run in eight regions of the globe that produced 2.3 million hours of computational chemistry research (264 years’ worth) in just 18 hours. He says this capability will transform both access patterns and the kinds of research that pharmaceutical, life sciences, and healthcare companies are able to tackle when it comes to analyzing genomes.
