  • SPONSORED CONTENT: Executive's guide to the next-generation datacentre

    One of the looming challenges in today’s datacentre is the rapid data growth. One study finds that the amount of data is growing between 25-50 percent annually, and by the end of 2015 we are predicted to cross the zettabyte threshold. For reference, one zettabyte is equal to about 250 billion DVDs-worth of data!
    The problem is, most traditional, “brick-and-mortar” datacentres are already approaching the limits to their power, cooling, and space capacity. So what can you do to prepare? Here are three big trends that many businesses are adopting in order to adapt to increasing computing demands:

    Currently it takes two days to find differences in genome data between cancer patients and healthy people.
    This results in poor decision making for hospitals that conduct cancer detection from base on DNA sequence matching. It also produces delays in new drug discovery and higher associated costs due to lack of insights in patient data
    By using SAP HANA as the mission-critical and reliable genome data platform it becomes possible to deliver advanced medical treatment to many more patients.
    MKI offers cloud-based genome analytic services and anticipates that with SAP HANA what traditionally took two days to process can be performed in 20 minutes.
    Their Genome Analysis process has three steps:

    As computing services are being distributed to growing numbers of users and service consumers, it has become increasingly important for IT professionals to understand how such systems work. To meet that need, Auckland University of Technology now provides a Master of Service-Oriented Computing (MSOC), a one year taught masters that is changing the landscape for the IT industry.
