Designing Data Centres To Save Mankind
In the quest to find cures to mankind’s most destructive diseases, including cancer, malaria and cholera, genomic research and DNA sequencing play a crucial role.
The nature of genomic research, a cutting-edge and evolving area of science, means that the demand for data-processing, storage and high performance computing capacity will only increase over time; genomic data is fast becoming the biggest source of information on the planet.
With greater focus on sustainability, energy consumption and the need to keep apace with the evolving world of life sciences, the data centre infrastructure supporting such research must be designed to adapt quickly to this changing, data-driven environment.
Comprising more than 400 racks, >220Pb of on-site storage and consuming 4MW of power, The Wellcome Sanger Institute is host to the largest genomic research data centre in Europe. Its Campus is also one of the largest concentrations of biodata in the world.
As the Institute continues to drive research that will benefit all of humanity, join us to find out the key considerations for designing, building and operating life sciences facilities, both now and in the future.
In this session you will:
- Hear the critical considerations for design, build and operation in life sciences facilities.
- Understand how energy efficiency and sustainability have become crucial factors in decision-making.
- Learn how intricate new data centre technologies, including power, cooling, edge computing, AI and Machine Learning are helping to reduce energy consumption and fund new research.
