Focus on Breakthroughs, Not Bytes

Whether it supporting large-scale genomic sequencing to national clinical trials, bioinformatic and medical data continues to grow at an exponential rate. Given that the majority of IT budgets are staying flat or even shrinking, how does IT manage to handle this rapidly growing data expansion without disrupting critical, sometimes life-saving access to data?

They Use Komprise.

Komprise provides a comprehensive solution for managing data that provides organizations crucial analytics and insight into their data as well as the tools they need to lower storage costs by up to 70% without disruption to users or applications.

We see immense benefits of using Komprise as it provides a ubiquitous layer across storage to analyze, manage and migrate data based on its SLA, not where users put it

PacBio Manages 7x Data Growth with Komprise

Jay Smestad, Senior Director of Information Technology at Pacific Biosciences speaks about his journey to Intelligent data management and Komprise. Using Komprise, PacBio now handles massive 7x YOY data growth on a flat IT budget by moving cold data to an active archive on cost-effective secondary storage.

Use Cases

Pacific BioSciences uses Komprise to gain insight into data growth

Pacific BioSciences turned to Komprise data management software to gain insight into data growth and usage across its heterogeneous storage environment. Komprise provided a real-time analysis of PacBio’s environment, showing how data was growing, which data was active, and which data could be moved to secondary storage for cost savings.

Cut Healthcare Storage Costs

Regulatory requirements are driving hospitals and healthcare providers to keep patient data for decades. With new medical technologies generating even more data, hospitals and healthcare providers are struggling to manage data retention without breaking the bank. See how a hospital postponed storage purchases by transparently archiving cold data to cheaper storage, and by cutting the active DR and backup footprint.

Key Benefits for Genomics & Healthcare


Komprise moves data transparently so users and applications see their files as if nothing has changed. Komprise does this without the use of static stubs or by making changes to hot data paths so you always will have access to files.

Modern Architecture

The volume of data being produced by genomic sequencing is exploding. Komprise software utilizes a shared-nothing grid architecture that grows on demand and to handle this massive scale of data with intelligent automation.

Cost Saving

Maximize your tight IT budget by identifying and moving inactive (cold) data off expensive on primary storage using Komprise. Komprise lets you identify cold data across your organization and set policies that are both cost-effective and can be tailored to meet your unique storage needs.

Simple to Use

Komprise is radically simple to deploy and use. In 15 minutes, you can start getting visibility into data growth and usage. Use our planning and analysis tools to plug in your unique costs to get real ROI calculations based on the objectives you can set globally or modify for each data type or department to meet unique data retention needs.
