European Bioinformatics Institute Drives Innovation with Delphix
European Bioinformatics Institute supports critical research with Delphix The European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) is a global leader in the storage, analysis, and distribution of life sciences datasets, helping scientists exploit complex information to make discoveries that benefit mankind.
EMBL-EBI started a data agility project based on Delphix with the goal being to virtualize the databases so operations teams can prepare and release research data faster and more frequently than before. EMBL-EBI successfully deployed Delphix and now hosts over 50 virtual database environments supporting test and development operations. Key benefits include: Accelerated preparation of datasets by 20% Reduced database storage requirements by 70% Improved service while maintaining flat headcount
“Reputation is the currency of research. Delphix allows us to release our data faster and more frequently than ever before reducing the time to release and deploy our data into production making most effective use of our restricted resource.”
– Steven Newhouse, Head of Technical Services, EMBL-EBI
