Harness Power from Heterogeneous, Dispersed Data to Accelerate Discovery & Development
SRB helps accelerate discovery and development in Life Sciences and Healthcare by pooling data resources together and facilitating collaborations among scientists, researchers, doctors and clinicians. With SRB, heterogeneous data in various storage devices scattered in multiple sites can be joined as one virtual collection, thus enabling enterprise-wide access to the data and high-performance integration to various applications.
From legacy tape drives to modern SAN and NAS, from simple file systems to complicated databases, SRB offers unparalleled compatibility to storage systems and data sets. SRB consolidates and simplifies data access, and also revives an enterprise-wide awareness of archived data for future research purposes.
Endeavors in Life Sciences and Healthcare frequently require the collective and concerted effort of multiple parties. Data sharing is an essential part of the collaboration. With SRB, collaborators around the world can share data in a flexible, dynamic and robust framework.
SRB is designed to satisfy regulatory requirements by relevant agencies including the FDA. Security, reliability and traceability are incorporated in SRB's fundamental design along with performance and scalability. SRB helps Life Sciences & Healthcare industries to achieve regulatory compliance with its audit features.
SRB was originally developed at the San Diego Supercomputer Center in response to a need for shared access to data residing on remote storage systems in the scientific community. Life Sciences and Healthcare projects were among the early beneficiaries.
