This two-page solutions brief for Apple’s Enterprise Sales division discussed how Mac computers could be used for analyzing DNA samples.
A new generation of hardware and software is bringing dramatic reductions in the cost of DNA sequencing, combined with extraordinary improvements in throughput. While the plummeting costs are making sequencing available to a wider range of labs than ever before, smaller organizations are finding it difficult to manage the massive amounts of data generated by these new instruments. The typical approach of deploying compute clusters with network-attached storage is not practical without ongoing IT support. Fortunately, there’s a better alternative: an Apple Mac Pro workstation with Xserve RAID for terabytes of easy-to-use direct-attached storage.
