DataFrameworks is pleased to announce its selection as a 2018 Top 25 Life Sciences Technology Vendor by CIO Applications.

“We are truly pleased to accept this award from CIO Applications,” said Will Hall, CEO at DataFrameworks. "We have focused intently on helping life sciences companies work smarter and faster with high speed data scans that give a near real time picture of data location and consumption, saving them substantial time and money."

DataFrameworks' ClarityNowTM software standardizes the organization of petabyte scale data across any heterogeneous storage system, including cloud. ClarityNow is used by clients with technical and rich content workflows in industries such as life sciences, EDA, software development, media and entertainment, oil and gas, and more.

The Silicon Valley based company's life sciences clients include Scripps Research Institute, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Howard Hughes Medical Institute and more. DataFrameworks' enterprise solutions give life sciences organizations the ability to see, and use, the real business value of their data.

"The biggest challenge in this field, by far, is the huge amount of data being generated by the ever advancing technology of scientific instruments," said DataFrameworks co-founder Paul Honrud.

Today, scientists can generate or acquire data much faster than the operational ability of data curators to manage the data and the physical data infrastructure's ability to store, and accommodate. These problems become exponentially more challenging at scale, which tends to break traditional tools like the standard locate and find commands.

No longer just a storage lifecycle problem, the challenges now encompass the spectrum of finding, moving, and sharing data among multiple entities and providers who must triage and manage reusability, retention and deletion of scientific data.

ClarityNow is purpose built to address these breaking scientific data pipelines. Its architecture is specifically designed for life sciences speed and scale: double to triple digit petabytes of data and double to triple digit billions of directories and files.

Honrud added, "I believe our proven ability at scale, along with specifically addressing the needs of life sciences researchers, data curators and storage administrators, is what put us in the Top 25."
