To create an advanced Content Delivery Network (CDN) supporting medical and research systems that make extensive use of genomic data sets.
ARES will implement a pilot project in order to gain a more detailed understanding of network problems relating to a sustainable increase in the use of genome data sets for diagnostic purposes. Suitable management policies for very large sets of big files will be identified, in terms of efficiency, resiliency, scalability, and QoS in a distributed CDN environment. In addition, ARES will make available, for the GÉANT network, suitably designed tools for deploying any CDN services handling large data sets, beyond genomes.
ARES contributes to the needs of EU strategic R&E communities involved in genomic research in relation to content delivery. The end results are: measurable cost reduction, infrastructure virtualization and consolidation, improved services for specific research and medical needs and competitive advantages over legacy solutions.
