3i partners with DDN Storage to deliver demanding microscopy workflow solutions and unmatched performance

1 Nov 2017 Denver - 3i - Intelligent Imaging Innovations, a provider of advanced multimodal microscopy systems to researchers around the world, has signed a strategic partnership with DataDirect Networks (DDN) to deliver groundbreaking solutions for biomedical research environments and workflows. With innovative solutions that combine DDN's high-performance data storage platform and 3i's high-performance instruments and SlideBook software, the partnership offers researchers in fields such as Neuroscience, Cell Biology, Immunology, and Developmental Biology a powerful solution to accelerate research, to speed time to results, and to fully leverage the power of the latest technologies in light sheet microscopy.

"For more than 20 years, 3i has been developing emerging imaging techniques and analysis software for fluorescence microscopy that provide cutting-edge capabilities to their customers", stated George Vacek, global director for life sciences at DDN. "Recent improvements in resolution and frame rates of these emerging technologies have pushed data requirements beyond the limits of commodity systems, but are well suited for DDN's high-performance storage solutions."

Within recent years, dramatic advances in illumination and detectors have led to data produced at up to multiple gigabytes per second. While 3i's microscopes are providing leading edge spatial and temporal resolution, they are also producing immense volumes of digital data at unprecedented rates. This data growth has out-paced the ability of traditional storage solutions to support current microscopy workflow performance and scale requirements adequately. DDN's storage uniquely supports fast instrument data ingest with unparalleled reliability, as well as analysis, archive, collaboration, publication and data protection without the need for costly, cumbersome infrastructure silos.

"DDN is well known as the leader in high performance storage solutions", stated Colin Monks, co-president and co-founder of 3i. "Working with DDN allows us to deliver better data management for a complete end-to-end microscopy solution with multi-instrument acquisition and simultaneous high-speed analysis, which lets 3i's light sheet systems perform at full capability maximizing value for our customers."

Most storage solutions in the market today suffer bottlenecks that will not allow for simultaneous capture and processing of large microscopy datasets. Conversely, the combined DDN/3i solution allows ingest and egress to happen concurrently, which enables organizations to accelerate time to results. Additionally, users will achieve improved uptime of their high-resolution, high-speed microscopes - thus increasing return on investment and maximizing value.

DDN storage platforms are ideal for high-resolution microscopy environments in Neuroscience, Cell Biology, Immunology, and Developmental Biology, among others. These solutions can scale to support multiple high data rate instruments, where each instrument may require more than 10 gigabytes per second, and can efficiently grow to hundreds of petabytes of capacity and speeds of multiple terabytes per second. DDN delivers high performance, industry-leading density, and scalability to meet the evolving needs of investigators in the biological research community. Combined with 3i microscopes, including the Lattice LightSheet and Marianas LightSheet, these ground breaking solutions are enabling new levels of productivity in microscopy workflows.
