CLIMB supports research collaboration with Red Hat Ceph Storage

The Cloud Infrastructure for Microbial Bioinformatics (CLIMB) project is a collaboration between four UK universities to provide free, cloud-based compute, storage, and analysis tools for academic microbiologists in the UK. To achieve this mission, CLIMB needed to create shared IT infrastructure to help researchers collaborate to produce new medical breakthroughs. The project chose to deploy RDO OpenStack® as a scalable, easily accessible cloud platform and Red Hat® Ceph Storage to provide scalable object storage. As a result, CLIMB gained flexible, scalable storage for massive amounts of research data, as well as support for easier, global collaboration.
