Customer Quote of the Month
“Our use of HPC for genomics and imaging comes with a unique set of requirements that does not fit into standard clouds, so we were very excited to hear about the new TrueNAS M-Series, and iXsystems‘ strategy to focus on private clouds. We plan to add the TrueNAS M-Series to our HPC infrastructure to supplement prior-generation models of TrueNAS. We expect that adding the TrueNAS M-Series will significantly improve our ability to analyze our HPC genomic data and deliver critical insights to the life sciences community.” – Scott Pegg, CIO of Gladstone Institutes, UCSF
