Case Study: Clemson University Bioinformatics Lab

Cisco cloud solution powers lab research

Scientists at Clemson are working to solve some of life’s biggest puzzles: autism, cancer, declining crop yields. Learn how Cisco Container Platform helps the lab navigate data and make big breakthroughs.



  • Excessive data required storage across
    on-premise locations and public clouds
  • Researchers had to learn multiple tools, distracting them from core projects
  • Limited technology budget


  • Automated Kubernetes cluster deployment greatly reduces repetitive activities
  • Native integration with AKS, EKS, and GKE eliminates need to learn different toolsets
  • Mission-critical patient data is now secured and always available

What they're saying

Every lab's going to be generating terabytes, gigabytes, maybe 10 or 20 years from now exabytes of data, and people can barely process things at giga scale right now. It's really important that the computer systems match what the biologists need so they can do their work.
