Five Ways Multi-Cloud Is Accelerating Medical Science
By Kim Read, enterprise architect at Faction
Research scientists and healthcare professionals are taking part in a new era in medicine. More data is being collected and analyzed than ever before in both clinical and research settings. But as pharmaceutical and healthcare companies begin to apply AI and machine learning to these, they need considerable computing power (“compute”) and storage.
Often, they rely upon services from cloud service providers (CSPs) such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft (Azure), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Oracle, and others, but each provider has its own strengths and weaknesses. The diversity of data and of research objectives makes it unlikely that any single cloud provider’s solution can span all of a typical research organization’s needs and scale, without limit. As a result, the trend in scientific research is to use a multi-cloud strategy.
