Lifebit Launches Federated Genomics Cloud Operating System

Today Lifebit Biotech announced the general release of Lifebit CloudOS. The fully federated, cloud-native system is designed for companies in the pharmaceutical, drug discovery, direct-to-consumer genetics, healthcare, and population genomics industries. “Because it is completely agnostic to the customer’s HPC and cloud infrastructure, workflows and data, Lifebit CloudOS is unlike any other genomics platforms in that it sits natively on one’s cloud/HPC and brings computation to the data instead of the other way around. This is a game-changer for organizations in genomics fields where data is too big to move and security and compliance are absolutely paramount.”

Lifebit Launches Federated Genomics Cloud Operating System for Accelerated Discovery

Lifebit CloudOS solves the major barrier faced by the genomics sector: data is often siloed and distributed, inaccessible for multiple parties to analyze. Without the ability to perform analyses across this distributed data the industry is stalled, impeding critical progress in precision medicine and life sciences. “Because it is completely agnostic to the customer’s HPC and cloud infrastructure, workflows and data, Lifebit CloudOS is unlike any other genomics platforms in that it sits natively on one’s cloud/HPC and brings computation to the data instead of the other way around.”
