Executive Summary

Arima Genomics was quickly outgrowing their on-prem storage space, which they used for large raw data sets from thousands of customers worldwide. Arima Genomics processes the data through proprietary software/solution and returns 3D models. Stratus10 set up AWS Transfer Family, providing Arima's customers with an intuitive user interface to support their SFTP transfer protocol. Now, customer accounts are easily managed via the AWS Management Console.

Arima Genomics is advancing the life sciences through the power of 3D genomes. They develop innovative solutions that drive discovery in genomics and improve human health.
 

Challenge

Arima Genomics was quickly growing out of on-premise storage space and continuing to pay for additional on-site storage did not make financial sense for them. Arima Genomics receives large raw data sets from thousands of customers worldwide. Arima then processes the data through their proprietary software/solution and returns 3D models of the customers’ data.
 

Solution

The solution was to move both the storage and transfer mechanism of the data to AWS and take advantage of Amazon S3’s storage lifecycle and archive processed data to the S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage tier, saving Arima Genomics over 95% off S3 Standard storage pricing.
 

    Implementation

    To get the data into Amazon S3, Stratus10 set up AWS Transfer Family, providing Arima Genomics customers with an intuitive user interface to support their SFTP transfer protocol. Arima Genomics is able to manage customer accounts as needed via the AWS Management Console.

    Additionally, security was top of mind for Arima Genomics, so Stratus10 ensured that their AWS account complied with the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark standard, ensuring security best practices were in place at the AWS account level.
