Scalability and making effective use of space are key to the long-term storage strategy underpinning the project to research the human genome, according to Steve Stamford, operations team leader at the Sanger Institute.

"We don't want to install something that we can't keep adding to and footprint is important," he said.

The institute generates at least half a terabyte of data a month in its efforts to map the human genome in aid of medical research.

At the heart of its storage strategy, the institute uses Compaq enterprise server clusters linked to a storage area network with back-up provided by StorageTek tape libraries.

Stamford said good management is a critical part of the storage strategy.
