How Pantex Used Data Virtualization to Share Sensitive Information Across Facilities to Maintain the Nuclear Weapons Stockpile
Pantex Plant is the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) production integrator and provider of nuclear deterrent for the Department of Defense. Faced with rising costs and increasing security risks, the NNSA established the Product Realization Integrated Digital Enterprise (PRIDE) program to securely deliver weapon product lifecycle information across different sites in North America. They selected Data Virtualization as one of the key tools in implementing this project and picked the Pantex to lead the data virtualization deployment initiative. The Pantex began this process by...
Curing Advanced Data Ailments Using Data Virtualization to Aid Worldwide War on Cancer
Two of the 27 institutes that make up the National Institutes of Health (NIH), nation’s medical research agency, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) joined forces to execute on a project known as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). The TCGA mission is to catalog the genetic mutations responsible for cancer using genome sequencing and bioinformatics. They collaborated with the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC), a collaboration of the world’s leading cancer and genomic researchers, to making the genome data available to a larger...

ChallengesTwo of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), collaborated to execute a project known as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). The TCGA mission is to catalog the genetic mutations responsible for cancer using genome sequencing and bioinformatics. The genome data under TCGA had to be converted to a different format (ICGC) to make this information available to researchers and scientists around the world. The challenges faced in this process were
