Cloud Storage Framework – An Integrated Technical Approach and Prototype for Breast Cancer.
At All Hands Meeting 2009, Oxford,
07 - 09 Dec 2009.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and has a worldwide annual incidence of over 1 million cases. Despite current technologies improve the diagnosis and treatment, newer and better forms of technologies are welcome to improve on existing analysis and techniques. Therefore, we are exploring and proposing an integrated technology platform approach based on cloud computing technologies, which would offer a working and collaborative solution for databases, security, storage/backup, bioinformatics, biostatistics and virtualization, and the working prototype is known as Cancer Cloud Computing (CCC). A particular area in CCC, Cloud Storage, is discussed in more details focusing on core technologies and how we arrive at our framework. This is based on integration between Oracle, VMware, HP, Ubuntu and EMC solutions, as well as a number of in-house development.
