About Us

The National Omics Data Encyclopedia (NODE) stores raw sequence data from "Next-Generation" sequencing technologies including 454, IonTorrent, Illumina, SOLiD, Helicos and Complete Genomics. NODE is a primary archive of high-throughput sequencing data and is part of Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Data submitted to any of the three organizations are shared among them.

Computing and Storage Platform

Large and Secure Storage

The NODE system is built on a large network access storage system, currently its capacity is close to 3 PetaByte . The storage system is equipped with the low latency network such as Infiniband and 10Gb and with advance Cluster File system, it also can be scale up to 40 PB under a single volume. The NODE system is protected by large-scale Tape backup library, the data can be securly backuped and restored daily by the different policies such as snapshot, incremental and full backups.

High Performance Computing

We have provided High Performance Computing Cluster with more than 200 computing nodes, the cluster peak performance can reach to 30TFlops .
