GridGain In-Memory Computing in Healthcare and Drug Discovery

Fast Computations Drive Drug Discovery and Benefit Plans

In-Memory Computing for Healthcare and Drug Discovery

The GridGain in-memory computing platform is used by drug discovery companies to identify potential therapies for complex diseases. In-memory computing allows these companies to evaluate a vast array of proteins and potential treatments for a specific disease much faster than their previous approaches. This allows many more scenarios to be run to identify the broadest possible range of interventions.

Using GridGain for drug discovery enables massive scalability to deal with the large number of possible permutations as well as a 1,000x improvement in processing speeds as data is moved from disk to RAM for processing. The GridGain in-memory computing platform enables extremely high performance for organizations dealing with massive amounts of computational data.

GridGain provides speed and scale for transactional, analytical and hybrid transactional/analytical applications. GridGain is solid and proven technology that delivers predictable latency, flexible scaling, configurable data consistency and reliable uptime. GridGain can run on commodity hardware, virtual machines or cloud providers and is built on the open source Apache™ Ignite™ project code base.
