Established in 2007, Biotest Pharmaceuticals owns and manages plasmapheresis centers across the United States and operates a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Boca Raton, Florida. The company is a subsidiary of Biotest AG which employs approximately 2,100 people worldwide. Its scientists collaborate globally on plasma research and other academic programs, often managing large amounts of data that require secure and flexible storage solutions. SnapServer includes SnapECR™, an encrypted replication feature which allows information to be shared securely amongst all Biotest’s pharmaceutical sites.
With more than 300,000 SnapServer NAS storage units shipped along with the award-winning GuardianOS® operating system, SnapServer continues to grain trust for protecting and managing critical information. Moreover, seamless integration with SnapCLOUD™, the company’s virtual enterprise NAS platform available in the Azure Marketplace, enables rapid solution deployment for organizations in a secure, fast and easy way which utilizes a comprehensive hybrid cloud storage infrastructure with centralized management.
Sibrina Shafique, Sphere 3D’s senior director, product management and marketing commented, “Significant transformations in the pharmaceutical industry have led to exponential growth in research data, which at most times is generated in geographically-distributed locations. SnapServer, a widely deployed data storage solution with operational simplicity, offers high reliability and seamless growth. In a geographically distributed storage deployment, the built-in array of replication tools makes it easy to move the data around and the SnapStorage Manager™ enables centralized management. We believe our SnapCLOUD™, SnapSync ™ and SnapServer product family is a game changer for the storage industry and puts us in a unique position to be a single source for a complete private and hybrid cloud experience.”
Biotest completed a thorough and diligent examination of many companies and selected Sphere3D’s Overland Storage subsidiary as its partner of choice to meet its global storage and solution requirements. Sphere 3D’s workflow enhancement provides Biotest with the means to access and store its research safely while accessing and moving collaborative information around the world with other medical professionals and staff.
