Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute support data intensive research applications with Riverbed.
The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute websites provide a platform for academics to access and compare research data. These sites in total typically receive around 80 million hits per month. Due to the dynamic content and high volume of requests, the Institute required an advanced load balancer and application delivery controller which offered flexibility, scalability and more control over its platform. The Institute chose Riverbed application delivery controller. As a result, the core web team can now make configuration changes in a matter of minutes, and when required, new sites can be set up quickly. This has given the Institute confidence that researchers can locate and use information without fear of crashing the entire network.
