I am curious though to chunk out such large data is something like hadoop/HBase and the like of those platforms, are those whats being used?

Hi John,

interesting stuff and good reading.

For the IT interests on here: these sequencing machine are chucking out large
amount of data per day. The project I am involved in can chew out 400 GB or so
on raw data per day. That is a small machine. That then needs to be processed
before you actually can analyze it. So there is quite some data movement etc
involved here.

All the best
