Core Informatics Announces Validated Cloud Infrastructure for Regulated Labs using Platform for Science

Validated cloud infrastructure brings benefits of the cloud to regulated laboratories, reducing IT costs and providing scalability

Branford, CT – November 15, 2016 – Core Informatics today announced a new validated cloud infrastructure offering, built on Amazon Web Services (AWS), for regulated and GxP customers across industries. The validated cloud infrastructure enables regulated laboratories to experience the cost, scalability, and reliability benefits of AWS’s industry-leading cloud infrastructure. The validated cloud infrastructure offering was designed and built by Core Informatics, and runs on the AWS Cloud. The validated cloud offering was built in response to demand from Core Informatics’ customers who wanted to be able to experience the benefits of low IT overhead, on-demand scalability, and reduced deployment timelines provided by hosting their lab informatics platform in a validated cloud infrastructure. The new offering includes Installation Qualification (IQ) for the cloud infrastructure that is used to host the Platform for Science, and is complemented by Core’s Operational Qualification (OQ) validation services. Regulated labs following GMP, GLP, and GCP currently use validated instances of Core Informatics’ Platform for Science on-premises, and will now have a more direct path to the cloud. The validated cloud infrastructure will provide quantifiable time and cost savings to regulated laboratories across industries using the Platform for Science – including Biopharma, Genomics, Crop Science, CPG, and more. “Organizations in the life sciences industry are increasingly turning to cloud infrastructure for the performance, reliability and security the cloud offers,” said Steve Halliwell, Director, Healthcare and Life Sciences at Amazon Web Services, Inc. “By providing a reliable cloud infrastructure, Core Informatics is helping regulated labs using Platform for Science deliver innovative and scalable solutions to their customers and we’re excited that they’ve built this solution on the AWS Cloud.” “Core Informatics is the first LIMS and ELN vendor to offer a validated cloud infrastructure for secure hosting of sensitive data generated by laboratories and their collaborators,” said Josh Geballe, CEO of Core Informatics. “We are proud to expand our existing collaborations with AWS to provide modern technology solutions to regulated clients, who have traditionally had to deploy their validated systems in their own data centers. By using our validated cloud infrastructure clients should see cost savings of up to 80% while enjoying the robust security and reliability provided by the underlying AWS Cloud.”
