Accessible, low-cost super computing power As a specialist in light and electron microscopy, cellular biologist Jack Fransen (Radboudumc), uses the computing power of Azure DRE to analyze the images he produces with his equipment. Due to the large format of the microscopic images, this is, in and of itself, a huge stride forward: making it simple to analyze data while cutting costs.
DRE is open source but secure: ideal for international collaborations The Azure DRE offers Radboudumc data analyst Wynand Alkema a secure environment to store and analyze data. In patient-oriented medical research, he has to deal with stricter privacy issues than the commercial research on food projects he also does. He has, therefore, used Azure DRE as a perk when writing a grant proposal for an international consortium.
DRE can benefit doctors as well as researchers Up-to-date analytical software, high amounts of computing power, and secure access to other people’s data are the main reasons researcher Marieke van Rijn started using Azure DRE. She knows firsthand what the benefits of the digital workspaces are for researchers and has discovered that it can even benefit doctors.
