Under a contract agreement, Thermo Fisher will manage the deployment process from installation and maintenance to backup and recovery. The model aims to provide reduced financial and human resource investment associated with setting-up, running and maintaining traditional on-premise deployments or to their own cloud hosting service.
Labs retain control over the software upgrades and validation schedule, while leveraging secure access to data from anywhere at any time. Also, AWS Cloud deployment enables scalability to meet evolving business needs.
"Life science and industrial laboratories are increasingly adopting a cloud-first approach to enterprise-wide LIMS implementation," said Richard Milne, vice president and general manager of Digital Science. "However, managing deployments to a laboratory’s own cloud hosting service can be a costly and resource-intensive process. We have developed the new cloud services to alleviate this burden and enable SampleManager LIMS software customers to use the system’s superior functionality and integration capabilities without having to invest significant resources into the setup and ongoing management of a cloud environment."
