Hosted Informatics Software Launched

Jan 29 2010

Symyx Technologies, Inc has announced the launch of hosted informatics software to researchers working in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and chemical industries and academia. The new hosted offerings, to be accessed via a software-as-a-service business model, will combine Symyx software with data archiving capabilities in a secure, state-ofthe-art data hosting and communications facility. The hosted informatics environment will enable more R&D organisations to benefit from scientific software by reducing the requirements for information technology (IT) infrastructure and resources, lowering total cost of ownership and accelerating ELN deployment.

Initially, Symyx Notebook is being made available as a hosted electronic lab notebook (ELN) service enabling medicinal chemists, synthetic chemists and biologists to manage, explore, share and reuse experimental information and intellectual property (IP). Using a hosted ELN service, R&D organisations can deploy and leverage the electronic notebook quickly and efficiently without added IT infrastructure and resources while
collaborating more effectively with partners in today’s information-driven R&D environment.

In developing the hosted ELN service, Symyx is leveraging the company’s extensive operational experience with the DiscoveryGate® content platform. DiscoveryGate has been delivering hosted scientific information from millions of publications to hundreds of companies worldwide for over seven years. This unique software hosting experience positions Symyx to manage compound registration, inventory, work request and ELN systems successfully in a secure hosted environment.

The hosted informatics infrastructure provided by Symyx will be supported by Switch Communications Group LLC, an industryleading information storage and protection specialist. Switch provides highly secure, mission-critical interconnectivity and disaster-avoidance colocation services within S+S redundant, 100% guaranteed reliable, Tier 4+-designed facilities. The secure Switch facility where Symyx will host the ELN service is
compliant with SAS 70, Type II auditing standards and specifications supporting industry-standard disaster recovery and business continuity plans. Third-party offsite data backup, archiving and recovery services will also be provided. The standard hosted ELN service includes all installation, configuration, software and hardware maintenance and data back-ups for a fixed yearly fee.
