Who is H3 Biomedicine?

H3 Biomedicine is a leading company in cancer genomics based drug discovery, delivering on the promise of precision medicine. The company was launched in 2011 with an unprecedented $200 million funding commitment from Eisai plus additional funding for clinical programs.

The Challenge

H3 had a significant on-premise infrastructure to support their scientists. As with all on-premise infrastructure, however, it was a challenge to quickly evaluate new software and keep up with the ever-increasing demand for compute and storage resources. H3 was well-aware of the advantages of cloud computing and had already established a presence in AWS, but wanted assistance from an AWS-focused consulting firm to accelerate the adoption of new services.

The Solution

Privo worked closely with H3 to improve their AWS infrastructure so it could act as a secure extension of their on-premise infrastructure. H3 had already developed a comprehensive IT automation framework written in Ansible. Privo was able to quickly understand the framework and began participating in its continued development collaboration with H3 personnel. Privo ported key life sciences applications to AWS, leveraging the infrastructure-as-code solution, and provided valuable architecture and configuration advice on AWS services such as CloudWatch, GuardDuty, IAM, RDS, and S3.
