Pathomation announces support for cloud storage and FTP servers


Through its PMA.core software, Pathomation offers a universal image management solution. Its latest version offers the most versatile storage options available today.

Digital pathology insiders know that powerful, scalable image server software is one of the most important tools to use in any actual implementation of technology.

Thanks to its PMA.core software, Pathomation provides a universal image management solution (also called a “tile server”) with support for any type of imaging modality (brightfield, fluorescence, z-stack, wsi, raw). At present, it can handle 38 different file formats from different vendors.

Just as important as the ability to use different vendors is the options available for storage. Its latest version offers the most versatile storage options available today.

Scaling to cloud infrastructure is now possible. Pathomation natively supports the S3 protocol, which was designed by Amazon for its own AWS (Amazon Web Services) cloud platform. Since the Amazon S3 protocol has been adapted by a wide variety of cloud storage providers, cloud storage through IBM Objects, NetApp, HGST, Arvados and many others is therefore also possible.

Azure storage, by Microsoft, is also supported.

Local, network, and cloud storage aren’t the only places where slides are stored. Many places around the world do not support high bandwidth networks. In order to enable the deployment of digital pathology even in the most remote locations, PMA.core mount points can now also reference the legacy FTP (file transfer protocol) infrastructure.

PMA.core excels when it comes to managing transitions and scaling. A typical project evolves with an initial set of slides on a local hard drive (server). Once a proof of concept is built, the volume of the slides often increases so that local storage is no longer sufficient and larger volumes are kept on network storage.

Yves Sucaet, CTO of Pathomation, explains: “PMA.core can provide a seamless transition of such project trajectories. Applications that connect to PMA.core do not know the underlying physical storage model of its data. Therefore, end users can switch from one storage type to another with minimal impact.

PMA.core’s unique architecture allows you to scale over time, from a single server to networked storage to the cloud, while connecting remote legacy endpoints through FTP.

Pathomation offers comprehensive image management and a tile server to use as the basis for your digital pathology projects, whether you decide to create a high-tech environment or on a low budget.
