OpenCGA vs IVA
OpenCGA is an open-source project that aims to provide a Big Data storage engine and analysis framework for genomic scale data analysis of hundreds of terabytes or even petabytes. OpenCGA provides a scalable and high-performance Storage Engine framework to index biological data such as BAM or VCF files using different NoSQL databases. A metadata Catalog has been also developed to provide authentication and ACLs and to keep track all of files and sample annotation. All these can be queried through a comprehensive RESTful web services API or using the command line interface.
