Success Story

Biotech Firm Depends on ICE for Robust IT Infrastructure and Fast Growth


A biotech firm in South San Francisco is developing a new approach to cancer research and drug development, and has been using ICE Consulting services exclusively for the last several years. Ultimately, the company hopes to develop therapies that cure and significantly improve survival for cancer patients. With its fast-track growth — growing from 10 to more than 200 employees — a pharma giant acquired the company last year.


ICE Consulting has been instrumental in helping the company scale to meet its IT needs




Note: The above story is based on work with a long-standing client, however due to our confidentially agreement, we can’t disclose the name of this biotech leader.


“As a growing biotech company, we have been using ICE Consulting exclusively for the past 4 years and we’re very happy with their solutions and support. ICE has helped us design and implement a robust IT infrastructure and is now maintaining the existing systems. We trust ICE Consulting and their ability to quickly address our needs and requirements. ICE has a staff of Windows, Linux, and network engineers, and DBAs that are very helpful and knowledgeable on all products they support. I would highly recommend ICE for any small- to mid-sized companies that want to reduce the overall costs of supporting and maintaining the IT infrastructure,” says the company’s Senior Director of Bioinformatics and IT.


What’s New with CLSA?

Digital Advocacy Center Connects Members with Legislators


What if you could engage on key legislation and public policies and help grow California’s life sciences sector? Now you can. CLSA just launched an innovative new platform that helps members contact state and federal lawmakers to make their voices heard. The first digital advocacy campaign urges members to contact U.S. Senators and Representatives to oppose the proposed $6 billion budget cuts to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and lifesaving medical R&D.


As CLSA continues to build strong ties in Sacramento, Washington and in municipalities throughout California, it is critical that policymakers understand the contributions innovative life scientists and CLSA member companies make to improve patient care.

From Server Room Build Out to Maintaining IT Infrastructure


For a recent life sciences client, ICE Consulting handled everything involved in moving into the new building. This included:

  • Server-room build-out and IT-related services
  • Mapping server-room, power, HVAC, and cabling requirements
  • Selecting, ordering and installing data and voice lines
  • Configuring and setting up the entire IT hardware and software infrastructure such as servers, firewall, switches, backup, storage, and everything else.

According to the client, “ICE worked directly with all of our vendors and updated us weekly. In fact, ICE even worked with the moving company to transfer over our existing IT hardware and helped us settle in. Thanks to ICE, the move went very smoothly. ICE is now maintaining our IT infrastructure.”
