Underneath the Hood

Digital pathology presents challenging IT hurdles for many institutions going digital, like scalability, security, compliance, and cost-efficiency. At the core of Proscia’s platform lies an as-a-service infrastructure designed to meet the diverse needs of organizations working with the complexities of digital pathology information.

  • 99.99% Available
  • 99.999999999% durable
  • Automatic backups
  • High-redundancy
  • End-to-end encrypted


The storage backend behind Pathology Cloud provides an instantly scalable solution for integrating and hosting data, with managed solutions built in to automatically monitor and optimize resources, saving you time, effort, and money. This data is nearly always available and accessible through both on-demand and archival storage. With state-of-the-art data backup and recovery, you can be confident that the integrity of your information is maintained.


When applications run on Pathology Cloud, they're powered by a compute backend that's built on one of the largest data centers in the world. It helps you get results faster than any cluster in the industry, at a fraction of the cost. With batch processing, you can fine-tune an algorithm, then process across an entire data set with the click of a button, and Pathology Cloud automatically and instantly scales resources, allowing you to quantify 10,000 images in the time it takes to quantify one.

"Proscia's use of AWS to deliver a cloud-based digital pathology platform enables clinicians and researchers to securely access data whenever necessary, anywhere in the world; this is a great example of a pioneering use of the AWS cloud."

Designed with Security in Mind

Proscia's cloud infrastructure was built with security as a top priority. With granular access permissions, clients have full control over who can see what, when. All information is stored encrypted with one of the strongest block ciphers available, AES-256. This, along with exhaustive access logs available for auditing, make Proscia's cloud infrastructure ideal for sensitive data.

Security doesn't stop at storage, however. In an age where cases can be sent around the world, transport security is crucial. To achieve this, Proscia's cloud ensures that all connections are secured end-to-end using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. With SSL, institutions can send and receive data from Proscia's cloud, while preventing third-parties or intermediaries from snooping on sensitive information.

Getting to the Cloud

With large images, data transfer (uploads) can be a serious challenge. Our solutions are designed to be fast, simple, cost-effective, and secure. We deal with a diverse set of needs in digital pathology and offer a set of three hybridizable means of moving your data to the cloud. Pathology Cloud is scanner-agnostic, and can handle virtually all WSI and static image formats.
