Genomics 100X?

A UK customer found E8’s storage, used with Spectrum Scale (GPFS), enabled it to accelerate its genomics processing 100X, from 10 hours per genome to 10 genomes per hour. The E8 array was used as a fast storage tier and scratch space.

An 100X increase in throughput sounds too good to be true. Are there any details on what they actually did? I checked E8's website, but nothing leapt out.
