So I have some tumor/control samples combined with clinical data ; it's exomes and targeted sequencing that are stored on a server I outsource sequencing (bam bai qc...) along with Mutect files, excel/access files with variants. Then I have Clinical data of patients as I am clinician and I am looking to build this database in a bigger more useful repository. As of now it is like 10 patients so I can do all things manually and I know and remember all the samples inside out so I know where and what to look at, but as it will grow I can't assume I can operate like that anymore. I do not see this database growing into 1000s of samples as I take care one case at a time but who knows All in all, should I store variants and clinical data only and leave raw files at the place I outsource data? or store all files and data? I would prefer a solution that is more drag and drop, dumb down for non bioinformatician but if it is impossibile then I am open to more sophisticated way

I store the data in a distributed HDFS system.
