The most valuable data in any healthcare environment is the clinical information used to diagnose and treat patients. Security, speed, and operational simplicity are critical factors in managing this data; nondisruptive operation of the systems that do so is essential.
The expanding repositories of clinical data – from electronic health records, to medical imaging files, to genomic sequencing, and artificial intelligence – require an advanced level of data management, and healthcare IT leaders need solutions that can secure, store, manage, and move data from disparate systems and locations, without impacting the performance of critical infrastructure – and that’s where all-flash comes in.
When looking for a data management environment, healthcare IT leaders should make sure the solution checks the following boxes:
It’s critical that the healthcare providers have a high-performance infrastructure that can support critical applications. Look for all-flash arrays that deliver the consistent, ultra- low latency required for clinical applications – with nondisruptive operation to ensure data access, no matter what.
Cost is always a concern for healthcare IT leaders. The ability to streamline operations with an integrated storage platform offers efficiencies in both human and capital resources. Look for systems that eliminate storage silos and unify SAN, NAS, flash, hybrid, encryption, backup and the cloud into a unified storage and management environment.
Patient data is a gold mine on the black market and healthcare institutions are committed to data protection. Look for an enterprise caliber flash technology with consistent data security policies across flash, disk and cloud.
