Healthcare - OverviewHealthcare organizations are undergoing a massive transition to the digital world. Unstructured data is growing 80-90% annually. High resolution clinical images, x-rays, lab analysis results, patient history and doctors’ and nurses’ written notes, are all moving onto digital media. Structured and virtualized data are also growing at historic rates. Storing and accessing this data in a cost-effective and efficient way is critical to the next generation of healthcare delivery.
Equally important is business continuity planning; for example HIPAA mandates data protection measures to ensure redundancy for patient records over the life of the patient. This need for 1-to-1 replication and extended storage periods for data mean that storage solutions must not only address the high performance requirements associated with healthcare application demands, but also capacity efficiency to handle expanding data loads.
