Addressing The Key Challenges for Healthcare IT Departments

Icon Meetingneedreal Time

Meeting the Need for Real-Time, 24/7 Data Availability and Accessibility

To guarantee high data accessibility for life-critical healthcare applications, IT teams are tasked with implementing HIPAA-compliant storage solutions that include better resiliency and data protection. For real-time, always-on data access, embracing a high availability (HA) configuration across diverse storage systems ensures maximum operational continuity at all times.

Whether it is storage-related downtime, security attacks (such as ransomware), natural disasters, or operational disruptions like hardware upgrades and data migration, it is paramount to avoid disruption to data availability and accessibility.

How DataCore SANsymphony can help:

  • Reduce disruptions and achieve zero downtime, with zero recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO). Using a combination of synchronous mirroring and asynchronous replication techniques, data copies can be created locally or hundreds of miles away. Automatic failover and failback mechanisms ensure business continuity.
  • In the event of a ransomware attack or other security incidents causing data loss, Continuous Data Protection (CDP) restores data to any point in time, even seconds before the attack, minimizing operational impact.
  • Easily add/change/decommission storage gear and integrate new technology (such as NVMe) into your hospital IT infrastructure without disruption to healthcare operations.
  • Seamlessly migrate data between disparate storage systems without incurring downtime or undertaking expensive forklift operations.
Icon Managingconsolidating

Gestire e consolidare i dati presenti sui più diversi sistemi proprietari.

While hospital and health system mergers and acquisitions can generate positive healthcare benefits—including reduced costs increased conveniences, and improved outcomes—IT management teams struggle with issues related to managing and consolidating data from previously disparate legacy systems and maximizing the value and life span of existing investments.

How DataCore SANsymphony can help:

  • Create a virtualized storage pool that abstracts your storage infrastructure from disparate vendors into one common set of enterprise-wide services.
  • Following a merger or acquisition, the vendor-agnostic SANsymphony gathers a hospital system’s collective resources, managing them centrally and uniformly despite differences in hardware make and model, specification, configuration, and deployment.
  • Automated data tiering across diverse storage systems ensures the applications that require higher performance always have access to the fastest hardware, without the need for manual data migrations or human intervention.

Maintaining Mission-Critical Levels of Availability in Healthcare

Icon Improvingpatientoutcomes

Improving Patient Outcomes by Simplifying File Sharing and Collaboration

Healthcare IT departments are faced with the challenge of enabling easier user access to medical files that are distributed across different NAS systems and filers in different sites. Mission-critical patient records need to be made available for the caregiver regardless of where the data is stored.

Based on different user needs, files tend to be moved around from one location to another, which also adds to the problem of finding where they are and maintaining proper access paths and mount points.

IT teams end up spending a lot of time and effort in managing files in different namespaces, applying policies and manually deciding where files should reside, and migrating them there.

How DataCore vFilO can help:

  • vFilO creates a global file system from which all medical images, patient records, and analytics data currently held on NAS devices and NFS file shares can be easily accessed without worrying about the actual physical file storage location.
  • Files can be dynamically migrated behind the scenes between systems based on custom policies to meet performance, availability, cost, and compliance requirements. vFilO uses AI/ML-driven automation to govern file placement.
  • Free up space on primary NAS systems by offloading cold data to secondary storage (object/cloud storage). Balancing and redistributing the files also helps to reduce storage performance problems.
Icon Rapidlyscalingmedicaldata

Ensuring a Rapidly Scaling Medical Data Archive is Instantly and Securely Available

As your healthcare organization grows, managing secondary data like backups, image archives, and medical records becomes more of a concern.

Object storage presents a cost-effective option to offload and archive files from primary NAS storage while still ensuring instant accessibility via HTTP, S3, or NFS for authorized applications and users.

How DataCore Swarm can help:

  • Build a securely accessible medical data archive on-premises that can scale from Terabytes to Petabytes on any mix of standard servers.
  • Scale from simple user-based access to full role-based access control (RBAC) leveraging Active Directory, LDAP, PAM, token-based authentication or SAML 2.0.
  • Simplify storage administration and user access to data via a robust and intuitive web-based console.
Icon Enablingcompliance

Enabling Compliance and Shielding Medical Data from Malicious Attacks

In today’s healthcare environments, it is no longer viable to simply have a backup copy of data.

Organizations must employ various techniques to protect from disruptions, disasters, and malicious attacks.

How DataCore Swarm can help:

  • Avoid accidental file deletion and protect from ransomware and malware attacks with customizable immutability or WORM data protection.
  • Secure data transfer via HTTPS in-flight with the option for full-volume AES-256-encryption at rest.
  • Track content access and versions for auditing while ensuring data integrity via Integrity Seals.
  • Automate the replication of data for disaster recovery (DR) purposes to Amazon Glacier or any S3-enabled service.

National Institutes of Health (NIH) uses Swarm to store and protect Radiology Information System (RIS) data on a single archive for long-term retention with immediate access.

St. Jude leverages Swarm integrated and configurable Disaster Recovery features and can now upgrade storage independent of PACs applications enabling their Vendor Neutral Archive.

The Department of Defense consolidates medical images from hundreds of geographically distributed sites—leveraging file-level governance and long-term durability that enables their Vendor Neutral Archive.
