Alameda County Medical Center Homecare Homebase
Alameda County Medical Center selected DataCore storage virtualization and Citrix XenServer to provide replication and to ensure full disaster recovery. By embracing virtual SAN storage servers in conjunction with XenServer, this healthcare provider has received an affordable solution that is far more flexible than a proprietary approach.
HCHB’s customers benefit from the company’s hosted applications including a Citrix XenApp-based thin client solution that HCHB hosts out of its Dallas and Louisville sites. HCHB has two high-availability (HA) DataCore SANmelody™ pairs to provide high availability on all of the storage to support the solution. According to Chris Kane at Homecare Homebase, “The DataCore SAN has really given us the needed flexibility to more rapidly deploy systems - especially in the Citrix farm.” Sherron Associates Inc.
Sherron Associates Inc. is a property development, construction, and management firm with projects in Washington, Colorado, Texas, and New Mexico. “SANmelody made it easy to set up a high-availability SAN to support our move from an aging server farm to new XenServer-based systems. Moreover, we were able to re-purpose existing hardware to run the SAN simply by purchasing some additional hard drives. The DataCore SAN just works and provides peace of mind that my system is secure,” says Sherron network administrator Gayle Spencer. Statewide Title Company, Inc.
Statewide Title Company, Inc., based in Indianapolis, uses DataCore SANmelody to pool and virtualize back-end storage for the company’s dual-node XenServer configuration. Statewide’s virtualization initiative avoids major hardware acquisitions by using virtualization software from DataCore and Citrix to leverage existing systems.
