Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust Selects StorHouse from FileTek
Recently, StorHouse from FileTek announced that Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, a group of three major British hospitals offering healthcare services across Worcestershire and beyond, has implemented a StorHouse active archive system.
With this implementation, the trust looks to offer access to expanding clinical information assets.
StorHouse from FileTek is a storage virtualization and data management platform that can retrieve and back up large volumes of relational and file-based information with the help of an automatically managed group of conventional and alternative storage devices.
Virtualized devices from various vendors can consist of high-performance disk, commodity SATA disk, and highly efficient tape in automated libraries.
Acute Hospitals NHS Trust was recommended by Cristie Data Limited, which provides the trust with a managed service agreement. Cristie has been providing storage, backup and virtualization solutions to Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust for about 10 years.
Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust has installed StorHouse in its three hospitals, Alexandra, Kidderminster and Worcestershire Royal.
"FileTek's primary goal is to ensure customers achieve data assurance and access at the lowest possible cost per terabyte of storage," remarked Ann Dyball, European channel manager at FileTek. "And the StorHouse deployment at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust remains true to this mission. With StorHouse as the active archive infrastructure of its new secure archive managed service, Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust can reduce IT costs, lower system administration and operational overhead."
The company recently announced the general availability of its Value Realization Modeler
, a cost benefit analysis tool. The new product is available with associated professional services, and validates the annual expense savings achieved by deploying a new-generation storage approach that combines the current SSD, RAID, SAN, disk and tape-based storage to provide an inexpensive optimized storage environment.
