The Health Cloud

Assistance Publique Hôpitaux de Marseille (AP-HM) puts the best of technology to use in its four hospitals. That technology generates a lot of data—and that data needs to be intact and available to the thousands of physicians and other clinicians who care for the hundreds of thousands of patients who rely on AP-HM. The digital services team at AP-HM chose Scality RING as the basis for its private “health cloud” to secure its growing volumes of data.

Business Benefits

100% Availability
In a patient care setting, keeping data available 24x7x365 can be critical. Waiting for data affects clinician efficiency and can even affect patient outcomes. As configured for AP-HM, the Scality RING can tolerate the loss of an entire data center and an additional drive without any loss of data or access to data.
Expertise
Scality’s experts worked with AP-HM to configure the storage system to their strict requirements for protocols, security levels and data access modes. The fact that Scality has expertise in the field—with supportive references and proven interfaces—brought peace-of- mind. The fact that it’s included in the UniHA catalog streamlined the process.

“The performance meets all user expectations. It’s so good, in fact, that we’re getting lots of requests from multiple departments to put new workloads on the Scality RING”

How Scality Helped Achieve Goals

Moving medical imaging storage to Scality RING has been a huge success. “We have had outstanding support from Scality during delivery and on an ongoing basis,” said Masse. “The performance meets all user expectations. It’s so good, in fact, that we’re getting lots of requests from multiple departments to put new workloads on the Scality RING.”

Today, the RING stores the medical imaging archive for the GE PACS and backup data. And those “multiple departments” that Masse mentioned have a host of different use cases that exploit the flexibility of Scality RING software- defined storage. Among them, AP-HM is looking to add long-term retentions, genomics archiving, genetic testing data, and more.

Availability

In healthcare, 24×7×365 is a reality. Clinicians demand easy, always-on access to patient data; patient care can suffer if data is unavailable or slow to retrieve.

Scalability

The reality of healthcare is that the volume of data is growing , and the retentions are long, so scalability, without disruption, is critical.
