Over the past few years, the healthcare computing environment has changed dramatically. Driven as much by new opportunities for innovation as by security threats to data and operations, the pace of change is only likely to accelerate in the years ahead. Keeping up with these changes is no longer just an issue of ideal optimization, it's a matter of survival for many healthcare organizations whether they recognize the risk or not.
Infrastructure management, especially for businesses with limited IT staff, can often seem overwhelming. As technology solutions that make management easier have evolved, a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) has allowed businesses of all sizes to reduce costs and simplify maintenance of their infrastructure and allow resources to focus on more productive activities.
Today’s healthcare IT landscape is shifting from an environment where data needs to not just be stored and shared, but fully utilized to make informed business and patient-care decisions. To compete in the digital economy, healthcare organizations must evolve data centers to become more data-centric and data-driven.
There’s a lot of talk lately about ‘The Edge’ - and not the famed U2 guitarist, but edge computing and how it is changing network design.
Today’s modern data centers are nimble, combining the agility of cloud and virtualization software along with Software-defined Networking (SDN). Moving beyond the standard deployment of hardware based compute, storage and network solution, the new hybrid infrastructure includes software virtualization solutions for compute to fully automated cloud software platforms.
