Karlsruhe City Hospital’s Chief Information Officer attaches great importance to having the highest degree of operational stability, scalability, compactness and cloud capability. The combination of HPE Converged Storage and iTernity iCAS can leverage its strengths to meet these requirements. In addition to audit-proof archiving, iCAS offers the hospital a number of further important benefits:
- High reliability and long-term stability of the data storage solution, achieved through mirroring at two sites
- Virtualization and cloud integration of the data storage solution
- Ability to seamlessly integrate different types and multiple generations of storage products
- The use of self-contained archive containers facilitates data migrations to future data storage systems
Following the successful data migration, two more steps line up for Karlsruhe City Hospital in the near future: First, data such as physician’s letters and medical reports need to be transferred from the existing Hospital Information System (HIS) via a leading Document Management System (DMS) to the new data storage solution for long-term archiving. Second, invoices and other documents from the hospital’s SAP system need to be transferred to the audit-proof iCAS archive.
