As we have been talking about for months on this blog and those of my industry colleagues many of the problems we face today with the explosion of Healthcare data within our Provider and Life Sciences based organizations is not really one of capacity but one of mobility and management. To be sure we are generating Petabytes of data from digital imaging systems in today’s hospitals to scanned drug discovery and clinical trials documents which accompany the drug discovery phase.
While many have been keeping up with the capacity issues, few if any have offered a comprehensive strategy to deal with this core problem of mobility and management until this morning when Hitachi Data Systems announced the Hitachi HNAS 3080 & 3090 extending its midrange portfolio with a new feature-rich NAS platform that includes the industry’s most robust consolidation and integrated intelligent file tiering available today.
I’m in front of Hospital and Bio-Tech CIO’s every week and without missing a beat they are very vocal about what they want. They want ADVANCE DATA MANAGEMENT and both the HNAS 3080 & 3090 delivery big. As the most integrated native intelligent file tiering in midrange today, the new Hitachi NAS platform enables customers to automatically migrate between high cost and low cost storage media to balance performance with storage utilization, increasing productivity and simplifying storage management. Optimized with Hitachi Storage Arrays and Storage Command Suite these new offerings deliver customers a single console for management of unified NAS and SAN environments.
