May 14, 2014 — Dicom Systems will be demonstrating CloudVNA, its new cloud storage solution that runs on users’ own Amazon EC2 environment, at the 2014 annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) this week.
Vendor neutral archives (VNAs) have been gaining more popularity in recent years, because they allow users to consolidate, standardize and archive images and data from disparate PACS (picture archiving and communications systems) and physical locations. However, implementing a VNA can be expensive and time-consuming. CloudVNA is an on-demand, obligation-free solution that uses Amazon infrastructure and can be set up in a matter of minutes and used by facilities of any size. It allows customers to have full control of their data on an AWS (Amazon Web Services) account without any long-term obligations.
The CloudVNA solution complements any on-site vendor PACS archive infrastructure. The low, pay-as-you-go pricing adds flexibility and eliminates the need for large on-premise storage solutions and resources needed to manage storage infrastructure.
?"We developed CloudVNA to address the broadest range of use cases with cost effectiveness, infinite scalability, HIPAA compliance and reliability," said Dean Whitt, vice president of sales and business development for Dicom Systems. "For our initial implementation we selected Amazon AWS with EC2 as a cloud service provider partner. Our clients benefit from owning their data and paying only for the features and resources they utilize. This represents a significantly reduced cost of study storage."
