German Hospital Goes Green with Virtual Infrastructure

April 17, 2008 - St. Marien Amberg Hospital implemented DataCore Software’s implemented SANmelody as a storage foundation that supports its information systems and PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) project running on a VMware environment, to increase flexibility and optimize the utilization of its resources.

The virtual infrastructure reportedly offers high availability, better performance and lower management costs, and is also said to cut electricity and cooling costs in half by using less hardware to do more work. The DataCore storage servers supply 35 virtual machines with the PACS archive, a backup server, various file and database servers for the management information system (MIS) and several Web applications with high-availability storage capacity.
DataCore’s Thin Provisioning is used for the dynamic and automatic allocation of virtual disks, meaning that up to 95 percent of the existing storage capacity can be used before additional disk drives have to be allocated.

St. Marien Amberg Hospital is a large community and teaching hospital in Amberg, Germany. A 12-person IT team administrates approximately 650 workstations used by 1,300 members of staff. The hospital operates around-the-clock, with archiving periods lasting up to 30 years. The increasing digitalization of patient and administrative data puts tremendous pressure on managing data.
