Hawaii Pacific Health Selects Bycast StorageGRID

February 23, 2009 –Hawaii Pacific Health (HPH) reported today that it has standardized on Bycast StorageGRID software to store and protect images in its multi-facility medical image storage system.

HPH, Hawaii’s largest Integrated Delivery Network conducts imaging procedures at five facilities located on two islands, Oahu and Kauai. The main data center is located in a sixth location on Oahu. The health provider’s requirement for long-term storage and protection of mission critical medical image data in this multi-facility environment presented it with a number of issues. HPH faced operational challenges to cost-effectively manage its exponentially growing data volumes and ensure high availability across the multiple hospitals, while taking into consideration inter-island network and IT resource limitations.

To meet the needs of this demanding environment, Hawaii Pacific Health has deployed Bycast StorageGRID software to create a flexible multi-tiered storage hierarchy spanning Hawaii Pacific Health’s data center and hospitals. StorageGRID intelligently manages the off-site data replication, data movement, and data placement across multiple sites and storage tiers to ensure the most relevant data is placed where needed. While improving the overall storage utilization and efficiency, the solution eliminates the need for manual backup. To achieve the highest levels of availability, HPH also deployed the Bycast High Availability Gateway Cluster module at each of the 4 hospitals and Women’s Center.

“We reduced our primary storage and backup costs by ~50 percent by optimizing our storage utilization with the storage management capabilities unique to this system,” said Micah Ewing of Hawaii Pacific Health.
