IBM Launches Medical Grid Computing Solution

May 16, 2007 - IBM announced at the American Telemedicine Association today the availability of its new Grid Medical Archive Solution (GMAS), a cross-IBM offering comprised of storage, software, servers and services with a multi-tier, multi-application and multi-site enterprise storage archive for delivering medical images, patient records and other critical healthcare reference information on demand.
Leveraging IBM Grid Access Manager Software, IBM GMAS uses advanced virtualization, automation and grid technologies to provide healthcare and research organizations with reportedly fast and secure access to archived medical information, while delivering real time failover and self-healing capabilities, as well as information lifecycle management and advanced data protection functions.
GMAS is a single-storage system designed to aggregate underlying storage silos into a single enterprise storage pool – even if these silos are spread across multiple facilities and consists of multi-vendor storage media. This highly automated system allows IT administrators to focus on storage planning and infrastructure improvements and eliminates many non-value added manual administration tasks, thereby enabling higher IT service levels and levels improving clinical outcomes. Orlando Regional Healthcare is one of the very first adopters of IBM’s GMAS solution.
IBM GMAS is a packaged solution based on IBM’s System Storage EXP3000, System Storage Grid Access Manager, System x 3650 servers and IBM Global Technology Storage Services.
