Hanover Hospital Attains ‘Always on, Always up’ Availability across Sites with DataCore’s Software-Defined Storage and Virtual SAN
DataCore, a leader in software-defined storage, today announced that Hanover Hospital has realized continuous uptime with its high-availability software-defined storage and has significantly reduced the time and effort it takes to provision storage and systems.
“The biggest benefit Hanover Hospital has experienced from adopting DataCore has been true high availability due to the automatically synchronized virtual disks that are mirror protected and presented to different applications spanning our two on-campus datacenters,” stated Douglas Null, senior technical architect-MIS department, Hanover Hospital. “Each data center shares critical workloads – yet provides physical separation of storage and compute in the event of a localized data center outage. DataCore SANsymphony-V is our only storage solution and it delivers ‘no touch’ failover and failback operation. It delivers a fully automated process. Other vendor solutions are replicated as active/passive, need human intervention or scripts, or require other point products or special configurations to bring the passive site online.”
Within healthcare, IT is under enormous pressure to increase storage capacity, improve resiliency and accelerate performance – all while managing costs.
