Molecular Health Migrates to Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA® for Medical Data Management
Biotechnology company deploys Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA to operate a high-performance, reliable and cost-effective technology platform that combines biomedical expertise with tumor genetics and cancer patient data
Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA complemented with Bacula Systems provides us with a highly reliable and stable environment. As a result, we can now let long-term, computing-intensive workloads run with high confidence.
STEFAN FUSSVICE PRESIDENT IT OPERATIONS, MOLECULAR HEALTH
Platform and infrastructure reliability is an especially important factor as MH Guide – operated in the cloud – requires periodic backups and needs to be able to store data on different kinds of media, such as disks or tapes. The long-term processing of batch jobs was also a key consideration, which involves calculating enormously large and complex volumes of data. In order to cope with this, server stability is critical for Molecular Health. Red Hat and Bacula Systems offered them exactly the reliability, flexibility and server stability they were seeking.
After extensive testing, Molecular Health selected Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA, along with backup software by Bacula Systems, a Red Hat ISV partner. Announced in June 2014 as the foundation of an enhanced collaboration between Red Hat and SAP, Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA offers a scalable, integrated and highly available platform featuring the industry-leading reliability, quality and stability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA helps organizations make smarter, faster decisions, accelerate business processes and enable consistency of operations across the business through standardization on the Red Hat platform – which powers mission-critical systems in more than 90 percent of the global Fortune 500.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA has proven to be an organized and highly stable operating platform for the biotechnology company. Thanks to its now more powerful and expandable solution, Molecular Health believes it is well-positioned to manage and scale its future-proof platform. Combining the Red Hat solution with Bacula Systems backup software has enabled Molecular Health to benefit from a high-performance, highly reliable, and more cost-efficient solution.
