Royal Orthopaedic Hospital chooses Atlantis Computing to increase storage performance and simplify IT management
Fast and scalable single platform storage delivers high performance and lowers costs
Atlantis Computing, the leading provider of Software-Defined Storage, today announced that the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, one of the largest orthopaedic units in Europe, is using the Atlantis VDI solution to support its data storage infrastructure. The software-defined solution now supports 700 new thin clients, 100 laptops and 70 tablets, creating a 92% reduction in desktop login times and freeing up 30 minutes a day for clinicians.
The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital (ROH) NHS trust is a specialist teaching hospital in the U.K. The ROH has a high demand level for its services, meaning its surgeons, doctors and nurses need to be able to work quickly and efficiently. The hospital has a growing number of patients who require specialist and compassionate care. With over 1,000 clinical and administrative employees, access to its numerous medical applications is key.
Previously, the ROH had three separate storage devices, which offered a total of 10 terabytes of storage. However, the hospital was facing a looming crisis as the storage was incredibly time consuming to manage and was quickly running out of capacity, resulting in the decision to adopt a VDI solution.
The ROH purchased Atlantis Software Defined Storage with support from IT partner Illumit to provide ample desktop storage with the ability to easily expand capacity in the future. The Atlantis solution now underpins all of the hospitals virtualised desktops whilst also supporting the ROH’s new remote access and BYOD strategies. Employees can now access medical applications and files from personal mobile devices in minutes as the Atlantis software operates in RAM, rapidly improving productivity.
