When a healthcare organization needs the highest level of availability and data security to comply with regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), they find it within a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). Compared to a traditional data center, you can save significantly more space with HCI because it combines all workloads—including virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and electronic health record (EHR) systems—onto a single resilient platform. And, with the ever-increasing prevalence of EHRs and PACS it is more critical than ever for healthcare organizations to have a flexible, scalable IT infrastructure solution that lets you optimize existing systems without compromising availability, security, and performance.
