IT major HP announced that Brant Community Healthcare System (BCHS) has improved performance and reliability by deploying an HP Converged Infrastructure to speed the delivery of medical applications to enhance patient care.
HP in a statement said BCHS selected an HP Converged Infrastructure including the HP BladeSystem c7000 enclosure with HP ProLiantBL460c G7 server blades to modernize its infrastructure to reduce downtime and support medical applications and to increase the use of electronic health records (EHR) to improve patient care by speeding the delivery of medical information.
BCHS also expanded virtualization technologies in its IT environment to simplify management, and accelerated the provisioning of new services after deploying. It deployed HP Storage for increased availability, and HP Virtual Connect technology for simplified network management.
“With our HP Converged Infrastructure, we now have the uptime and performance required to ensure high availability of our critical medical applications. In addition, HP provided vital consulting services and expertise to help us transition from a mainly physical infrastructure to a highly virtualized one, giving us the redundancy and visibility needed to prevent failures, and the flexibility to quickly deploy new services,” said Tim Armstrong, chief information officer and value stream leader, Knowledge and Information, Brant Community Healthcare System.
