Why Healthcare Needs Hyper Convergence

Robotic surgery. Sensor-laden pacemakers. Confidential electronic health records (EHRs). Telemedicine. Electronic prescription software. Numerous important aspects of healthcare delivery require always-available technology. The information recorded through these technologies resides in databases, which also need to be highly reliable.

If the technology is unavailable or the corresponding databases don’t have continuous uptime or reliability, non-responsive systems can negatively impact physicians, administrators, and most of all patient care. Plus, IT departments in general are notoriously understaffed, leaving not enough time to do firmware and driver updates.

Healthcare IT needs to be able to deploy virtual machines (VMs) at cloud speed; update firmware and drivers in just three clicks; reduce costs; and simplify overall healthcare IT operations. That’s where HPE Hyper Converged 380 powered by Intel® Xeon® Processors comes in.

When you choose HPE Hyper Converged 380 through Comport Technology Services, you’ll have the lowest cost, as there aren’t any up-front capital requirements. You will also only pay for your monthly usage, which is monitored via advanced metering. Adding to the cost savings is a 62% lower cost for disaster recovery[1].

With HPE Hyper Converged 380, you can create new VMs in one minute and just five simple clicks. Scalability increases when you are able to add capacity in minutes, not months. Once you have the new VMs up and running, keeping them going strong is easy, as you can update the firmware and drivers and apply patches in just three clicks.

To ensure secure, reliable technology in healthcare, you also need a new kind of support. Only HPE can provide the complete enterprise-level support you need with five different levels of IT support service designed around different budgets.
