New Directions Require New Capabilities
Advanced MD is an organization that helps healthcare professionals manage their data. Separation from their parent company also meant separation from their secondary data center, and a new solution would need to be found to meet their needs.
As Advanced MD prepared plans for their new system, they knew they had a few particular challenges to address.
To meet the standards of the healthcare industry, they would not only need a system with high security, but one with quick time to restore and high availability should disasters arise. A single breach or extended downtime could have the power to damage their reputation.
At the time, they also had over 250 manually configured databases, which led to inconsistencies, slow processes, and difficulty when it would come time to scale.
As a small company, Advanced MD needed a solution that was cost-effective, secure, and wouldn't require them to hire additional staff on site.
By using IaC and systems with simple compression and decuplication, Advanced MD can now infinitely scale to meet the needs of their customers, and provision new systems within just hours.
Veracity CEO, John Esser, stepped in to guide Advanced MD's migration to a cloud-based data center, and a NetApp cloud service was selected that could meet their customized needs.
Switching to a cloud-based service required a relatively simple lift and shift from their previous storage center and offered benefits that far exceeded their expectations.
Flexible cloud-based storage allowed Advanced MD to switch providers without any added cost, as they would only have to pay for resources they'd truly need. Third-party cloud services also made management simple for the business, which never needed to hire an expert to maintain it.
By using IaC and systems with simple compression and decuplication, Advanced MD can now infinitely scale to meet the needs of their customers, and provision new systems automatically within just hours.
Newfound Investment for the Future
With their newfound agility, cost savings, and scalability, Advanced MD gained the bandwidth and resources to invest in new innovations and applications for their customers, offering value they could not have delivered before.
