  • What to look for in a vendor neutral archive

    Vendor neutral archives (VNAs) continue to gain popularity in the healthcare industry, a byproduct of the need to share data among various medical imaging systems and other IT setups in hospitals. At its core, a VNA allows physicians and other providers to easily exchange clinical images, regardless of the imaging software or system in use. Various vendors sell VNAs, which puts pressure on hospital purchasing teams as they navigate through plans to install these systems.

    In this buyer's essentials guide, health IT professionals and others will learn 13 useful considerations to make before purchasing a VNA -- including important, often disregarded matters and obvious aspects that may require more details. Among the areas discussed are data migration between VNAs, information lifecycle management concerns and how VNAs can better work in tandem with picture archiving and communications systems. Continue Reading

  • Best bets for modernizing legacy storage systems

    Traditionally, storage arrays were purchased on three- to five-year contracts, but modern budgets often require companies to keep their arrays for seven years. With the pace at which data storage technology changes today, 7-year-old legacy storage systems can be considered ancient. But you can use the latest data storage technology to keep up to date. For instance, most legacy storage systems today support new media types as they come out. That means you can drastically expand a system's capacity and even performance by using higher-density drives or by replacing hard disk drives with solid-state drives.

    Software-defined storage can also be used to extend the life of arrays, especially SDS that supports commodity hardware. SDS can run on top of older arrays to deliver more efficient and newer data management capabilities.

    Older large arrays can also be complemented by flash caching devices or software that improves performance. And instead of buying a new SAN or NAS system, a company can add a smaller-capacity hyper-converged appliance or all-flash array for a specific application -- such as virtual desktops. The cloud can also be used to push off new array purchases and keep utilization down on legacy storage systems. Companies can move applications such as archiving that do not require great performance off to a public cloud.
