  • Medical image storage sharpens focus on precise patient care

    Personal photos in an album can conjure up all sorts of memories and emotions. Then there are personal photos of another kind that can mean the difference between life and death. In healthcare, clinical images of patients are critical to proper diagnosis and treatment. Once placed in envelopes and stored on metal shelves, those images -- be they X-rays, CT scans or MRIs -- now come in digital formats and have proliferated to the point where on-premises storage is cumbersome and inefficient. Hospital CIOs see the cloud as the answer to medical image storage and improved patient care by providing doctors with quick and ready access to medical images.

    In the January issue of Pulse, our editor's letter takes that capability one step further, allowing IT pros to perform medical image analytics that can add a whole new dimension to population health management and precision medicine. Along those lines, our cover story examines the growing healthcare trend of vacating the premises … but not entirely. Security, privacy and control issues have prevented CIOs from going fully to the cloud. Instead, they're opting for hybrid cloud architectures. In another feature, we stress the importance of readily accessible and well-organized medical image storage in the cloud to make analytics performance more efficient and better at determining patient outcomes for individuals and large populations.

    Also in this issue, we highlight the benefits of using a hybrid cloud storage approach to mine and analyze vast amounts of critical data from those images. Beneficial features include security, file activity monitoring, data loss prevention, data mining, disaster recovery, storage bursting, tiering, testing and cost controls.

  • The hottest data storage technology trends for 2018

    For the past 15 years, Storage magazine has identified the hottest data storage technology trends you'll want to follow in the coming year. All of our selections may be "newish" tech, but they're also tried and true, having demonstrated their effectiveness and worth in the data center. You won't find anything bleeding edge on our list -- only proven and widely available technologies made the cut. Honorees for the hottest data storage technology trends of 2018 cover a wide spectrum of storage tech, from predictive analytics to ransomware protection to converged secondary storage, multi-cloud and nonvolatile memory express over fabrics.

    Although we do our best to predict the hottest data storage technology trends, sometimes our crystal ball isn't as clear as we would like. Once again, we've included a report card on how last year's picks panned out. And, as a bonus, we've provided a list of storage trends that aren't quite ready for prime time and didn't make our 2018 hot tech list. There's always 2019 for those technologies!

    Not all backups are created equal or even follow the traditional model of only copying files that have changed since the last backup to a storage device on a media server. Take the concept of backup-less backups, commonly called flat backups. Here, storage-level snapshots created on a server or filer are backed up and replicated to another server filer. This is different from a typical backup in a couple ways: There's no media server, and the protected copy is just that, a copy -- in the same format as the original data. Find out more about backup-less backup, the vendors that offer it and how you can best make use of the technology for your organization.
