Scality RING enhances healthcare data centre efficiency

5th June 2020

Scality has reported how the Scality RING brings efficiencies in today’s modern healthcare and genomic data centres. Over 40 global hospitals, hospital systems and genomics research institutions in the US, UK, Germany, France, Switzerland, Israel, Japan and South America have implemented the Scality RING.

These customers trust Scality with their mission-critical diagnostic imaging data managed by leading PACS and VNA solutions, as well as key genomics data for use in development of new biopharmaceuticals. Many of these customers have experienced the ease of initial deployment and the scaling of RING with seamless capacity expansions to petabytes of storage.

IT leaders in these healthcare institutions share significant data growth challenges for radiological imaging, genomic sequencing, and other healthcare related services and applications.  To modernise and address these challenges, IT leaders are now deploying scale-out software defined storage for on-premises private and hybrid cloud environments.  

Respondents reported that scale-out storage deployments are 52% faster than traditional storage, require 46% less staff time managing the storage platform, and result in a 28% lower TCO (saving $270,000 per petabyte over three years).  Expand these savings over five years and these IT leaders could save millions of dollars in resource and capital expenditures with software defined storage solutions. 

“The growing nature of data in the age of COVID-19 puts more pressure on the healthcare and genomics industries to modernise with cost-effective solutions,” said Amita Potnis, IDC Research Director.  “Our survey suggests that IT leaders who are required to build on-prem private or hybrid clouds, can rest a little easier with a cost-effective software defined, scale-out object storage solution like Scality offers.”
