Strategic Placement by ProQuest


Frost & Sullivan's "2004 Healthcare Storage Report" predicts that by 2010, medical centers will need to be equipped to hold almost 1 billion terabytes of data, or the equivalent of 2 trillion file cabinets worth of information. This data explosion creates tremendous strain on today's storage infrastructure. It also underscores the need to plan and invest today for the systems and resources that will be asked to store, manage, process and secure vast amounts of data generated in the future. One key area of investment that can make real progress in a simplified approach is virtualization of the data center. Virtualization of both servers and storage enables scalability and accessibility without crippling the bottom line. A second key to simplifying the data explosion is the establishment of national standards for data sharing. A third element to data strategy is an archival system that is secure and redundant.
