A Clean Bill of Health for NYGH's Virtualized Infrastructure


Customer:

North York General Hospital, recipient of a HIMSS Stage 6 designation, refreshes its IT infrastructure every seven years, so it must make its investment decisions carefully. As a forward-thinking medical provider that prioritizes exceptional patient care, NYGH chose a strategic all-flash storage solution from Pure Storage for its performance, scalability and superior long-term return on investment.

Challenges:

  • Legacy storage system was incurring unacceptably high maintenance costs
  • Capital investments must last for seven years

Use Case:

  • Database – Cerner EHR, Oracle®
  • VSI – VMware® vSphere®, Citrix® XenApp®

Business Transformation:

  • Pure Storage provides the data platform that improves clinician productivity and increases the time devoted to patient care, while maximizing the long-term impact of the hospital’s investment in IT infrastructure.

IT Transformation:

  • Time required to prepare key reports reduced by up to 98%.
  • Snapshots create reliable backup without consuming precious storage capacity.
  • Certainty over future maintenance costs simplifies long-term planning.
