Nuffield Health in the UK will deploy HP's Converged Infrastructure solution to deliver the same standards of patient care across all its facilities.
Based on HP CloudSystem and HP Storage, the technology will provide Nuffield Health with a centralised infrastructure-as-a-services platform to provide cost-effective healthcare services to 300,000 people annually.
Nuffield Health chief information officer Claire Myerson said the hospital selected HP to help it on the cloud journey from a largely physical environment to a more virtualised platform with a geographically resilient infrastructure.
"HP CloudSystem is a reliable and open platform that will enable 99.999% service availability across all our facilities," Myerson added.
"The benefit for Nuffield Health is the centralisation of services and increased agility that this platform provides, enabling us to respond rapidly to the challenges and demands of our customers both internal and external."
The solution will enable Nuffield Health's information technology (IT) team to allocate resources easily across the physical and virtual environments to ensure predictable delivery and service levels.
The Converged Infrastructure technology is also expected to help the IT team to fine-tune network bandwidth and boost data-storage performance.
HP Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking - EMEA chief technology officer David Chalmers said: "HP will enable Nuffield Health to move to the cloud, unleashing the full performance, stability and manageability benefits of their virtualised IT platform."
"Nuffield Health will be able to offer service availability to support the highest levels of patient care," Chalmers added.
Nuffield Health, a non-profit organisation, operates more than 300 facilities across the UK, including 31 private hospitals, 65 fitness and well-being centres, and six medical centres.
