Runnymede Healthcare Centre in Toronto, Canada, has selected HP converged infrastructure to support patient care and improve IT administration efficiency.
The facility has deployed HP LeftHand Storage and HP ProLiant servers to reduce downtime and improve IT staff productivity.
Runnymede chief information officer and privacy officer Angela Copeland said: "With HP Converged Infrastructure solutions, we’re now able to focus on clinical applications since the only attention our data infrastructure requires is the short time it takes to add capacity."
HP LeftHand Storage, part of the HP Converged Storage portfolio, merges scale-out storage software with HP ProLiant server hardware.
The programme will replicate data across a group of storage nodes, which enables high data availability and eliminates single points of failure across the storage area network, according to HP.
HP ProLiant rack-mount servers are virtualised with VMware vSphere to increase IT flexibility and scale up as hospital requirements expand.
