Healthcare Storage Solutions

The requirement for healthcare data storage is greater now with the threats of malware and ransomware. Reduced I.T. budgets mean data storage solutions will typically last for 5+ years. The requirements for each healthcare applications are diverse and varied, X-ray information needs to be stored for 50+ years, patient records require fast access. Another requirement for the healthcare sector is data backup, this needs to be secure, fast and easy to use. The healthcare data storage requirement may also need to provide multiple protocols i.e. iSCSI, NAS & Fibre Channel in order to maximise the storage cost.

Data Growth

The amount of data healthcare is creating continues to increase and continue to rise at 36% P.A. through to 2025. Healthcare is probably one of the largest consumers of data storage based on the sheer number of patients, applications and the type of information collected from X-rays, 3D imaging, ultrasound scans and patient records. The storage systems where this data resides needs to be affordable, reliable and secure solutions to these issues will only become more critical.

To manage data growth, we have newer and more advanced storage technologies, 14TB HDD, NVMe flash, LTO-8 tape storing up to 30TB! How these types of technology are deployed and used can make a massive difference to the way the healthcare industry stores data.

Legislative Compliance

Strictly regulated by governments the Healthcare sector needs to ensure data security and data integrity is maintained for the life of the patient record. Where this information ultimately resides needs to be kept on an open data storage platform so that in 50+ years the information is still readable X-rays are a great example of a media that has stood the test of time and can still be read today.  Healthcare IT news article.


Never before have healthcare budgets been so short of funding. IT departments need to look for more affordable alternatives that deliver more for less.
