Choose wisely you must

Tony Huynh

YodaA wise customer once told me…

Business-critical applications have an impact on your operation and customer engagements.  Mission-critical applications can have an impact on your safety, health, and well-being. Choose wisely your infrastructure partner. This customer was a VP of infrastructure for a regional chain of medical providers. His team was responsible for supporting hundreds of medical staff and close to 15,000 patients, delivering both business- and mission-critical applications to this diverse group of consumers.

Many customers deploy Epic, an electronic health record system (EHR) database for the healthcare industry, serving midsize and large medical groups, hospitals, and integrated healthcare organizations.

Front-line medical staff enter patient information into the Epic database, where it is stored for future patient care reference and for analytics.

Together with our long-standing partner Brocade, we have developed a new NetApp Verified Architecture (NVA) specifically to support high-reliability healthcare organizations. The architecture is designed for the next decade’s transition to value-based, accountable care and to help IT professionals deploy Epic. The NetApp and Brocade solutions meet the strict service level objectives that healthcare IT teams require.

What is NVA?

NetApp Verified Architecture describes systems and solutions that are designed, tested, and documented to facilitate and to improve customers’ deployments. These designs incorporate a wide range of technologies and products into a portfolio of solutions that NetApp has developed to meet our customers’ business needs.

This NVA, Epic on modern SAN, offers  a solution that modernizes your SAN storage with Gen7 64Gb NVMe/FC and cloud connectivity options. These options can give your company the fastest cloud-ready solution for mission- critical virtualized Epic EHR workloads.

Test results are provided for validated design and configuration recommendations for Epic EHR deployments of any size.

For more than 10 years, NetApp has been a proud partner of Epic, working together to drive next-generation technology while also meeting the ever-changing challenges of healthcare and exceeding the high standards set by Epic Honor Roll.
