The firms said they will integrate NetApp’s StorageGRID software with two Iron Mountain medical data archiving products: the digital record center for medical images and its vendor neutral counterpart.
The companies hope the new cloud solution will offer healthcare organizations a “pay-as-you-go” model that allows quick data recovery after disasters hit. The solutions aims to free IT staff from managing internal storage systems.
“The explosion of clinical, patient, and imaging data and shrinking budgets have boxed many healthcare organizations into a corner, straining their storage capacity and IT resources to the limit,” said Ken Rubin, Iron Mountain senior vice president and general manager for healthcare. “The answer is cloud-based storage and archiving.”
