To deliver high quality patient care and also to comply with strict standards and regulations, the healthcare industry must have full control and visibility over critical data like electronic medical records. They must also maintain uptime and availability to support emerging technologies. For these reasons, many in the healthcare industry are turning to private hosting for their workloads within colocation spaces.
In this white paper, Siemon explains how Wellstar Health Systems used advanced data center solutions to expand within their leased colocation space. By increasing fiber densities, the solutions support increased connectivity and migration to higher speed applications that meet the large healthcare provider’s changing needs, in a way that doesn’t require additional rack space.
The paper first outlines how Wellstar enhanced security, compliance, and reliability by migrating workloads from their on-premises data center to two colocation facilities operated by QTS. The paper then outlines how they were able to increase density within those leased colocation spaces through the use of a flexible, high-density fiber optic cabling system.
