Healthcare and life sciences are about connecting solutions with information and tools to provide for better outcomes. Healthcare organizations, like all large organizations, want to streamline how they operate and maintain their HIT ecosystem.
One of the best ways to connect stored data is to have platforms and data lakes that can scale and have consistent performance. This demand is driving the growth of the role of IT in healthcare. Individual vendors’ solutions often lead to siloed approaches to infrastructure, as different applications use different hardware and software solutions. With Dell Technologies and the VxRail platform, however, multiple common solutions can be united.
Mercy Ships is an excellent example of a healthcare organization that uses VxRail HCI for IT transformation, for diverse applications that manage safety and business functions such as logistics, and for an onboard K–12 school that is attended by the staff’s children.

PACS applications can access additional storage through Fibre Channel (FC), iSCSI, or NFS from the VxRail system. These different storage solutions can provide capabilities to store large amounts of data and can offer other data services that software-defined storage, such as VMware vSAN, might not provide. Connecting a VxRail system to an additional storage solution can provide capacity for both short-term and long-term requirements. Dell Technologies understands that your capacity requirements might extend beyond what the VxRail solution provides. Large amounts of data might call for additional storage, such as the capacity offered by the Dell EMC PowerScale system. PowerScale storage can also help support applications with object storage capabilities.
Dell Technologies provides solutions that properly secure data on an efficient platform that embraces EHR, e-prescriptions, PACS, and VDI. VxRail systems simplify virtualized environment management and life cycle management, enabling IT to provide better health outcomes.
