Harvard Medical School teaching hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is renowned for excellence in patient care, biomedical research, teaching, and community service. BIDMC wanted to migrate core clinical applications to stable, secure operating environment and wanted to create new disaster-recovery system with higher availability. For this BIDMC deployed Red Hat. BIDMC had begun using Red Hat for the hospital's utility services, including mail exchange, spam filtering, and DNS. Using Red Hat Global File System and Cluster Suite, Hurst and his team are creating a multi-tiered architecture that separates the network, applications, and database layers within one stack.
