NHS Blood & Transplant (NHSBT) wanted to provide a better experience to donors and increase visibility of blood supply and improve contingency plans. The challenge was to consolidate and simplify the central system with minimal business disruption and ensure high uptime. NHSBT implemented HP Integrity servers in OpenVMS cluster configuration at two separate data centres with multiple layers of redundancy and moved from three regional centres with isolated databases to one national system.
