This paper outlines how a user can benefit from a virtualized, multi-tier Synapse environment from FUJIFILM Medical Systems USA (Fujifilm) that is configured with VMware Site Recovery Manager. Healthcare organizations that have deployed Fujifilm's Synapse applications depend heavily on the information, processes and availability of the environment, even in the case of a disaster. However, the complexity and distributed nature of these applications can make implementation and maintenance of traditional disaster recovery solutions expensive and complicated. VMware virtualization technology helps overcome the challenge of achieving cost effective disaster recovery. This paper introduces an approach to disaster recovery that uses VMware Site Recovery Manager and block-based SAN storage replication to provide an effective availability solution for mission-critical Fujifilm Synapse deployments.
