Backup Technology Case Study: Next Generation Radiology
Next Generation Radiology (NGR) is a practice that has 4 full service locations in New York state. As a radiology practice, NGR is on the cutting edge of technology using the latest in PACS/RIS technology and load balanced VPN connectivity between all four locations. Being involved in the radiology industry, government compliance and good business practices mandate that Next Generation Radiology needed to have a solid backup and disaster recovery program. They needed an overall solution that included both hardware and software that would quickly and cost effectively backup all of their data company wide. NGR implemented the Idealstor 4 Bay Backup Appliance and iBac Data Protection Software to backup their medical imaging servers and other critical data. As a part of this project NGR replaced their Backup Exec with Idealstor's own iBac 4.0. This solution provided NGR with a single source vendor for their backup hardware and backup software needs. iBac 4.0 is high speed backup software that backs up data in its native format allowing restores to be simple drag and drop. Next Generation Radiology met all of their requirements by implementing Idealstor and Ibac. It is a cost effective backup, has fast local disk based backups and site to site backup and replication of data - all to provide the exact security NGR needs.
