Healthcare Provider Saved $1 Million on Data Center

Saint Joseph Health System (SJHS) is an integrated healthcare delivery system sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange. As part of the strategy, SJHS decided to transform its California data center, which is used for regional as well as enterprise applications. SJHS found its solution in the Cisco Nexus family of data center switches. Rack-optimized servers connect over Gigabit Ethernet to a Cisco Nexus 2000 Fabric Extender at the top of the rack, which acts as a patch panel. The fabric extenders connect to Cisco Nexus 5010 switches in the middle of the row, which connect over 10 Gigabit Ethernet to dual Cisco Catalyst 6509 Switches at the network core.
