Independent Review Organization Builds Private Cloud
Source: Cisco Systems
A national independent review organization, ExamWorks, Inc. matches clients in law firms and insurance companies with medical experts for trial testimony, physical examinations, and peer reviews. To conduct business on a national scale, ExamWorks needed centralized backups, disaster recovery, and the ability to comply with regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). They also needed an efficient way to quickly integrate the IT systems from all of the acquired companies. ExamWorks built a private cloud to host its main business application and virtual desktops, using the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) B200 M1 and Cisco Nexus 5010 Switch. They chose the Cisco UCS because it is built for Virtualization.
