Leuven University Hospital Integrates PACS Radiology and Enterprise Data With NetApp Unified Storage
With more than 1,900 beds and almost 8,000 staff members, Leuven University Hospital is one of the largest healthcare providers in Europe. The hospital has four widely dispersed sites, three of which can be accessed as a single site via the hospital's LAN. The challenge was to consolidate storage and servers, ensure business continuance, and simplify access to patient data. The hospital deployed multitiered NetApp storage to support medical imaging and business systems. Primary storage systems are mirrored and backup copies are stored at a remote datacenter.
