NHS Tayside Consolidates Data Center With Help From Sun
Source: Sun Microsystems
NHS Tayside provides primary care and secondary healthcare services to a population of approximately 400,000 in the Tayside region of Scotland. The company's challenge was to accommodate rapid growth of information to minimize risks of catastrophic data loss. They wanted to support heterogeneous hardware and software environment and reduce cost and complexity of IT infrastructure. Sun and business partner Access Computing helped NHS Tayside consolidate and upgrade its data storage and server infrastructure using Sun StorEdge storage hardware and Sun Fire servers. Sun StorEdge software provides reliable data protection, while Sun Java Enterprise System software is used for access control and communication and collaboration. Tayside receives service under its SunSpectrum Platinum Service Plan.
