Dell EMC Converged Platforms – Promedica (German)
ProMedica had grown rapidly over the past 15 years through the integration of smaller hospital systems and the opening of specialty clinics and facilities. This led to costly IT sprawl, with up to 12 data centers.
Many hospitals and clinics had their own electronic health record (EHR) solutions, making it slow and inefficient to share patient and other critical data. In addition, ProMedica’s IT infrastructure was supplied by multiple vendors.
ProMedica initially invested in two Dell EMC Vblock® Systems 340. Then, to implement its new system-wide Epic EHR and support growth and stability at scale, ProMedica created a private cloud based on two Vblock® Systems 540 with Dell EMC all-flash XtremIO storage arrays.
