Public clouds offer healthcare providers scalable, flexible data storage. But without the proper foundation and plan, adopting multiple public clouds can add management overhead and security headaches for your IT department. Instead of relying solely on public clouds, healthcare providers can combine public and private clouds to create a “hybrid” cloud. This enables you to store your data within a private cloud and utilize public clouds for scalability. And, in a multi-cloud environment, you can use one cloud for disaster recovery, another for processing PACS data, and a third for backups.
With Dell Technologies Cloud Storage for Multi-Cloud, remote sites like hospitals and healthcare facilities can send data via array-based replication to a data lake in Faction’s cloud-adjacent facility. File-based data is presented to all clouds simultaneously via CIFS (a widely used, industry-standard file protocol). Cloud healthcare data can then be analyzed using cloud analytic services and compute instances across multiple clouds.
