Jupiter Medical Center chooses HP to support application growth

18 Apr 2013 Palo Alto - Jupiter Medical Center in Palo Alto has deployed an efficient and scalable HP Converged Infrastructure to accelerate medical application delivery to improve patient care and support growth. Jupiter Medical Center, a community-based, not-for-profit health centre, maintains an extensive IT infrastructure to support electronic medical records, picture archiving and communications systems. To remain competitive and comply with new health IT regulations, Jupiter Medical Center needed a data centre solution that would simplify access to critical medical applications and information, while preparing for the future.

After evaluating competitive offerings, including those from EMC and Cisco, Jupiter Medical Center chose an HP Converged Infrastructure for improved reliability, scalability and ease of management. The new HP Converged Infrastructure includes HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage, a simple, scalable and flexible storage infrastructure; the HP BladeSystem enclosure with HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) server blades for optimized performance and power efficiency; and HP Virtual Connect technology to simplify network management.

“As a non-profit in the competitive and highly regulated health care industry, we're under constant pressure to effectively deliver world-class patient care with an increasingly smaller budget", stated Stephen Meyer, director, Technical Services, Jupiter Medical Center. "With an HP Converged Infrastructure, we are faster to market, we've improved system uptime as well as reliability, and we can more readily comply with government healthcare regulations."

The HP 3PAR StoreServ 10000 Storage system, deployed as part of the HP Converged Infrastructure solution, improved system reliability, increased performance and simplified management. In fact, since deploying the HP storage system, Jupiter Medical Center's infrastructure has not experienced any downtime. In addition to faster data retrieval and superior ease of management compared to the centre's previous storage solution, the non-profit has eliminated the six-figure cost for storage maintenance by consolidating three storage area networks into a single system. As a result, Jupiter Medical Center has significantly reduced data centre floor space, as well as power and cooling costs. Leveraging HP 3PAR StoreServ storage, Jupiter Medical Center can now quickly deliver to patients quality health care applications, such as the McKesson Horizon Suite of products.

To ensure consistent availability and accessibility of essential medical records applications, Jupiter Medical Center uses secure clinical virtual desktop images. The centre's virtualization environment - which includes VMware vSphere 5 and Citrix XenApp application virtualization technology - is supported with an HP BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure and HP ProLiant BL460c Gen8 server blades. Jupiter Medical Center's environment now delivers 10 times the compute capacity of its previous system, helping to cut costs while boosting performance.

Jupiter Medical Center also deployed the HP Virtual Connect Flex-10/10D Module, which includes a network configuration that enables the organization to select a profile for automatically adding new blades, eliminating the need to cable and manage these systems individually. This enables Jupiter Medical Center to rapidly and efficiently deliver new applications, using less power consumption.

Throughout Jupiter Medical Center's transition to an HP Converged Infrastructure, HP Technology Services provided consulting expertise for infrastructure design, implementation and migration with support services. HP Technology Services also identified ways to minimize risk and ensure systems were on-line as scheduled to prevent disruption to patient care.
