Alcatel-Lucent and PVA, a Certified Business Partner, help healthcare providers address the challenges facing their data center network while delivering a high-quality user experience for real-time access to EHRs, rich collaboration between care providers that includes video, seamless integration of public cloud services like HIEs, and reduced data center costs.
This breakthrough solution starts with a unique blueprint for application fluent data center switching. This blueprint brings together three core innovations that together enable extremely scalable, high-performance and resilient data center fabric:
- The Virtual Network Profile (VNP)
- The Pod
- The Mesh
The Enterprise Data Center Switching Solution combines the market-leading OmniSwitch 10K Modular LAN Chassis, the OmniSwitch 6900 and the OmniSwitch 6850E to deliver:
- Low-latency, any-to-any 10 GbE connectivity, helping healthcare organizations meet the growing and evolving needs of the data center as they take on and expand use of electronic health records, digital imaging and virtual desktop environments
- Network virtualization, using the IEEE Multi-Chassis Link Aggregation (MC-LAG) specification and Virtual Chassis
- Applications managed as services with vNP, and with automated virtual machine mobility that is uniquely agnostic to the server virtualization platform in use
The management of this solution includes VitalSuite for end-to-end application performance visibility with OmniVista 2500 Network Management System and OmniVista 2500 Virtual Machine Manager for switch fabric management.
