Integration with EMC’s leading technology enables BridgeHead to continue to bring best-of-breed solutions to the marketplace for healthcare customers
WOBURN, Mass. and ASHTEAD, UK – August 02, 2016 – BridgeHead Software, a leader in healthcare data management, announced its integration with EMC XtremIO, the company’s leading all-flash storage array. For more than 16 years, BridgeHead has collaborated with EMC to bring the best technologies to its healthcare customers worldwide, and BridgeHead will continue to support new emerging technologies that peak in the market. EMC’s fastest-growing product of all time, XtremIO, helped EMC reach more than 40 percent market share in Q4 2015 and topped the all-flash storage array market in just nine months after its 2013 debut – notably for its ease of use and unique architecture that delivers consistent and predictable performance at scale.
“The digital landscape of healthcare continues to evolve and, as such, stakeholders are in constant need to leverage cutting-edge technologies that are bigger, better, faster and smarter to remain competitive. And the industry-wide surge continues toward all-flash storage solutions as customers are looking to consolidate, accelerate and modernize their data center infrastructures,” said Steve Matheson, vice president of product at BridgeHead Software. “As a company that is focused exclusively on healthcare, we fully understand these issues and align ourselves with innovative partners that bring superior technologies to market.”
BridgeHead RAPid™ Data Protection provides healthcare organizations optimized data protection and recovery for any application. Through this integration, customers of EMC XtremIO can archive data to the flash storage array, offering significant performance and speed improvements over using traditional disk-based storage methods. This provides a very quick, robust backup and, more importantly, recovery solution – providing peace of mind to hospitals safe in the knowledge that if their critical applications go down for any reason, they have the ability to return to operational status in short order and with potentially minimum disruption – which means patient care continues to be delivered and business continues to function.
“Users of MEDITECH EHR can benefit enormously from this best-of-breed combo to ensure this mission critical application – that essentially runs the hospital – is properly protected and recoverable in the event of outage, corruption, data loss or disaster,” added Matheson. “And although we have this capability for MEDITECH, we are vendor and application agnostic, allowing us the flexibility to easily apply this to other healthcare and business applications across the healthcare spectrum.”
