DataCore Software to Present on How to Protect Data from Disasters and Achieve Much Faster Application Response Times at HIMSS16

DataCore, the leader in Parallel Powered Software-Defined Storage and Hyper-converged Virtual SAN solutions, today announced that it will be participating in the 2016 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, February 29 - March 4, 2016, at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. More than 40,000 healthcare industry professionals are expected to attend to discuss health IT issues and view innovative solutions designed to transform healthcare.

The skyrocketing costs to achieve continuous data availability, cope with exponential data growth, and provide timely data access rank among the three most pressing challenges facing healthcare IT organizations. Regulatory mandates such as HIPAA and HITECH compound the volume of data and the urgency to streamline storage practices.

Furthermore, due to the overwhelming amount of data generated from extensive medical imaging (e.g. high resolution, 3D color PACS images, etc.) as well as the transition to storage-intensive electronic health records, today there are an incredible amount of databases in the healthcare industry. DataCore SANsymphony offers a complete, centrally-managed software solution that can scale out across the entire storage infrastructure and stretch over multiple sites to pool and optimize capacity and provide the highest levels of business continuance protection. DataCore software is deployed at over 30,000 sites around the world and protects over 1,000 healthcare organizations and major medical centers, including those at NY Presbyterian Medical Center and Mount Sinai who overcame disaster scenarios with DataCore.

Additionally, DataCore's solutions dramatically improve productivity and lower the cost of ownership. DataCore's software and its parallel I/O technology has achieved the fastest response times in the industry and the world's best price-performance. The validated results prove it is possible to achieve anywhere from 3x to 10x faster application performance and run more workloads on the same platforms - which is a remarkable achievement in an industry where patients and providers rely on their critical applications and how rapidly they respond.

On March 2nd at 1:45 - 2:15 PM, Ibrahim Rahmani, director of product and solutions marketing at DataCore, will be presenting "Protecting Your Healthcare Applications and Data from a Disaster," (Session ID: KC77) at the Disaster Preparedness Center. Whether it's complying with healthcare regulations, deploying applications, or dealing with rapid growth, data is at the core of all operational and service functions, and therefore must always be accessible. During his presentation, Rahmani will discuss how to create multiple layers of protection for data to ensure it is always available, even when a disaster impacts the IT infrastructure. He will also cover DataCore's revolutionary parallel I/O technology and how it has shattered the world record for price-performance.

The annual HIMSS event helps health IT professionals find the right solutions for their organizations. Additional conference education sessions include preconference symposia on connected health, cybersecurity, interoperability, nursing informatics, patient engagement, physicians' IT and more. More than 300 peer-reviewed sessions, including workshops and roundtables, round out education offerings at HIMSS16.
