WHITE PAPER

  • Storage Assessments
  • Storage & Server Migrations
  • Hewlett Packard Enterprise SAN HealthCheck
  • Medical Archives
  • Virtualization
  • Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery
  • Installation
  • Storage complexity can be an ROI killer. Modern healthcare environments require premiere security to protect patient data, comply with HIPAA regulations, and avoid data breaches.  Storage must support high-availability systems with peak performance. Only HPE 3PAR StoreServ eliminates fragmented and complex silos with a single interoperable set of Tier-1 data services across midrange, enterprise, and performance optimized all-flash arrays.

    We offer two Storage Assessments:

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise NinjaThin Storage Assessment

    NinjaThin is a non-intrusive audit of your current storage infrastructure, at no cost. NinjaThin supports HPE’s “Get Thin” Guarantee: a 50% reduction in storage capacity requirements when you move from legacy storage to HPE 3PAR StoreServ. You’ll receive a detailed storage efficiency report containing an audit of your current storage, utilization ratios and stranded capacity, and recommended TCO saving strategies in capacity, power, data center and floor space.

    Unstructured Data Assessment

    The burgeoning growth of unstructured data in distributed IT environments increases expensive primary storage, for files that may be of low – or no – value to the clinical enterprise. Storage of this data on storage pools with SLAs designed for high-value data increases costs unnecessarily, prolongs backup operations and can impact retention policies. Also, with e-discovery laws, keeping data longer than required can introduce unnecessary liability.

    Suitable for even the most complex unstructured storage environments, this Assessment is a deep dive into disk utilization, file age, space consumption by file type, duplication and more. The resulting data is the basis for a roadmap for the development and implementation of a formal Unstructured Data Management strategy. This roadmap is used to make informed decisions about storage usage, forecasting hardware/software acquisitions, meeting backup windows, aligning back-up and recovery operations with business requirements, and developing appropriate data retention policies.

  • Sometime you must migrate – from third-party storage, from older HPE storage to 3 PAR, or from older servers or virtualized environments to new.  Comport ensures a smooth transition, so you can take advantage of the cost, performance, scalability, reduced footprint, energy savings and enhanced functionality available with modern storage and servers.

  • Our SAN Health Check quickly determines if your HPE SAN environment is up-to-date with the latest supported firmware, driver and software versions, and conforms to best practices.  We also provide a managed service to keep your SAN’s current, along with staff augmentation as required to ensure your storage network is tuned and performing optimally.

  • For many years Comport has worked with the HPE Medical Archive Solution/NetApp StorageGrid.  We are experts and can configure, install and support your medical image archives, document imaging, video images, and electronic medical records providing necessary redundancy, encryption and scalability. You may also be interested in our managed service, to handle ongoing support.

  • Virtualization brings huge efficiencies and is a core competency of Comport.  The ability to replicate servers instantly, provide redundant systems for immediate fail-over, and provision required hardware as needed creates an environment that is protected and cost-effective.  We work with VMware or Hyper-V environments to:

    • Develop a consolidation assessment (blueprint) to virtualize current capacity.
    • Install and implement your entire VMWare or Hyper-V environment.
    • Perform a Virtualization HealthCheck to ensure best practices, for a stable environment.
    • Upgrade or expand your environment.
    • Plan your private or hybrid cloud strategies and build out implementations.
  • What’s the cost to your business if you are down for a week, a day or just hours?  More importantly, what is the risk to your patients?  With the proliferation of EHRs, CPOE, medication systems and clinical rules processing, tolerance for downtime is measured in minutes.  As part of an upgrade or refresh we can assess your environment, analyze your requirements and recommend ways to make your IT more robust including array and host-based synchronous and asynchronous data replication between primary and DR sites.

  • As you roll out new systems or applications, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Installation and Implementation Services help you get there faster, with less impact on your staff and less risk to your patients.  As an HPE ServiceOne partner Comport makes sure that your HPE servers, storage, cloud and virtualization are successfully designed and implemented.
