HP and BridgeHead Software team delivers a winning solution at Mary Rutan Hospital

As a community hospital, Mary Rutan Hospital seeks ways to optimize its limited resources while meeting stringent compliance regulations. As some of the hospital’s existing technologies were nearing end of life, the hospital’s growth demanded more robust capabilities. And that’s when the Mary Rutan IT team decided to take a new look at their current storage environments.  

 

Mary Rutan is an existing HP Storage customer and has been a BridgeHead Software customer for backup and StoreOnce_Icon_28220x160_29_tcm245_1675986_tcm245_1675985_tcm245-1675986.jpgdisaster recovery technology since 2012. BridgeHead, an HP AllianceOne Data Agile Partner, recently introduced a unique solution combining BridgeHead’s Healthcare Data Management (HDM) platform with HP StoreOnce VSA and HP StoreOnce Catalyst deduplication software. As an HP AllianceOne Partner, BridgeHead was able to leverage HP Labs to tightly integrate its HDM platform with HP StoreOnce Catalyst software, enabling direct backup to the HP StoreOnce VSA. The solution provides the maximum opportunity for deduplication while streamlining backup processes.

 

Mary Rutan now has a single enterprise solution for backing up its clinical and business applications. And thanks to the hardware-agnostic HP StoreOnce VSA, the hospital was able to use storage capacity on existing HP ProLiant DL380 Gen8 Servers for its backup rather than purchase additional hardware.

The hospital has dramatically reduced the amount of data requiring backup and after just two weeks in production, MEDITECH deduplication ratios were 20:1 and will only improve over time. Mary Rutan also expects to reduce raw storage capacity from 50 TB to 10 TB – alleviating a huge strain on storage capacity. And with Federated Deduplication, the Mary Rutan team can now run multiple backups simultaneously instead of one at a time, as they were doing. They can also now back up everything they want and believe that BridgeHead and HP are enabling a higher level of data protection for the hospital.

By reducing the amount of data being backed up through combining archiving with deduplication, the customer expects to reduce backup windows from days to hours.The hospital’s recovery-time objective (RTO) will be improved by this HP StoreOnce VSA and BridgeHead solution as it not only backs up individual files, but entire blocks of application data in their native format, allowing organizations to quickly rebuild the system in the event of an outage.

Cost-savings to the hospital are estimated to be in the 50%-to-70% range over time. By replacing previous outdated solutions with a more cost-effective virtual solution and reducing the amount of data being backed up and stored, the hospital is realizing the gains in human resource and operating efficiencies.
