“VMware Cloud Foundation means care is no longer limited to a paper set of notes. With electronic patient records, we have the ability to make care better for every patient, every day.”


Mark Hutchinson, Chief Digital and Information Officer, Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust wanted to build an electronic patient record system as part of its five-year strategic plan. To do this, it needed to modernize its data center platform and migrate its legacy IT systems to the public cloud. With support from VMware partner, LIMA Networks, the hospital implemented VMware Cloud Foundation as a secure, reliable hybrid cloud platform. It now uses VMware vSAN for storage, VMware NSX Data Center for networking, and VMware vRealize Suite for management and automation. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the trust was able to quickly facilitate remote working, as VMware Cloud Foundation provided the platform to give staff remote access so they could carry on working from their homes.
