Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Healthcare


The healthcare industry continuously innovates to deliver increasingly personalized patient care, which increasingly relies on IT support. IT must transform to meet evolving business needs: doctors are now a mobile workforce, new treatments require new applications, and cyber-attacks are a growing menace. Meanwhile, most of the IT budget is spent maintaining legacy infrastructure.


HCI powered by vSAN can help by lowering TCO, securing data with FIPS 140-2 validated encryption and increasing performance for demanding healthcare applications.

vSAN Healthcare Customers 


“Hyperconvergence powered by vSAN offers many capabilities for a solution that can drive down cost and help right-size it the first time. As the client grows, you just add another node to that stack. The cost drops to a fraction, and that’s very impactful when the bottom line is so small.”


Josh Rodgers, Former Director of Infrastructure

Baystate Health

“Based on the requirements of up-time, integration of all the different siloes and essentially the seamlessness of the architecture, VMware is, as far as we’re concerned, the proper choice – pretty much the most solid approach to hyperconvergence.”
