Storage Newsletter, December 16, 2016
ClearSky Data, Inc., provider of a storage network that manages the entire enterprise data lifecycle, announced that Partners HealthCare, Inc. is using its service for elastic, on-demand storage for Splunk, SQL and VMware data.
One of the nation's biomedical research organizations and a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, Partners HealthCare has deployed ClearSky Data's managed service to reduce its traditional, on-premises storage footprint; maintain its performance and security standards; tap into the network's inherent data protection and DR capabilities; and harness the agility and economics of the cloud.
The Partners HealthCare system is the largest in Massachusetts and includes multiple community and specialty hospitals, as well as a physician network and numerous other entities. Like most large enterprises, the organization wanted to consume storage in a more elastic way and reduce the huge costs that come with managing growing data. This is a pressing need for enterprises that must make primary data accessible to users at low latency, no matter where they reside, and remain accessible even during an outage. ClearSky Data's service is solving this need and delivering a hybrid service that makes the economics and scale of the cloud a reality for enterprise data.
