products & innovations Commvault Clinical Archive brings modern data management of clinical data to healthcare market Commvault has launched Commvault Clinical Archive to modernise the way healthcare organisations manage, migrate, and share clinical data. As hospitals and healthcare providers look to control costs and improve patient care, centralising information management using Commvault Clinical Archive breaks down data silos, reduces storage costs and complexity, enables better data sharing, and eliminates the costs of maintaining and supporting legacy applications. Commvault developed a solution built on the Commvault Data Platform and Laitek’s Semperdata platform to assure data migration and enable easy clinical data management for healthcare providers. Through this integration, Commvault Clinical Archive becomes the first solution that can address data management in both the clinical and business sides of healthcare in a single platform. As a result, providers can decommission legacy PACS solutions into a single data management platform, while making legacy studies accessible to new PACS solutions and available for bulk migration. Furthermore, Commvault Clinical Archive can be used as a vendor neutral repository for all clinical information that traditional VNAs strive to achieve. The hardware independent nature of Commvault’s platform supports a full range of cloud, on premise, physical and virtual environments, to fit each healthcare organisation’s business and patient care needs.

The new IBM Cloud Object Storage will combine technology from the recently acquired object storage company Cleversafe with the IBM Cloud to provide enterprises with fast, flexible, hybrid cloud storage-as-a-service solutions. IBM will provide enterprises a choice of multiple APIs and the option to store massive amounts of data efficiently on-premise, on the IBM Cloud, or across the two in a hybrid environment, with the same level of reliability and consistency of technology across all deployment models. IDC estimates that 80 per cent of new cloud applications are predicted to be Big Data intensive. Cleversafe object storage technology enables data intensive clients to scale to exabytes of storage, or billions of gigabytes. IBM Cloud Object Storage will be available in a variety of licensing models, including perpetual, subscription, or consumption. With such diverse licensing options, customers will be able to buy storage capacity with the flexibility to move data between the enterprise and the cloud as business needs change.

This is the first in the range of ProLabs’ copper products – 2.5/5G Copper SFP transceivers for the data centre and G.Fast copper transceivers for the telecom industry, which interface with a standard Ethernet switch, will also be launched later in the year. The 10GBase-T SFP+ transceiver pushes the limits of copper based technology, providing 10 gigabits of data transfer over distances of 30m or less, and replaces the need for direct attach cables that have limitations up to 10m. For its launch, the 10G copper transceiver will be compatible with Cisco, Dell, Brocade, Arista, Juniper, Extreme and IBM. ProLabs products allow the interoperability of over 50 OEM providers without affecting warranties; all ProLabs products are 100 per cent tested, designed to comply with industry standard MSA (Multi-Source Agreements) and come with lifetime warranties.
