Community Hospital – Speeds EHR and SQL Applications
“Our doctors and clinicians were losing too much time on basic tasks like waiting on medical images to load, or scanning images, or even just navigating from screen to screen within the application. The easy answer is to buy new server and storage hardware; however, that’s also a very expensive answer. When you’re a small hospital, you need to squeeze every last drop of performance out of your existing infrastructure. Since we don’t have the budget luxury of doing hardware refreshes every three years, we need to get at least five years or more from our storage backend,” said the IT Director at Community Medical Center.

For Undelete customers, we’ve compiled answers to some of the top frequently asked questions:
FAQ #1: Can I move my Undelete license from an older server to a newer one?
Absolutely! We’ve made it easy for you to transition your license to a new server. Simply uninstall Undelete from your older server, which will make the license key available again. Install it on your new server, and when prompted, add your license key. It’s that straightforward!
FAQ #2: Should I keep the Shadow Copy Service or snapshots enabled after installing Undelete on my servers?
Certainly! Undelete works hand-in-hand with Backups and Shadow Copies, complementing rather than replacing them. While Backups and Shadow Copies ensure the ability to restore complete volumes in case of catastrophic events, Undelete excels at effortlessly recovering individual files or different versions of edited files. It captures changes made since the last backup or shadow copy, providing a valuable solution for file-level recovery.
FAQ #3: Can I allow my users to recover their own deleted files from the server?
Absolutely! With the Undelete Client, included with your Undelete Server license at no additional charge, users can recover their own deleted files seamlessly. Learn more here.
