CHRISTUS Health needed to achieve performance improvements without an expensive and disruptive rip-and-replace of the existing SAN storage infrastructure. “We are constantly scrutinizing our budget, so anything that helps us avoid buying more storage hardware for performance or host-related infrastructure is a huge benefit,” says Tom Swearingen, manager, infrastructure services, with San Antonio-based CHRISTUS Health.
Before deploying Condusiv’s software, CHRISTUS had plans to purchase roughly $2 million in storage hardware to increase the performance of its MEDITECH application. However, after deploying our acceleration software across 70+ servers, performance problems were eliminated overnight and CHRISTUS Health was able to avoid a costly hardware upgrade to its data center.
Swearingen continues, “Condusiv didn’t just double the productivity of our patient care without adding new hardware, it enabled us to save on the bottom line and reclaim a storage budget that had ballooned since we virtualized.”
