Gelderse Vallei Hospital replace an aging storage platform with FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS

"I couldn’t believe that what Fujitsu was proposing was possible, but we ran the tests and were amazed by the performance on the number of discs. It was clearly the best solution at the best price and had the references to prove it."

Vincent te Koppele, Head of ICT, Ziekenhuis Gelderse Vallei
