Emory Healthcare partners with Egenera and Fujitsu
"With Egenera’s Pan Manager on Fujitsu blade servers, I can run and add, replace and repair server capacity in minutes"
As the largest and most comprehensive healthcare system in Georgia, Emory Healthcare is in the business of making critical, life-saving decisions every day. Emory’s healthcare providers are constantly on the move – room-to-room, bed-to-bed, patient-to-patient — so increasing employee mobility and data / application availability to clinicians is extremely important.
Emory Healthcare needed to provide remote desktop services to enable employee mobility, provide remote and secure access via multiple devices, and lower desktop administrative costs by 50 percent.
The solution that Emory instituted included Citrix XenDesktop for desktop delivery with Fujitsu PRIMERGY BX900 blade servers in the data center and PAN Manager with vBlades for hosting and managing the back-end environment.
- Physical and virtual resources can be dynamically and rapidly provisioned to scale infrastructure and meet demand for desktop services.
- Failures are automatically recovered, including both local failures of hardware, OS and hypervisor as well as outage of the entire data center.
- Service levels are improved through quality of service management and automation.
