NetApp, a data-centric software company, announced that it has been selected by Narayana Health to modernize its IT systems.
NetApp will help Narayana Health to optimize storage and data management efficiencies across locations thereby helping advance medical care in India.
Narayana Health deployed NetApp technology solutions to store and process patient records and images. The resulting records management system, Athma, captures, stores, and retrieves networks across 15 sites. The system enables medical staff and patients to access their entire medical history in a few seconds.
“NetApp comes with a unique approach to data management. Storing data on NetApp is much faster compared to the other solution providers. It offered easy infrastructure management solutions to our engineers,” Ramu Manjunath, Core Infrastructure Head, Narayana Health, said.
“With our legacy and experience in data management, and our core technology offerings, we are happy to contribute to the changing healthcare landscape in India,” Puneet Gupta, managing director & VP India / SAARC, NetApp India Marketing and Services, said.
The centralized storage system for data and applications is built on NetApp and is made available on the cloud. NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP software makes storage easy to manage. Two fully replicated data centers, one in central India and the other in south India, are running backup and recovery using Azure NetApp Files and NetApp file services.
The Narayana Health hospital system plans to expand: It plans to increase the number of locations and add more clinical services to its 60-plus specialties. Cloud Volumes ONTAP will provide the ability to manage optimization, and tools such as the NetApp Active IQ Digital Advisor will help the hospital system manage and optimize costs.
