Working with IBM, a hospital in Asia Pacific gained a data protection solution that meets users' data availability requirements,
scales on demand to support a growing warehouse of patient data and medical images, and simplifies data migration and
data recovery tasks.
The benefits of the solution include a 50% reduction in backup window; restores individual Microsoft Exchange objects in minutes;
restores systems in under 10 minutes.
Read the complete case study to see how this Asian Pacific hospital gained peace of mind with virtualixed data protection from IBM.

VCU Medical Center is one of the leading academic medical centers in the United States and the only academic medical center in central Virginia, offering state-of-the art care in more than 200 specialty areas along with Level 1 trauma care.
For VCU Health System, technology provides the foundation for transforming clinical services and delivering patient care. However, with a heterogeneous storage infrastructure and no single user interface, the team’s three storage engineers faced significant hurdles in managing growing data volumes and recovering data quickly when needed.
Working with IBM, the health system implemented a virtualized, scalable and high-performance storage infrastructure that improves service levels, reduces costs, mitigates risks and supports an increasing amount of data (growing at more than 20 percent annually).
Reduced data recovery time; Process of migrating data has been shortened with greater success probability; Standardization and consolidation of storage systems has reduced the storage footprint and decreased data center temperatures from 43 to 68 degrees; lower cooling and energy cost; Reduced storage spending
“With Tivoli Storage Manager, we can set multiple recovery point objectives and the XIV allows us to keep multiple snapshots of the data without impacting performance. So we can have copies and copies and copies of the data where we couldn’t before.”
—Greg Johnson, CTO and Director, Technology & Engineering Services, VCU Health System
