In Germany, federal law requires that patient data is stored for a statistical life time. And very likely this applies to many other countries. Medical imaging is nowadays standard for diagnostics, prevention and therapy, is used more often due to an aging population, and at the same time file sizes are getting bigger and bigger. This generates a lot of data which must be stored for years to come.
The healthcare sector needs to accommodate this growing demand for storage while being faced with stagnating or decreasing budgets. Also, the storage demand grows at a pace which is hard to forecast.
For this use case SUSE Enterprise Storage is the perfect solution – it scales flexibly and on-demand and is less costly than traditional storage systems.
