Epic data center upgrade without disruption
As the data volume feeding electronic health records (EHRs) continues to grow rapidly, scaling up data capabilities is often in order. Epic, for example, Epic requires beefier processors to support more intensive data workloads, which has many moving to x86 processors.
Upgrading an EHR data center with minimal disruption to its availability is the ideal.
In a webinar produced by DHI and Comport, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Health Practice Manager Aivars Aspite described how high-performance compute (HPC) can add blocks of compute and storage to existing Epic architecture in a non-disruptive way. Comport Field CTO Bill Flatley called the ability of HPC — using HPE’s Epic-validated Superdome Flex as an example — to scale up without migration a game changer.
With this HPC upgrade, architectures can process higher workloads up to 27 million GRefs for SMP architecture, and up to 85 million GRefs for ECP systems.
Register and view this 60-minute on demand webinar to learn more about how HPC can help scale up an Epic data center in a near seamless manner, while ensuring reliability, availability, and serviceability to protect critical Epic applications. Aspite and Flatley also highlight numerous other technical and operational benefits of HPC, as well as Comports related services, including affordability and customization. You’ll also learn more about HPE’s Epic testing and related validations for its Superdome Flex HPC and related hardware (e.g. servers and storage heads).
