ASHAWAY, R.I. -- greenBytes, a developer of next-generation data storage solutions founded by digital cardiology pioneers from Heartlab Incorporated, today announced Cypress for Healthcare IT, the most efficient data storage system available on the market. Cypress is an ultra high-efficiency NAS (network attached storage) appliance for archiving long-term, persistent data, often found in hospital data storage environments. Cypress combines its industry-leading software storage operating system with Sun Microsystems award-winning Sun Fire X4540 storage server to create the densest, highest-performing storage platform for medical records storage.
Cypress brings together real-time data de-duplication and MAID (massive array of idle disks) technology to achieve dramatic reductions in the space, power, time and money required to store persistent data. Unlike other de-duplication and MAID products, Cypress is built on top of the Sun Fire platform, providing for tremendous economy 50% of the acquisition cost, yet no compromise on performance up to twice as fast as other storage platforms.
Ideal for the complicated data storage topologies of large health care institutions, Cypress can be used in PACS, Backup Operations, Disaster Recovery, Document Management and Virtual Machine consolidation applications. De-duplication and MAID features reduce hospital operating costs further by reducing the storage footprint and saving tens of thousands of dollars annually on electrical costs.
Our healthcare customers (at Heartlab) were dealing with an explosion of digital information from their advanced imaging systems, said Robert Petrocelli, CTO and co-founder of greenBytes and Heartlab. Understanding our customers problems has always been essential in providing solutions as the healthcare industry moved from analog to digital. Cypress meets the uniquely demanding storage needs of the healthcare industry - where it is not uncommon to store 10 to 40 TB per year, with a seven-year retention requirement.
