Protecting and Managing Patient Data

Business Continuity and data resilience are crucial in today’s dynamic healthcare environments. Healthcare organizations expect fast, uninterrupted access to their DICOM and non-DICOM mission-critical data to ensure comprehensive insight for their patients.  In addition, as more and more diverse document and data types become integral to providing effective patient care, having the ability to manage those documents through one common platform has become increasingly important to healthcare organizations.
To meet this demand, T-Systems offers Data Protection for Enterprise Imaging powered by Hitachi Vantara. With a unified approach to data visibility and protection we deliver a comprehensive framework for Cloud Data Storage and Cloud Data Replication.  The collection of services – based on service level agreements (SLAs) and as a service consumption – was designed with ease of adoption for our customers.
Collectively, with multiple service offerings, the T-Systems Data Protection for Enterprise Imaging minimizes the complexity of design and deployment by using a standardized service catalog. Our cloud services can be consumed through a choice of hybrid or private cloud architectures – whichever best suits your business needs.

Cloud Data Storage

The Cloud Data Storage service provides customers with a service catalog based on six tiers of capacity modules ranging from as little as 25 terabytes to 4 petabytes.  
Multiple modules can be consumed individually or can be combined to support tens of petabytes of storage capacity.
  • Six tiers of capacity ranging from 25 terabytes to 4 petabytes.
  • Each tier includes a minimum commitment for monthly usage billing within that tier. As the next tier is reached, the next level of minimum commitment is reached.
  • Billing remains flexible above the minimum commitment based on monthly storage consumption.
  • If unexpected growth is required, you can jump immediately to any of the higher tiers.
  • Availability is provided at 99.95% and data durability is provided at 99.99999999%.

Cloud Data Replication

The Cloud Data Replication service provides customers with a service catalog based on a replicated copy of the data consumed within the Cloud Data Storage service.  
The billing model is also based on the Cloud Data Storage service to allow customers to augment their storage service with minimal added cost.
  • Six tiers of capacity.
  • Provides a replicated copy to the T-Systems Cloud to ensure high availability without the cost of managing that data copy yourself.
  • Each tier includes an incremental minimum commitment modeled after the Cloud Data Storage service.
  • Availability is provided at 99.99%.
  • As with Cloud Data Storage, support for DICOM and non-DICOM data.
