This is the most innovative time in healthcare.
The link between quality and technology has never been stronger.

Providers, payers, and life sciences organizations understand that IT networks, data storage and data management have become more critical than ever. Collaboration is no longer an option, it is a necessity.

With research and development relying on High-Performance Computing (HPC) and low-latency networks to advance biomedical and science education, bottlenecks can no longer be tolerated. The data must be analyzed faster with a much higher level of detail.

As the healthcare industry transforms quickly from a model of volume to a model of value, the integrity of data and data exchange become the lifeblood of high reliability, quality, and efficiency.

Brocade networking solutions can help healthcare organizations meet their IT infrastructure goals by providing:

  • High performance, reliability, and availability required to support anywhere, anytime data access
  • Simplified, automated end-to-end networks for campus and data center environments
  • Scalable networks for massive growth of data and devices
  • Efficiency through reduced power, cooling, and real estate costs
  • Flexibility and choice through a vast partner ecosystem, offering solutions based on open standards

Brocade networks have proven their ability to fulfill the technical requirements of healthcare organizations ranging from care delivery to insurers to life sciences. Brocade solutions and professional services can help organizations meet the ever-changing requirements for the research, development, and deployment of emerging healthcare applications.
