Scale Up, Scale Out with Dell EMC PowerScale

sponsored by Dell Technologies

Dell EMC PowerScale is healthcare’s leading scale-out network-attached storage platform – trusted by organizations across the globe for its reliability and performance in managing the most challenging healthcare data storage use cases. What makes the technology stand out from the rest? PowerScale is based on a unique, industry-leading architecture and operating system, OneFS. In a fully digitized department, pathologists are generating nearly a petabyte of data annually – but the OneFS architecture makes PowerScale easy to manage while ensuring that required levels of performance, scalability, reliability, and security are always achieved.

In a recent (unpublished) survey conducted for Dell by The Pathologist, approximately 80 percent of respondents cited storage of whole-slide images as a major concern when adopting digital pathology. However, OneFS-powered clusters allow IT departments to eliminate storage silos, consolidate unstructured data, and store and analyze petabytes of file data. And, with up to 252 nodes in a cluster and clusters comprised of all-flash, hybrid, or archive nodes, digital pathology departments can scale both capacity and performance to meet the most demanding medical imaging storage needs – all without any additional IT burden.

We increased the ease and speed of accessing digitized pathology images, which helps improve patient outcomes and quality of research.

“Dell EMC PowerScale provides the scalability, performance, security, and simplified management to accelerate our digital pathology transformation. By modernizing with Dell Technologies, we increased the ease and speed of accessing digitized pathology images, which helps improve patient outcomes and quality of research,” says Nikolas Stathonikos, Principal Investigator of AI Development and Implementation at UMC Utrecht, Netherlands. 

With digital pathology’s potential to support research and help accelerate time to diagnosis, Dell Technologies has continued to work toward transforming lives by forming strategic partnerships with its customers – helping them to deliver better patient care. Based on its proven track record in the industry, healthcare organizations around the globe have put their trust in Dell Technologies and PowerScale to securely store patient data and make it available when needed.

“Now, we can enact better ways of doing things – not just do the same things better,” says Graham Evans Chief Information and Technology Officer and Senior Information Risk Owner at North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust. “With Dell EMC PowerScale, we’re ready for what’s next – today, tomorrow, and for years to come.”
