When attending various conferences and trade shows, I don’t often get time away from booth duty, but when I do, I like to discover the major trends and issues facing the industry, which can often be found by browsing through the various sessions and co-sponsored events.

There was a Tech Forum taking place at the HiMSS conference (which was recently cancelled) titled, “Addressing the Silver Tsunami.” A statistic that caught my eye was that “over the next 30 years, the number of people older than 65 in the United States will double from 40 million to 80 million.”

Imagine the innovations in healthcare that will be required to support this population, and its growing list of chronic health conditions such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

The early diagnosis and treatment of these common but chronic conditions is leading to this “Silver Tsunami” of the aging population. With modern technologies, that trend is only likely to continue. The use of higher resolution imaging systems, coupled with artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, are helping to improve detection at an earlier stage in the conditions’ progression.

All of this medical and research data produced by these imaging systems has to be managed, stored, and protected. It also needs to be quickly and easily accessible to all clinicians, when needed.

With Qumulo, healthcare organizations can easily keep up with massive data capacity growth, and effortlessly support the latest technologies available to speed and improve patient services.

Qumulo partners with world-leading technology partners, such as HPE and Fujitsu, as well as leading healthcare PACS providers, to provide best-in-class file storage solutions that can be deployed on-prem or in cloud environments. Qumulo’s Hybrid SSD/Disk Storage solution provides fast and cost-effective data storage to PACS solutions using unique caching algorithms that can predict next file requests and have those files immediately available using flash. Qumulo also provides all-NVMe options for medical research and DNA sequencing, where high performance and scalability is of key concern.

Our enterprise-proven file storage employs a modular, scale-out file storage architecture. Qumulo’s software-defined design offers flexibility as organizations can choose to utilize clusters of nodes made up of Qumulo hardware, or pre-qualified industry-standard hardware from HPE or Fujitsu.

Qumulo provides reliable data assurance and protection for all medical imaging, with built-in data protection through local and remote snapshots and continuous replication, ensuring data is preserved and always available.

Our software also provides built-in real-time analytics to provide insight across the entire file system, and enable storage administrators to easily monitor storage usage and performance trends. With this superior visibility, today’s modern healthcare organizations can gain control, and reduce overall operational and capital costs, by proactively managing current needs and better predicting future storage requirements.

If you’d like more information about how to unify and secure medical imaging and clinical data into a single, scalable file storage solution, contact us and request a demo. we would love to share how Qumulo can deliver a modern hybrid file storage solution that enables today’s healthcare organizations – like yours – to easily keep up with the growing data and image capacity requirements.
