Cerner Selects Nirvanix To Deliver New Enterprise Cloud Storage Service For Health Care Industry

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Nirvanix today announced that Cerner (Nasdaq: CERN), a nearly $2 billion health care solutions provider, will deploy as part of their Cerner Skybox solutions, a new on-demand managed storage service offering based on a Nirvanix Private Cloud Storage solution. The Cerner Skybox Storage™ service enables Cerner's clients to consolidate PACs, radiology, lab, clinical systems and patient records in a secure enterprise-grade cloud storage environment.  


Cerner has initially deployed a multi-petabyte scalable private node of cloud storage located within its data centers, fully maintained as a service by Nirvanix. The Nirvanix Cloud File System™ enables Cerner to provide usage-based pricing for its health care clients and a true global namespace that ensures instant content access regardless of location.

With the Nirvanix private cloud storage solution, Cerner can offer its clients enterprise-grade cloud storage designed from the ground up for optimal data availability. This solution is capable of supporting millions of users and billions of objects, with built-in software capabilities that provide for continuous data consistency and a self-healing cloud that performs continuous data integrity checks on all stored files and automatically repairs corrupt files.

"Our objective is to optimize processes and enable the use and sharing of information across the health care industry," said Tony Linville, vice president of Infrastructure Services at Cerner. "To that end, we are positioned to lead the way in the adoption of cloud storage in the health care industry. We believe that the economics and elasticity of cloud storage based on Nirvanix technologies will provide our clients a secure solution which eases collaboration and drives down costs."

"Cerner is a thought leader and a visionary in the healthcare sector," said Dave Vellante, President of IT think tank "This large-scale deployment is yet another strong indicator that cloud adoption is going increasingly mainstream. While many traditional healthcare providers are struggling to figure out their cloud storage strategies, Cerner is driving innovation in the sector and focusing on delivering trusted cloud solutions today."

"The benefits of the cloud are spreading across a multitude of industries," said Scott Genereux, President and CEO, Nirvanix. "Our cloud storage technology is ideally suited for the health care industry as it was designed from the ground up to accommodate massive files, which is critical for the unstructured data that is so prevalent in this space."

Nirvanix cloud storage technology also helps Cerner protect and secure personally identifiable health care information, ensuring that all files stored in the cloud are obscurificated as Nirvanix software de-identifies each physical file, removing the file name, owner and type.
