How has OpenStack transformed your organization?
Incarta’s first deployment of OpenStack was in 2019. After an extensive search and evaluation of cloud technology options and management partners, Incarta selected OpenStack and engaged Sardina Systems, a Founding Silver Member of the Open Infrastructure Foundation to provide support and management services for OpenStack. It was critical for Incarta to find a partner that understood the unique challenges of operating a “zero-downtime” cloud at scale in the context of driving down the total cost of compute, analytic, and storage services.
Sardina FishOS private cloud built on OpenStack has enabled Incarta to provide clinical and business users with flexible, secure, and reliable self-service cloud computing services. It has revolutionized Incarta’s ability to scale storage and compute high volumes of data, and to deliver clinical insights through augmented and predictive intelligence that could have only been imagined just a few years ago.
The partnership with Sardina Systems brought out the best of what OpenStack has to offer and has enabled Incarta to build an agile and high-reliability private cloud platform that preserves data sovereignty. All data storage and analytic systems are hosted on an infrastructure located in Australia and owned by Incarta. The platform is empowering the critical and sub-acute care sectors, medical emergency teams and hospitals, providing the local healthcare sector with reliable, data storage, elastic compute, and analytics.
The healthcare sector can now scale the stored data and provide data analytics in real-time, saving lives!
