Why hospital data centers are moving to the cloud [www.healthcaredive.com]
Hospitals are asking how to get rid of their data centers because of the associated costs, Medstar CTO Ed Fisher said.As hospital data center infrastructures age and resources shrink, IT leaders are increasingly looking to the cloud to meet their storage needs. Not only is it cheaper than investing in upgrades and replacements of existing hardware and software, but it can add a level of security, especially in disaster-prone areas. The trend has some wondering if hospitals will still have physical data centers in the future or whether they will go the way of the dinosaurs.
