InSite One, Inc., a cloud provider for medical image data archiving, storage, and disaster-recovery solutions based in Wallingford, Conn., is utilizing technologies from IBM (Armonk, N.Y.) to help healthcare facilities store and manage medical imaging data.

According to InSite One, IBM is its vendor of choice for its primary datacenter expansion and storage device upgrades. Under terms of the agreement, the company is purchasing IBM storage and servers in its primary data center. Over the next few years, InSite One will also replace its existing storage and servers, with the total amount of storage purchased exceeding 1 petabyte, it says. The data center will use IBM System x Servers and DS3200 Storage systems.

IBM and InSite One will also collaborate on client enterprise storage and archiving opportunities where InSite One sells its services and IBM sells its storage and infrastructure solutions. The company expects the total value of the agreement to exceed $15 million.
