NetApp (Sunnyvale, Calif.) and Iron Mountain Incorporated (Boston, Mass.) recently formed a partnership to provide healthcare organizations with a secure cloud-based solution for medical data archiving and disaster recovery. Iron Mountain is the only healthcare-focused member of the NetApp Service Provider Partner Program, which was officially launched in June 2010 and was the first of its kind in the storage industry.




Building on their collaboration under this program, the two companies will integrate NetApp StorageGRID object storage software with two Iron Mountain medical data archiving solutions -- the Digital Record Center for Medical Images and its vendor neutral archive offering -- to provide healthcare organizations with consolidated archiving and disaster recovery offerings that help deliver improved medical care to their patients.




Cloud-based archiving and disaster recovery, with its greater levels of flexibility, scalability, access, and security of complex and diverse big-data assets, can help eliminate issues around system interoperability and disaster recovery by moving data offsite and keeping it independent of existing systems.
