Holland, Ohio-based Wellstar, through its wholly owned subsidiary Trillennium Medical Imaging (TMI), a provider of imaging systems through the use of infrared detection, announced plans to transition to a virtual cloud data system in conjunction with the launch of the revised camera system. The implementation of a TMI Virtual Cloud Data System will provide the framework to meet TMI’s data needs for initial rollout and well into the future. The system meets all of TMI’s requirements for corporate data, patient data, and other Federal regulations. Cloud based systems are the future of data processing and the TMI Virtual Cloud Data System will provide the foundation for the future growth of the company.

The system will be infinitely scalable and will allow TMI to rapidly add an unlimited amount of new accounts without data storage constraints. The server will have built-in redundancy with a backup server located 600 to 800 miles away. This disaster recovery plan allows for instantaneous back up of all data streams and can be managed remotely. The servers will be maintained by the host.
