VMware teams with Peake Healthcare for medical imaging cloud
Virtualization and cloud infrastructure developer VMware has partnered with Peake Healthcare Innovations to provide a secure cloud platform for collaborative patient care.

Peake, a joint venture of Harris and Johns Hopkins Medicine, will use technology from Intel to enable visualization of medical imaging. Intel and VMware have collaborated on the architectural enhancements in the Intel Xeon processor and software optimization in VMware vSphere to boost performance, increase consolidation ratios and enable servers of different generations to be managed from the same pool of infrastructure resources.

Peake Healthcare Innovations will move enterprise image storage and diagnostic viewing into the cloud. The offering will enable diagnostic viewing by leveraging VMware vSphere and desktop virtualization via VMware View, the companies stated.
