Nexsan, a provider of energy-efficient long-term storage, and GE Healthcare IT have formed an alliance to provide systems for capturing, processing, storing and archiving images in hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
As part of the agreement, GE has certified Nexsan’s green storage solutions with its Centricity PACS-IW imaging solution. Nexsan said its certified products include its line of high-density storage solutions and Nexsan Assureon, a long-term archiving product.
The Thousand Oaks, Calif.-based Nexsan Assureon is an archive storage solution that combines patent-pending security features into a single, fully integrated disk-based storage solution. The company also said it offers its line of long-term disk storage solutions. AutoMAID, which is a feature on all Nexsan products, allows organizations to power down disk drives incrementally to an idle state, conserving more than 30 times the energy of a conventional fibre channel solution per petabyte of storage, according to the company.
The companies already share several customers, including Lenox Hill Radiology in New York City, and Metropolitan Diagnostic Imaging Group in Garden City, N.Y, according to Nexsan.
