Cliniques universitaires Saint-Luc (UCL) Establishes Core Medical Service Platform Using Huawei Storage

19 Jan 2017

Cliniques universitaires Saint-Luc (UCL)recently announced its plan to use Huawei OceanStor storage to establish their core medical service platform. The announcement marks a major breakthrough in the European healthcare industry.

Shenzhen, China, January 19, 2017

With 5800 employees and more than 1000 beds, Saint-Luc is the second largest hospital of Belgium. In addition to providing top-tier patient care and medical technologies, Saint-Luc is the reference hospital of the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) in education, research and innovation activities—a move that has garnered industry-wide recognition in Belgium and the entire European continent at large.

With the recent explosive growth in the volume of medical data, Saint-Luc like many other hospitals needs to transform its business mode. The non-unified data storage typically used in hospitals greatly complicates resource consolidation and provisioning. Ensuring business continuity and data security is also of paramount importance. To address these challenges, Huawei has provided the hospital with a layered architecture to be used in hosting. Additionally, Huawei has ensured end-to-end protection of customer data by configuring comprehensive all-flash, DR, and backup solutions.

Huawei will deploy core hospital services on mission-critical storage that utilizes an all-SSD layout. This creates a high-performance, low-latency data service platform while also reducing overall data. The system reduces the number of disks, power consumption, and cabinet footprint by over 50%. Meanwhile, the Huawei active-active data center solution offers 99.9999% business availability—preventing system downtime. The hospital will also utilize Huawei’s converged storage in constructing their backup system.

The Huawei HyperMetro gateway-free active-active array solution utilizes Huawei OceanStor V3 converged storage devices to create an end-to-end, active-active layout by bridging database clusters, transmission equipment, networking, and other elements. This ensures high availability and reliability between data centers up to 300 km (186 miles) apart. Services switch automatically and the functions of upper-layer applications are not impacted.

Huawei Storage has earned the trust of more than 6000 customers worldwide. The Huawei active-active array solution has been applauded by experts in telecommunications, finance, government, and other industries. Huawei is committed to helping enterprises and institutions transform their operations in the face of exponential data growth.
