Proven Cloud Infrastructure and End-User Computing Platforms From VMware, Supported by Intel Technology, Can Help Health Care Providers Improve Patient Care
PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 16, 2012) - VMware, Inc. (
"The medical imaging cloud is an ideal application for virtualization and cloud infrastructure technology because it can improve the quality of patient care by enabling physicians to review patient images in a collaborative, secure environment," said Frank Nydam, senior director, Healthcare, VMware. "We are pleased to be working with Peake Healthcare Innovations to bring to market an innovative offering that can transform the quality and delivery of patient care, along with the ability to lower costs."
Intel technology will help support the Peake cloud solution and enable visualization of medical imaging. Intel and VMware have collaborated closely on the architectural enhancements in the Intel® Xeon™ processor and software optimization in VMware vSphere® to boost performance intelligently, increase consolidation ratios and enable servers of different generations to be easily managed from the same pool of infrastructure resources. In addition, desktop virtualization via VMware View™ enables doctors and other healthcare personnel to access and collaborate on high-resolution medical images required by medical personnel due to its ability to deliver fully lossless images. Healthcare IT based on Intel and VMware innovation enables organizations of all types to provide high quality, accessible, and economical products and services.
"Intel's technology is enabling cloud-computing usage models that synergize compute power, performance, and protection to help health care organizations control costs and meet stringent security and compliance requirements. We are excited about the opportunity to work with Peake Healthcare Innovations to bring this new collaborative medical imaging cloud to market," said Rick Cnossen, Worldwide Director of Health IT, Intel.
