    Executive summary

    Governments around the world are focusing more and more on medical costs, availability and reliability of medical services, retention of records and the quality of patient care. This renewed focus is driving medical institutions to acquire infrastructure solutions that provide high levels of resiliency and availability while still providing the necessary performance to ensure appropriate medical care and retention of data.

    This reference architecture is the result of Sectra and EMC engineers working together to leverage the performance and workflow of the Sectra PACS application along with the performance and availability capabilities of VMware and a variety of EMC storage technologies. The solution capabilities tested and documented enable a customer to deploy a highly available virtualized Sectra PACS environment that can easily be expanded to include robust disaster recovery capabilities, such as single and multi-site data replication. Failover scenarios of site 1 to site 2 and back were developed and tested, including meeting the performance requirements of the Sectra PACS application during this process.

    Sectra and EMC have a global interest to ensure that the solutions offered to customers are validated, tested, and documented as any outage has the potential to impact a persons health. An outage can also cause fines to be levied against the medical institution and its business partners so it is critical that these solutions work the first time out of the box and consistently until no longer needed.

    The global medical industry has gone through a series of rapid changes over the last few years due to new regulations, requirements, and reimbursement recalculations. These trends are expected to continue for the foreseeable future as governments continue to reduce costs while increasing the medical services offered to their citizens.

    This new Sectra/EMC solution will help medical institutions meet these new challenges head-on, ensuring delivery of care when and where needed.

    Introduction

    This document provides a reference architecture for Sectra PACS using multiple EMC-based solutions for storage and data replication. VMware vSphere data center products are used as the virtualization platform.

    This document is intended for use by pre-sales, sales engineers, and customers who want to deploy the Sectra PACS vApp on EMC platforms.

    Sectra PACS provides radiologists with the environment to perform their work as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Sectra PACS provides instant access to all the tools in one single diagnostic workstation. Efficient planning tools and excellent overviews reduce wait times to a minimum, supporting fast and accurate diagnoses.

    Sectra PACS provides the perfect reading tool in a data-intense environment. Sectra PACS provides fast transfer of data regardless of whether the image set contains 60, 600, 6,000 or even 60,000 images. A unique image- handling model makes it possible to start working with the images just as quickly, regardless of the size of the dataset. In addition, it features an o
