Oklahoma Surgical Hospital (OSH), founded in 2001, brought together physicians
with a passion for bringing the closest possible care to their surgical patients. Taking
residency in the Oral Robert’s CityPlex Towers, OHS offers a variety of patient
services for surgical procedures with 20 operating rooms and employing over
500 healthcare workers.
Oklahoma Surgical Hospital’s system was running out of space on their storage
array, without the budget to expand it. Simultaneously, they also needed to renew
their already budgeted for backup software. Along with possibly renewing their
installed backup solution strategy, they also needed to address the requirement for
file level restore.
Bringing together a team of SageNet, HPE and Veeam solution architects, working
closely with OSH’s IT Director Richard Flewellen, a solution to address the multiple
problems and fit within their budget constraints was achieved.
Using HPE’s Apollo Storage System, together with Veeam Backup & Replication,
SageNet helped change their backup strategy to write only the changed blocks,
while compressing the data stored, in addition to providing a new storage location
for the backups. Installing the new backup software, as well as the HPE Apollo
Storage System, SageNet provided a lighter, faster and more intelligent storage and
backup solution to OSH, within the budget constraints.
By restructuring the backup strategy onto a new storage array, SageNet was able
to not only provide more storage space, but also a better storage system. This
in turn freed-up space on their existing SAN and thus improved their storage
capacity 10 times over. By switching OHS to a Veeam solution, SageNet was also
able to reduce network load, while increasing accessibility of their data.
Additionally, with the new storage location on the HPE Apollo Storage System,
SageNet created a new offsite storage location which increased the security of
data from physical dangers. Working closely with the customer and manufacturer,
SageNet provided a solution to address data copying, separation of media, and
adding a new offsite location for storage. All while staying within the original budget
to renew licensing for their original backup solution.
