Building a healthy storage array

A poorly configured SAN was stifling innovation at Montefiore until an equipment and data overhaul was enacted, reports Hamish Barwick

It opted for AAPT's virtual environment with fibre optics to each site.

"We have good bandwidth and a virtual data centre," he added.

Another project is enhancing security services to make them more "staff and guest friendly." "We have a number of card access systems. What I want to do is ensure that card access and CCTV can be integrated," Coller said. "I also want to look at how we use our card access system with a view of maximising the functionality," said Coller.

For example, if a family visits a relative living at one of Montefiore's sites regularly, access cards could be given to family members to automate the onsite process so they don't need to sign in a guest book.

"We will know when the family is onsite and when they leave. If they want to have a meal with their parent, we could register that information on the card so when they go to the dining area that they are tagged and the system knows those family members are entitled to a meal," Coller added.
