How to Manage Medical Imaging Data Growth and Costs
Medical images contain untold value for healthcare organizations, yet they’re exceeding the limits of on-premises storage. It’s time to take control with a new data management strategy.
Digital PACS, digital pathology and VNA systems are all generating and now storing petabytes of medical imaging data—lab slides, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans and more. These ever-expanding datasets are pushing the limitations of storage systems and challenging IT department’s ability to effectively manage data.
To get more flexibility and cost savings from storage, healthcare organizations are adopting unstructured data management software to tier cold medical imaging data out of expensive storage to cost-effective environments such as the cloud.
This white paper examines the benefits of augmenting your medical imaging solution with data management software that transparently tiers cold data from your storage and backups, explains what you should look for in a solution, and includes a case study of a healthcare provider that did this successfully.

It’s Time Medical Imaging Data Management
“Internal storage for large image files is expensive—costing millions a year for some organizations on Porsche-grade NAS devices. The data must be secured, replicated and backed up. Meanwhile, in most cases, imaging data is rarely accessed after a few days.”
