NORCROSS, GA: StorTrends®, the data storage division of American Megatrends, Inc. (AMI) and an industry leader in all-flash arrays (AFA), hybrid storage, and spinning disk
solutions, is pleased to announce that Cleveland State University Center for Innovation in Medical Professions (CIMP) in Cleveland, Ohio has elected to secure its data with StorTrends.
This fall, Cleveland State University opened the doors to its Center for Innovation in Medical Professions, a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the study of health care professions in new and innovative ways. Larry Warf, Manager of Technical Services at CSU, was tasked with setting up the infrastructure to support the presidential initiative behind the establishment of this new program and facility.
During this process, it became clear that the incumbent storage vendor was not the right product for the task – primarily due to the lack of desired features at a cost-effective price. This led to the selection of StorTrends from American Megatrends, due to its ability to handle the large amount of data needed for storage and the fact that the StorTrends solution was offered at a competitive price. Speaking about the selection process, Warf said that "The challenge that we faced was finding a unit capable of storing 20 TBs of video and yet cost-effective."
With the successful implementation of its StorTrends data storage system, CSU's CIMP is changing the way instructors teach and how medical students learn. Faculty can give lectures that are captured in video format and students can review them. Students can perform medical tasks such as- CPR and medical simulations on an intelligent mannequin that records the students' actions. Video footage from various angles is captured from cameras in the room for instructors to provide feedback.
"We needed a right-sized, standalone system particularly for this project. The product showed up as quick as a flash and everything worked out of the box and it is doing the job," said Enterprise Systems Administrator Bill Brock.
"The StorTrends solutions are ideally suited for high-volume data management operations like Cleveland State University. StorTrends offers the high performance and reliability needed to robustly serve mission critical data, together with excellent cost effectiveness to deliver exceptional ROI," commented Justin Bagby, Director of the StorTrends Division of American Megatrends.
Cleveland State University Center for Innovation in Medical Professions fosters inter-professional education in classrooms and high-tech "collaboratories", where future physicians, nurses and health professionals use a team approach to health-care education to ensure better health, better care and lower health-care costs.
