Pivot3®, Inc., the first company to deliver virtual servers and scalable storage in a single platform, announced today that the Muskogee Community Hospital deployed Pivot3 Serverless Computing™ as the compute and storage platform for multiple systems within the newly constructed healthcare facility. Initially purchased to store video from security cameras, the hospital now uses the energy-efficient Pivot3 platform to backup its Exchange and file servers, and as a host for a clinical imaging system. As a result, the hospital is able to reduce power and cooling costs by up to 40 percent over alternatives that require unique physical servers.
Muskogee Community Hospital was constructed using the principles of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. LEED guidelines promote design and construction practices that protect the environment.
“Muskogee Community Hospital’s commitment to limiting environmental output propelled us to leverage technologies for multiple uses to lower costs, reduce energy consumption and increase efficiency,” said Owetha Wilson, IT Administrator, Muskogee Community Hospital. “The Pivot3 CloudBank storage array is allocated for video surveillance and IT system storage. Not only does the array substantially reduce our carbon footprint, but the cost of ownership is much lower as the Pivot3 array manages several functions.”
