HP Scores Medical Win

Cancer Treatment Centers of America upgrades to HP ProLiant servers, deploying more than 500 Hewlett-Packard servers across hospitals in suburban Chicago, Philadelphia, suburban Phoenix, and Tulsa, Okla.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America, a national network of hospitals, has upgraded its entire technological infrastructure to HP ProLiant servers. The technology upgrade is expected to increase system performance, uptime and reliability.

The hospitals depend on such infrastructure in order to operate electronic health records, specialized clinical programs, CRM and ERP applications.

"The growth of our organization required expanding our infrastructure to effectively respond to our needs," Chad Eckes, CTCA's CIO, said in a statement. "HP's innovative blade server technology delivers increased performance and reliability while ensuring the 100 percent uptime our mission-critical business applications require."

HP ProLiant servers were chosen based on capabilities such as ease of management, along with cost-effective price and the strength of Hewlett-Packard's product road map. To date, CTCA has deployed more than 500 HP ProLiant servers, including 200 blade servers, in its production and disaster recovery sites around the country. The CTCA environment runs on a combination of HP ProLiant DL580, DL380, DL560, BL460c, BL480c and BL260c servers.

CTCA uses the HP Insight Control management console for a 24/7 view of its infrastructure.
