Jackson Clinic has implemented EchoStream for AIX from Vision Solutions, a provider of disaster recovery system, to maintain business operations for its nine medical clinics throughout western Tennessee.
Vision Solutions said that the Jackson Clinic now has continuous data protection (CDP) which provides a range of recovery points for restoring data. If data is lost accidentally or maliciously, they can now return to the exact point before the loss, achieving instant recovery.
Vision Solutions also said that its EchoStream ensures the practice management and electronic medical record systems are available at all times. When load-intensive reporting needs to be completed, the clinic uses EchoStream’s TimeView feature to perform the task on the remote backup machine.
According to Vision Solutions, TimeView allows the user to create a virtual yet fully functional read/write copy of the data on the target system. Using this TimeView copy for reporting, testing and other operations, resources can be conserved on the production server.
William Butler, system and Mimix administrator of Jackson Clinic, said: We needed a replication solution that easily and reliably backed up our data to a second IBM System p server. We chose EchoStream for AIX because of its advanced continuous data protection functionality that allows us to go back in time to recover lost or corrupted data.
