ICTI Announce Successful Implementation of a SAN
May 5, 2005
Yardley, PA – May 5, 2005 – Interactive Clinical Technologies Incorporated (ICTI) is pleased to announce that it recently successfully completed implementation of a Storage Area Network (SAN). The SAN is but one component of ICTI’s High Availability Strategy.
Putting ICTI at the forefront of the IVRS and EDC markets, the SAN provides full state-of-the-art backup and disaster recovery for ICTI’s clients. By maintaining a complete copy of all of ICTI’s data in a geographically separate, secure location, the SAN ensures the integrity of clients’ data in the case of a disaster. Data are written to the SAN in real time so that, unlike commonly used data backup procedures, there is no loss of data at ICTI in the event that ICTI’s main location is damaged and/or unavailable.
The SAN has massive capacity, not being limited in scalability or performance in the way that local area networks are. It also increases the efficiency of system resources, leaving more system resources available for clients’ applications.
Our clients’ clinical systems auditors in particular appreciate the data protection provided by the high reliability and high performance of ICTI’s fully validated SAN implementation.
Fritz Haas, ICTI’s Vice President of Information Systems, reflected,
“While the implementation of the SAN was a technology project, the impetus behind it was our commitment to complete customer satisfaction. That commitment means that we need to provide 100% data security and reliability. The SAN, along with our robust network environment, provides clients with that security.”
