The cost of data storage is one of the greatest impediments to the adoption and expansion of PACS technology. Many PACS projects are delayed or cancelled because the cost of storage is prohibitive. Cambridge Computer can help you reduce storage costs without compromising on reliability or performance. Before you buy a commercial SAN or NAS solutionThe most common mistake we see is hospitals buying expensive enterprise storage devices for their PACS archives without considering the difference between their primary and secondary (backup, replication, DR) storage needs. You may be able to allocate resources more cost-effectively by designing a solution that encompasses a content management system based on relatively low cost RAID, optical, or tape storage. Incorporating some lower cost disk can not only reduce your initial acquisition cost, but can also lower your long-term cost of ownership.
