During the ongoing years of covid, the hospital implemented QSAN XCubeSAN storage solution which includes a dual-architecture (Active-Active) and SANOS 4.0 core operating system. XCubeSAN utilizes high-performance Intel core to provide efficient data archival and reading quality to reach 99.9999% high availability and stable usage for users. Fast data transfer, quick deployment, thorough implementation, and stable quality of use fulfills the hospital’s requirements of high performance to implement excellent, trustworthy medical care into the community.

With our future goals in mind, QSAN XCubeFAS all-flash array was added into our selection of systems to provide 156K IOPS of performance under 1ms latency. We also chose QSAN due to its QSRAID and QSLife functions, which can monitor SSD health and use, to maintain the requirements of high availability and performance necessary for our medical system.

The Solution

We chose QSAN XCubeFAS and XCubeSAN dual-controller series after considering their quick deployment ability and agility, which supported efficient online data retrieval and communications required of internal management. Image data is more quickly shared between different wings of the hospital so that medical staff and patients may obtain information in minimal time and increase overall productivity.

The Benefits

QSAN’s in-built Fast RAID Rebuilt function enables abnormal disks to be quickly repaired in little time after to sustain prime system optimization. The function was made with customer performance in mind so that high, consistent standards of availability and quality may be maintained.

More conveniently, QSAN’s XInsight central management system can collect and centralize all data of QSAN products on a main server: the information gathered from each device includes pool, volume, disk related data as well as a detailed performance report of up to one year. This function can aid the user in understanding current system health and status of all devices to better predict and resolve any potential and existing problems.
