Server Virtualization Successful Case in Hospital
With hospital information technology development, the hospital
increased business applications gradually.
HIS, LIS, EMR, office automation, financial management system,
asset management, decision-making systems has been widely used,
increasing applications had improved healthcare quality and patient
At the same time the hospital is also facing serious challenges for
the wide range of system deployment, and maintenance.
Currently the hospital has more than 36 internal applications
installed instand-alone servers, which caused server resources is
not enough in peak period, but difficult to expand applications in
redundant server resources in idle hours.
1. Datacenter needs easy expansion, high availability, unified
management for all hardware and software.
2. Solve the compatible problem of multi applications running on
one hardware server to solve business interruption caused by
3. Migrate the HIS, LIS, EMR, portals, office automation, financial
management systems, asset management, decision-making systems etc.
36 systems to IaaS platform which achieves live migration to ensure
no business interruption.
4. Be convenient for rapid application deployment to avoid
continuous hardware purchasing.
5. Support disaster recovery for the IT infrastructure delivery.
6. Build backup management system to meet the demand of data
security in hospital.
7. Reduce costs, improve efficiency, energy savingto meet the
hospital’s management requirements.
8. IT infrastructure meets next 2 to 3 years’application deployment
Using the new purchased 4 high-performance X86 physical servers and
OS-easy vServer to install IaaS platform to run the hospital’s core
Business systems: HIS, Outpatient Registration, Outpatient Charges,
Emergency Registration, Emergency Room Charges, Medical Card
Management System, Medicine Library Management System, Hospital
Management Fees, Hospital Doctor Management, Medical systems,
Detection LIS System, Hospital Doctors, Outpatient Doctors,
Formulation Management, Personnel and Payroll, Materials
Management, Equipment and Fixed Asset Management, Case Management,
Medical Statistics, Decision Support, Office Automation, Insurance
Office Management, Rational Drug Use, etc.
OS-easy vServer presents servers as "Resource pool", makes the
application not installed in a single physical server, and achieves
live migration, high availability in the whole resource pool.
At the same time, realize dynamic resource (VM) allocation and load
balance by scheduled tasks.
Itcan make multiple virtual machines to run one applications (such
as: Registration Management, Drug Management, Fee Management, etc.)
to solve high utilization from 8:00 to 11:00 am.
