Array Networks ADCs Enable Scalability, Availability and Security in the Cloud at EClinicalWorks Mega Data Centers
High-end APV10650 application delivery controllers enable eClinicalWorks to consolidate its cloud-hosted application infrastructure to meet demands of its growing SaaS business.
February 20, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Array Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking, today announced that eClinicalWorks has deployed Array's flagship APV10650 application delivery controllers to ensure high availability for consolidating cloud-hosted application infrastructure.
eClinicalWorks (eCW) is a market leader in ambulatory clinical systems, and its cloud-hosted solution enables physicians and other medical personnel to effectively access patient records from anywhere. eCW deployed Array's APV10650 appliances to scale SaaS offerings and accommodate growth while maintaining a secure, reliable and low-latency experience for its healthcare provider customers. eCW has been consolidating infrastructure into a smaller number of larger data centers to reduce overhead, simplify management and take advantage of economies of scale in response to recent growth.
The APV10650 appliances allow eCW to ensure that applications remain available 24/7, individual servers are not overloaded, and if a server goes offline, traffic is rerouted to another available server. The APV load balances servers, offloads SSL secure transaction processing and supports of all of eCW's SaaS offerings, including electronic medical records (EMR), practice management (PM), revenue cycle management (RCM), electronic health exchange (EHX), patient portals, mobile access and others.
By placing Array APV10650 application delivery controllers in front of physical application servers, terminal servers and data base servers, eCW has achieved a level of redundancy that ensures its SaaS offerings will remain up and running in the event of hardware failure in the data center. In addition, providing redundancy at the logical level for each customer ensures that each customer has high availability for their specific services and is not impacted by issues that may occur with other services within eCW's points of delivery.
"Array's APV10650 appliance delivered the scalability needed to accommodate our growing business," says Matt Lewis, CIO of eClinicalWorks. "We considered several other application delivery controller vendors and found that Array exceeded our performance requirements and provided more than 90% of the application delivery functionality we needed at almost half the price of the market leading competitor. Array provided the optimal balance of sound technology and cost-efficiency."
"Array is excited to continue our existing relationship with eClinicalWorks," noted Paul Andersen, director of marketing at Array Networks. "The deployment of Array's new APV10650 appliances is a testament to the success of eCW's initial installment of our APV application delivery controllers six years ago. Our APV10650 appliance has been able to deliver the functionality, performance and scalability eCW needed for its mega data centers while also maximizing the company's ROI."
