Nationwide Health Care Services, a U.S. provider of short- and long-term care, has selected Nimboxx’s hyperconverged platform to improve speed, performance and ease of use across its IT infrastructure. The Nimboxx hyperconverged solution includes server, storage, networking and security in a single system. The solution would deliver the flexibility and cost savings of a true elastic private cloud with support for legacy workloads.
With aging servers and expiring warranty periods, Nationwide Health Care Services sought a new approach for its data center. The company wanted to take advantage of emerging hyperconverged solutions and evaluated a number of vendors before selecting Nimboxx.
“In the healthcare industry, growth can occur rapidly and we have to be able to scale our IT infrastructure quickly without impacting access to critical applications and data such as electronic healthcare records,” said Joe Forman, director of information technology at Nationwide Health Care Services. “The Nimboxx system performance has been tremendous, from the outset, not to mention the fantastic customer support, with the Nimboxx team quickly responding to all the questions and feedback we’ve shared. In addition, because it’s a single box architected from the ground up, our IT team doesn’t have to worry about hypervisors, hardware or other integration issues and license costs.”
By owning the entire stack from top to bottom, Nimboxx eliminates the need for costly licenses, integration and management of third party hypervisors.
“We continue to see strong demand from organizations looking to transform their data centers by eliminating complexity and unnecessary costs,” said Andy Salo, vice president of product management at Nimboxx. “For Nimboxx, it has always been about making virtualization easy by removing the barriers so businesses of all sizes can enjoy the benefits of a software-defined data center. We’re thrilled to work with organizations like Nationwide that are well known for precision and dedication to the highest levels of patient care.”
