If you’re considering the thought of getting a backup server, why not consider getting a cloud server of your own? WD recently introduces its WD My Cloud WD and WD My Cloud EX2 personal drive cloud storage which provide a complete solution for user to organize, centralize and secure my digital content from all of my computers and mobile devices and access their files from any devices connected to the Internet.
Now I’ve been a strong advocate of proper storage solution in my previous organisation I’ve worked with, simply because I stress on the importance to keep our digital assets safe and secure for years and hopefully decades to come. Now the single drive WD My Cloud™ is a personal cloud solution for families and even individuals who are connecting, sharing, syncing and backing up numerous mobile devices and computers in their household. Do note that the WD My Cloud is design with the non tech-savvy consumers in mind, streamlining the setup and backup features with just a few clicks of a button. Since WD My Cloud is a drive that sits in your home and connected to your local network, this gives consumer like us complete control of organizing our digital files and also serves as a home’s digital entertainment hub, able to store and stream terabytes of movies and music simultaneously.
Just like WD My Cloud, the WD My Cloud EX2 is too a cloud storage, the only difference is, it’s a 2-bay system and most suitable for prosumers. Both WD My Cloud and WD My Cloud EX2 are available at selected retailers and are distributed by Amble Action Sdn Bhd and Eternal Asia (M) Sdn Bhd in Malaysia. The WD My Cloud mobile app is also available for download for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
A creative professional and social media junkie, Galvin Tan has been blogging since 2005 and he writes about everything from food to gadget. The ownCloud community, developing popular open source file sync and share software, released ownCloud Server 8.0, speeding up sharing and collaboration in the cloud while maintaining control for data owners.
Favorites and metadata supportWith ten thousand or more files found on a typical file sync and share account, users can now assign a favorite icon to files and folders and quickly locate, access and edit important content. Optimized search interfaceAn updated search UI provides a simpler and easier user experience including enhanced result set reporting which speeds access to searched files. Additional enhancements in this release include web interface enhancements on both the user and admin interface. The provisioning API, that had been limited to the Enterprise Edition, is available to the community as an open source app, providing the same system administration benefits to the overall ownCloud community. Developers have the ability to specify dependencies in info.xml, ensuring that the ownCloud app container can automatically resolve stated dependencies. A hybrid cloud is a composition of at least one private cloud and at least one public cloud.
Cloud providers support private clouds now, for example; Virtual Private Cloud from Amazon Web Services. More than 50 percent of Global 1000 companies will have stored customer-sensitive data in the public cloud by year-end 2016. The cloud market will grow beyond $60 billion: The cloud market including private, virtual private and public cloud markets will reach about $61 billion by the end of the year. Private clouds will go beyond virtualization: With an increasing understanding of cloud computing, companies will shift their focus from technical virtualization projects to focus on the change management aspects required for flexible business models between IT and the line of business. OpenNebula is the result of many years of research and development in efficient and scalable management of virtual machines on large scale distributed infrastructures. OpenNebula is the cloud management tool which helps to synchronize the storage, network and virtual techniques, and also helps the users to deploy and manage virtual machines on physical resources according to the allocation strategies at data centers and remote cloud resources dynamically.
We can use infrastructrue editor in web interface to create and modify the disposable infrastructure for your applications.
Secondly, it can manage all the virtually and physically distributed infrastructures centralized and can create infrastructure with the heterogeneous resources at datacenters. Compared with Eucalyptus, OpenNebula has more strong support of private cloud platform and dynamic management of the scalability of virtual machines on clusters.
OpenNebula provides various interfaces which can be used to manage and interact with the physical and virtual resources. OpenNebula has a Network Subsystem that is easily adaptable and customizable, which makes it capable for better integration with existing datacenters. The Virtualization Subsystem (virtualization manager) is the component in charge of talking with the hypervisor installed in the hosts and taking actions needed for each step in the VM lifecycle. OpenNebula offers powerful user security management,which make use of pluggable Auth Subsystem for authentication and authorization of requests. OpenNebula supports groups and ACLs (Access Control Lists).Groups allow administrators to isolate users and their resources from one another, while OpenNebula's implementation of ACLs allow cloud administrators to permit or deny operations for users and groups.
On-demand Provision of Virtual Data Centers(VDC) is the yet another feature which Open Nebula offers.A Virtual Data Centers (VDC) is a fully-isolated virtual infrastructure environment where a group of users, under the control of the VDC administrator, can create and manage compute, storage and networking capacity . Effective monitoring of Virtual Infrastructure using configurable System Usage Statistics like OpenNebula Watch utility to visualize and report resource usage.
Hook Manager mechanism in OpenNebula can trigger administration scripts upon VM state change,which opens a wide area of automation for system administrators to tailor their cloud infrastructures. OpenNebula offers the High Availability support.It has a persistent database backend with support for high availability configurations. OpenNebula supports Hybrid Cloud Computing thereby managing an external public cloud just as it is another local resource.
OpenNebula also offers cloud interfaces to its users on Private or Hybrid cloud so that they can grant access to external parties or users to their cloud infrastructure or can sell their over capacity to someone else. Another interesting thing is,it provides user self-service portals and easy-to-use interfaces.
OpenNebula packages are available for almost all the linux distributions and can be easily installed. OpenNebula QA, a part of OpenNebula carries out automated testing and quality analysis for functionality,scalability,robustness etc.
You will not be required to purchase any additional hardware to meet OpenQRMa€™s requirements; you can still use your existing resources with OpenQRM. Setting up failover and automatically launching new instances in case of a server has never been so easy.
If you suspect since it is a€?open source a€?, you will not be able to run the Windows server instances on your cloud. As mentioned above, the OpenQRM comes with a web based, fully fledged cloud management portal similar (or even better) to the ones you get with the public cloud services. OpenQRM comes with a set of API's and command line tools which can be utilized by your development team in cases where you need to control the OpenQRM from external apps. OpenQRM comes with a custom High availability plug-in which allows you to launch new servers when a current server goes down.
As you can see from the sample architecture, the OpenQRM software binds different resources and technologies and constitutes it in to a cloud network within your infrastructure. Components are the main building units of the private cloud, the different instances of components are joined together when launching a server instance within the cloud.
And say if you know nothing about these technologies, you don't need to worry about that either. The OpenQRM does this act of virtualization by the help of available plugins shipped along with OpenQRM. We highly recommend you to use modern storage mechanisms like SAN for utilizing the cloud to its best performance.
Once you enable a storage plugin, say LVM, you now need to create the storage server component which can be done using an idle resource on the cloud.
Now you can save the server boot image (you can either create it yourself or can be downloaded from OpenQRMa€™s image-store) and save it to an unused logical volume. These were the main components which can be called as the building blocks for the OpenQRM cloud.
This way the OpenQRMa€™s pluggable fashion makes it easy for you to create, launch and delete instances through the portal. Your cloud comes with a default kernel which the appliances will be using; you can add additional kernels if you want to get more updated kernels than the default one.
You now enable a virtualization plugin say KVM, you assign an idle resource as your kvm host, select the necessary image, Kernel and start the kvm host appliance.
As you can see, the complete process of launching a server instance inside your cloud is very simple using the portal provided by OpenQRM. This is the web based cloud management portal included with OpenQRM, and you can see all the tasks related to the cloud can be done form this portal.
By a planned configuration of the cloud, you can save more on the resources and get more outputs from the existing resources. Cloud computing is no longer a myth, the flexibility, scalability and availability it provides is unmatched. Not long ago, concerns about storing electronic protected health information (ePHI) anywhere other than within your own data center were common. Healthcare Enabled Services for cloud, hosting, and colocation provide connectivity, availability, and reliability that can be cost-prohibitive to manage on your own. When it comes to selecting an EMR solution, every doctor wants to keep costs and complexity to a minimum. Cloud computing is revolutionizing the healthcare industry by providing new delivery models to make healthcare more efficient and effective, and at a lower cost compared to the traditional technology model. MyOfficePlace Private Cloud Hosted healthcare solution is the best choice for doctors wanting to continue to focus on delivering patient care vs.
With a Private Cloud Hosted healthcare solution, the physician accesses the EMR through the Internet using their computer, tablet or any other Internet enabled device.
In the traditional on-site server-client model, the EMR application is installed on each PC in the office and connected to the database that is installed and runs on servers located within the clinic. A typical practice will save $5,000 in startup costs and anywhere from $500.00 & up in monthly operating costs with a Private Cloud Hosted healthcare solution.
Take into account that we have excluded cost for users' training and the configuration of the EMR application as those costs are similar no matter which option you select. The MyOfficePlace support installs and upgrades upon availability overnight, while your business is idling. The MyOfficePlace's delivery platform maintains 99.99% uptime and scalable to handle all of your business growth and digital traffic needs. Our infrastructure includes the following redundancies: alternative power and internet data connectivity sources, security, ability to maintain up to 24 x 365 services, backup generators, well planned cooling, and concurrent maintainability to protect your organization from financial damages due to the lack of your systems availability.
The MyOfficePlace's datacenter is considered as a “Fault Tolerant Infrastructure” facility, meaning no single point of failure exists in the datacenter’s architecture. With MyOfficePlace Cloud Services you don't need to purchase, maintain or upgrade expensive server hardware, UPS power backup or AC cooling when your office runs out of power. To access your data with Private Cloud Hosted healthcare solution you don’t need any special software.
Along with securing the data, MyOfficePlace ensures that practices have access to the data when they need it or when a patient requests it, which is required under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. With Electronic Medical Records (EMR) solutions you can enhance automation, improve the availability of patient information, increase collaboration, and simplify integration of health care automation tools. Make it easier for people to connect with EMR information in real time using their PCs, tablets, phones, or browsers.

Integrate clinical data across the care continuum—within and outside your organization—for a more complete view of clinical quality and care activities.
Consolidate financial, operational, and clinical data from disparate systems across your organization to provide your staff with a single, enterprise-wide view that helps them measure and manage quality and efficiency. Enable self-service BI and provide staff with real-time or near real-time connected, relevant information that can help them identify trends early and take action to address quality or cost issues sooner rather than later. Provide patients with convenient, security-enhanced access to their medical records, lab results, and more so they can stay informed about their health.
Deliver tailored outreach to promote relevant health and wellness services and educational offerings.
Allow patients to consolidate their health information—including daily blood pressure or blood glucose readings, and prescriptions into one easily accessible account they can share with health professionals. Private Cloud Medical Billing Software Hosting solution is tailored for your specialty and unique workflow. Traditional on-site installed medical billing software is being increasingly replaced in recent years by web-based Cloud medical billing hosting, "hosted medical billing software", "on-demand medical billing software", "medical billing ASP", or "medical billing software as a service". Hosted, Web-Based EMR Software – Web-based medical billing software, online medical billing software, hosted medical billing software, medical billing software-as-a-service (SaaS) – all these terms refer to the same thing: a new model for medical billing software deployed over the Internet. Our EMR solutions include hardware provided by HP, software, upfront support, installation, setup and training. Privacy protection: Round the clock access to your EMR is provided over a secure,encryted communication link. High availability: With redundant remote access pathways and professionally managed servers you will be able to access your EMR whenever you need to. Data Security: Your data will be housed by a world-class facility protected from theft, fire and other natural disasters. The findings released in a recent Wall Street Journal article about the storage of medical images were not the least bit surprising. Cloud storage allows medical offices to store, view and share images over a secure network reducing the need for duplicate images (with the added advantage of exposing patients to less radiation associated with medical imaging), and helps physicians make faster diagnoses while also lowering costs. So you may or may not have seen my ambitious post on Facebook about making 3 cloud pillows on Easter Eve. This entry was posted in Uncategorized and tagged cloud pillow, giveaway on April 2, 2013 by krisha. My youngest is giving up her crib this weekend – I would put this adorable cloud pillow on her new bed and would tell her she needs to keep her head on it all night long to have sweet dreams! Although there are a number of free cloud services available such as iCloud, Dropbox, OneDrive, GDrive and Tresorit, there’s always the issue with limited storage space and having to pay hefty price to get that extra storage.
Following the success of its WD MY Cloud EX4, the introduction of the single drive WD MY Cloud and the 2-Bay WD My Cloud EX2 system are perfect alternative solutions for users that want an easy, less complicated and private way to store all their digital content.
Whether it’s a simple portable hard drive or something slightly more complicated like a Network Area Storage (NAS), getting a suitable and reliable storage solution is a must for everyone from this generation – and cloud storage solution is definitely right way to go.
And by taking away the complex issue of organizing digital files from various devices and platforms, WD My Cloud provides the perfect storage solution for wherever you are, whenever you want and on whatever devices you have.
Back up your digital photos from your smart devices and your computer is as easy as a touch of a button. These media files can be streamed to any DLNA certified multimedia device, or in this case, any Smart TV which is connected to your local network.
It works well with Linux OS too if you’re on one of those, much affordable Open Source PC or notebook.
It also includes advanced data serving options including an integrated file server, FTP server, backup server, and P2P download server. It also introduces support for favorites and improved search functionality, enabling users to access important files without excessive navigation. The introduction of favorites and the improvements to search are core ownCloud functionality that will have a significant impact on the user experience. Server favorites set a foundation for additional file and folder metadata in future releases of ownCloud yet remain on-premise for greater privacy and data security.
Additional search parameters, as well as general usability improvements, make it easier for users to find the files they need fast. For those just starting to develop with ownCloud, a app tutorial and demo app will provide a proper foundation to build against the extensible ownCloud Server 8.0 platform. The private cloud can either be maintained by the user company or a private cloud hosting provider.
There is also support for establishing VPN connectivity to the private cloud from our company network. Under pressure to reduce costs and operate more efficiently, more than 20% of organizations are already selectively storing customer-sensitive data in a hybrid cloud environment, Gartner says. It helps us to build any type of cloud: private, public and hybrid for data centre management. OpenNebula was first established as a research project in 2005 by the Distributed Systems Architecture Research Group at the Complutense University of Madrid. You can create virtual machines and configure them as you would configure a physical machine connected your network. OpenNebula is mainly used to manage the data centre of private cloud and infrastructure of cluster, and it also support hybrid cloud to connect the local and public infrastructure.
Firstly, from the view of infrastructure management, it can dynamically adjust the scale of the infrastructure of the cloud platform by increasing the number of hosts and partition clusters to meet different requirements.
This can guarantee the use of resources more efficiently and can reduce the number of the physical resources through the close integration of servers which further reduce the cost caused by space-saving, management, energy consumption, cooling and so on. It is flexible enough to support as many different image storage configurations as possible. It also supports the authentication based on passwords, ssh rsa keypairs, X509 certificates or LDAP.
OpenNebula allows for the automatic configuration of VMs which supports wide range of guest operating system including Microsoft Windows and Linux. Its powerful and extensible built-in monitoring subsystem and Host Management Subsystem helps in the advanced control and monitoring of physical infrastructure.
OpenNebula possesses a Virtualization Subsystem with broad hypervisor support(Xen KVM and Vmware),for the centralized management of environments with multiple hypervisors, and support for multiple hypervisors within the same physical box.
OpenNebula provides a Unix-like command line interface with support over a wide range of operations including VM images,VM templates,virtual networks,zones,authentication etc. We can configure and customize the software according to our requirements using the OpenNebula source code. Ita€™s fully pluggable architecture focuses on automatic, rapid- and appliance-based deployment, monitoring, high-availability, cloud computing and especially on supporting and conforming multiple virtualization technologies. The main advantage about this is, your a€?not fully utilized resourcesa€? can be utilized to their full performance and gain maximum output from your existing resources.
With OpenQRM all these tasks can be done automatically, you just need to configure the failover and high availability from the cloud portal and thata€™s it; OpenQRM will handle all the remaining tasks for you. You are wrong then; you can even run windows servers as well with native Linux server instances on the cloud using OpenQRM. This is very helpful in cases where your application is important and HA is very critical for your project. The OpenQRM supports all the major open-source virtualization technologies like KVM, Xen, and VirtualBox etc.
You don't need to compile the kernel, install and configure the Virtualization software and all the other tiresome work; you just enable a plugin and mark a resource with that plugin thata€™s all. For most of the clouds, for reliability we should not be using the ordinary Hard disk based storage. You can even build software San's using your existing Disks, using a RAIDED fashion for better availability and reliability. DRBD, even though cannot be called as a storage mechanism, involves mirroring and OpenQRM supports it as well. After you mark an idle resource with the storage plugin, the idle resource becomes the new storage server and you can manage the logical volumes on the storage server from the cloud portal. And these boot images are used within the appliance configurations for launching cloud server instances. You can even clone this logical volume to a new logical volume and thus you don't need to go through all the tasks of downloading, extracting and saving boot images to storage server. We create the image configuration by using the cloud management portal, then give a unique name for the image configuration, select the correct logical volume from the Storage server, and save this configuration. These kernels are saved to the OpenQRM server, when the appliance starts booting it fetches the correct kernel as per the appliance configurations. The above mentioned instances components are plugged-in to an appliance configuration to create a cloud server instance, and that part is detailed below. You will be creating an appliance configuration from the portal using the component instances (image, kernel, resource).
Create a new storage server component using the enabled plugin (LVM) , on a resource in the resource pool. While creating the image, you mention which storage server should be used, which logical volume in the server should be used etc. You can see sections for events (logs), appliances, components (kernel, image, storage, resource etc), plug-in manager etc. The concept of server consolidation and pooling of RAM and CPU has revolutionized the growth of scalable applications.
Concerns about HIPAA compliance made storing and sharing ePHI a confusing jumble of potential problems. As a result, healthcare organizations are moving toward Cloud Computing as a fully managed model to enhance data privacy and security, and provide access to information anytime or anywhere - on their mobile phones, tablet devices, laptops, etc. That’s because all supported computer infrastructure, including backup, monitoring, firewalls, etc., exists already at the MyOfficePlace hosting facility.
Whenever the vendor sends you your software upgrade on a disk, you have to install it yourself. We will back up your data and more importantly we will guarantee your data restore from the backup.
Instead you will get encrypted, secure access at any time & anywhere where an Internet connection is available.
Whether reviewing patients’ test results from their mobile devices, sharing real-time updates on a patient’s condition with a care team member via a security-enhanced portal, or conducting an online consultation, Microsoft technologies can help your staff productively use EMR data to improve quality and efficiency. MyOfficePlace supports the ability for you to choose among private cloud, public cloud, or hybrid approaches based on your needs.
Today, more businesses are turning to web-based software, and specifically to a MyOfficePlace Hosted solution. With this popular type of medical billing software by Karee, there's no software or hardware to buy, install, maintain, or upgrade.
As your partner, our mission is to provide the best foundation on which to deploy and implement your EHR, EMR or HIE healthcare applications and achieve meaningful use.

We will provide you expert hosting services to convert all major EMR software vendors into a web based, cloud platform.
By avoiding unnecessary downtime with our hosted service you can save at least $700 per month.
Whether you are at your office, the hospital, your home or a hotel your EMR is just a login away. According to Frost & Sullivan, the amount of storage volume needed to house medical images has more than tripled since 2005, and set to double in the next five years. Well, you see…one of the perks of having a Mom who can sew is she can make stuff on a whim. The 2-bay system allows consumers to start off with a single drive and later on expand its storage capacity by adding yet another drive. Administrators will find better performance and greater control with this latest release," said Frank Karlitschek, founder and maintainer, ownCloud project.
OpenCloudMesh enables collaboration beyond the borders of individual clouds to create a globally interconnected mesh of research clouds - without sacrificing any advantages in privacy, control and security an on-premises cloud provides. Improvements to Documents and the provisioning API further ensure that users can collaborate across systems and files. The public cloud can be any services subscribed from ay of the public cloud vendors like Amazon web services, Rackspace etc.
So this enables Cloud based hybrid cloud build either within the same provider or cross platform.
This tool includes features for integration, management, scalability, security and accounting of data-centres.
Difference between OpenNebula and Amazon EC2 (and other public cloud providers) is that Amazon EC2 is a public service. The disposable infrastructure manager handles the infrastructure for each Applogic application which includes virtual appliances, catalogs etc. From the point of infrastructure users, OpenNebula is scalable and can provide rapid response to usera€™s requirements. Other open-source solutions mainly focus on public cloud features and do not realize the full potential of virtualization in the data center to enable private cloud. It also provides a set of commands to interact with the system from the command line interface. For more user friendliness,it offers a Sunstone graphical interface with usage statistics and cloud-watch like functionality. Adding new resources to the cloud can be done automatically via a custom PXE boot mechanism provided with OpenQRM. When it comes to serious virtualization the main two open source technologies used today are kvm and Xen and your cloud supports both. When using the ordinary hard disk based storage, you are actually compromising the HA on your cloud. Now with the latest release of OpenQRM it is said to be supporting gluster storage mechanisms. These are the normal Linux kernels, and OpenQRM is shipped with a default kernel and you can manually add additional kernels as per necessity. Once the appliance configuration is completed with a boot image, kernel, resource on which the appliance should run, you can start the appliance and a server instance with the given configurations is launched on the resource you have mentioned in your configuration.
You will now create the server appliance configuration by selecting a kernel, image and then launch it on the new kvm host resource.
MyOfficePlace Cloud Hosting Solution can convert seamlessly an existing EMR application into the web based application available from any internet browser and instantly deliver it to the user without any features or functionality lost. In this model all of the IT management activities and expenses are the responsibility of the clinic.
Your Private Cloud Server will be added on the fly to an existing pool of services designed to provide real-time protection and management. You don’t need to worry because your patient data is much safer when it's managed by our backup professionals. IT service support calls, software maintenance, hardware upgrades, your time in doing backups, or upgrades are just a few of the costs of operating expenses.
Think of how useful this solution is if you work in more than one location or you have more than one clinic – you can share the same database information with all locations without any extra effort. The shift from paper files, which you can physically see and touch, to electronic files makes many people uneasy, even when data can be stored on servers in their office, let alone on a cloud.
At the same time, powerful security features help give you vital control over user access and help safeguard health and organizational data. With MyOfficePlace offerings, you can support your people in the ways they want to work, giving them access to EMR information from virtually any device. Login from anywhere and connect with thousands of pharmacies, labs, hospitals, radiologists, payers, patients and other providers.
Our Cloud Hosting converts your existing Medical billing application into web base application. You will probably also require IT professionals to install, deploy, and maintain your software. We are the first and only fully accredited EHNAC (Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission) OSAP Data Center in the State of Maryland and we currently host the top 10 EMR software products as well as many others in our datacenter facilities. To address these alarming numbers, healthcare facilities are more often looking to the cloud, and for good reason. She can also concoct grand plans that sometimes, kind of all the time,  never come to fruition. If you’re wondering what sort of hard drive to use, WD recommends the WD Red® hard drives which are specially created for ultimate reliability in a unique 24×7 NAS operating environment. Additionally to that, consumers can download and run a host of third party apps, including some Content Management Systems (CMS) and some free open source applications.
Some use cases include keeping the application servers internally and make use of the storage in the public cloud for archived data. The hybrid cloud is the best among the three as it brings together the comfort level of a private cloud & the flexibility and versatility of the public cloud. Its very efficient core is developed in C++ and possesses a highly scalable database back-end with support for MySQL and SQLite. The initial release of OpenNebula was on March 2008.The initial release of OpenNebula was on March 2008. Amazon uses an internal infrastructure management tool like OpenNebula for providing those virtual resources to people as they demand. OpenNebula also supports public cloud platform by providing interfaces and functions to virtual machines, storage and network management and so on.
From the point of system integrators, users can deploy any kind of cloud and integrate the visual datacenters and products or services in the management tools say cloud providers, virtual machine managers, virtual image managers, service managers, management tools and so on. OpenNebula Sunstone is a Graphical User Interface intended for regular users and administrators that simplifies the typical management operations in private and hybrid cloud infrastructures. A group in OpenNebula makes it possible to isolate users and resources thereby preventing a user in a particular group from accessing the resources allocated for other groups. The elaborated log files by OpenNebula helps in understanding the internal work-flow and quick troubleshooting. Since Hard disks will be the first thing going to get a failure on a server, storing your cloud instances inside that will not be suitable.
You can enable the image-shelf plugin in OpenQRM to download the boot images from an OpenQRM managed image pool. Now you can store, manage, and safeguard ePHI outside your four walls, making it easier to collaborate and coordinate care.
All infrastructure services are already included in the price of your cloud hosting services by default. We can also lock access to the sensitive data for users once they are outside their office location if required. Despite the uneasiness many feel about storing data off-site, the cloud can be safer to store private information than an in-office server. And, since it is critical to protect patient data, Microsoft Security and Compliance offerings help you manage risk while at the same time simplifying and streamlining security-enhanced access to your EMR and other systems. We will provide you with a hosted platform to move your entire practice application, store data and add any other application required for your business. Periodic upgrades can be very disruptive to your business and you run the risk that your vendor will someday "sunset" your version.
The hospital in the article, Henry Ford Health System, needed to invest $200,000 in hardware and software upgrades to its image archiving system, it opted for cloud services.
Such hybrid cloud approach offers immediate provisioning and rapid scalability on an as needed basis.
After that the stable version of OpenNebula 2.2 was released in March 2011 with the new SunStone GUI. As OpenNebula is an open source, flexible cloud with extensible interfaces, structure and components,it makes it suit be used in any kind of data-centre. It allows us to easily manage all OpenNebula resources and perform typical operations on them. A powerful Access Control List (ACL) mechanism is used for allowing fine grain permission granting. Everything will remain the same with an exception that your EMR application and data will be far away from your office. The biggest financial advantage of this was the removal of the large capital investment and the installation of a more affordable service that housed the images offsite at a reasonable upfront cost or monthly usage fees.
I would have made a big deal of it {cake and the works, with a complimentary blog post} but, I was knee deep in grand plans that are still evolving. Organizations may host critical applications on private clouds and applications with relatively less security concerns on the public cloud.
Seven months later, in October 2011, the project released OpenNebula 3.0 which is the latest stable version. Apart from the above mentioned interfaces, there are several cloud interfaces like OCCI (Open Cloud Computing Interface) and EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) Query, that can be used for creating public clouds.
Even though the data presumably would be backed up at a practice, many cloud system providers have multiple backup facilities, so the data will be less likely to become permanently lost if something goes wrong. A survey by Mimecast, a cloud-based EMR vendor, found that many in the medical industry consider cloud computing a viable option.
It found that 32% of the health care industry is using cloud-based applications, and 73% of those are planning to add more applications to the cloud in the future.
