To keep pace with its growing electronic health record data and to maximize the availability of data, Tucson Medical Center uses NetApp ONTAP data management software running on FAS systems.

As a 100% digital hospital that's been named one of the nation's "Most Wired" for five consecutive years, Tucson Medical Center knows that relying on electronic health records reduces human error. However, the company needed to develop flawless patient monitoring systems, and provide fast and reliable access to electronic healthcare for physicians, pharmacists, and its 120,000 patients. Tucson Medical Center began exploring its options, and finally made the switch from CLARiiON onto NetApp.

Everything that we have, systems-wise, runs—and runs more resiliently because of NetApp storage.

NetApp technology has been an instrumental tool in the virtualization of 98% of the healthcare organization's more than 700 apps. In addition, it allows TMC to support its 1,300 users concurrently.

In addition, ONTAP software lets TMC reorganize storage structures with no downtime and no I/O impact on applications.
