FusionStorm guides PointRight to a more efficient, higher performance data center built on Cisco UCS and EMC.
SAN FRANCISCO — November 16, 2012 — FusionStorm — a national provider of IT consulting, technology solutions, cloud offerings and managed services — announced today that it has been selected by PointRight, Inc. as PointRight’s systems integration partner. PointRight has tapped FusionStorm for assistance with developing a technology strategy and re-architecting its data center infrastructure.
FusionStorm, with support from longtime partners EMC and Cisco, developed a technology roadmap that will enable PointRight to consolidate and streamline its infrastructure and more effectively support its rapidly growing business demands. The solution features EMC VNX unified storage and the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) server platform. FusionStorm is providing engineering and implementation services, as well as assessment and consulting expertise.
“FusionStorm came in and evaluated our server and storage infrastructure, and showed us how we can we can improve utilization and make our data center faster and more efficient,” said Chris Stakutis, VP of Engineering and CTO, PointRight. “They’ve been a great partner in helping us understand how to enhance performance and scalability and better position ourselves for the future.”
PointRight, an industry-leading provider of analytics and decision-support services to the healthcare industry, requires a robust technology infrastructure to support its 24×7 production-critical business. PointRight’s Software-as-a-Service solution analyzes the largest privately held dataset related to long-term care patients to help clinicians, facility managers and insurers measure, benchmark and improve financial and operational performance.
“We process 20,000 to 50,000 medical records every day of the week and our customers count on that data coming in and getting analysis and response immediately. Our new data center environment architected with FusionStorm is critical to our success,” Stakutis said.
The FusionStorm solution provides PointRight with twice the storage performance and two to three times the server performance in a consolidated, tightly integrated environment. FusionStorm also supported PointRight’s budgetary requirements by arranging financing through EMC Global Financing and Cisco Capital. Going forward, FusionStorm will be helping PointRight improve its backup strategy using EMC’s replication options, and leveraging EMC VSPEX Proven Infrastructure and VMware to virtualize PointRight’s environment.
“FusionStorm has been fantastic to work with throughout this project. And stay tuned — we’ll probably do two or three projects with them next year,” said Stakutis. “They’re going to be a long-term partner for us.”
