Medical Devices: What To Consider When Choosing A Storage, Backup, and Disaster Recovery Provider

09/21/2018

Nowadays, more and more connected medical devices generate significant amounts of real-time data. Along with the large volumes of data there will be a demand for the protection of an enterprise backup and recovery solution and the ability to scale, especially if they are subject to stringent data-retention regulations.

There are currently 3.7 million connected medical devices in use today, and Allied Market Research predicts that the Internet of Things (IoT) healthcare market will be worth $136.8 billion worldwide by 2021.

Backup is especially important as we consider aging hardware. Using aged medical devices you may run the risk of losing all the data if it is not backed up or loosing information that has been added since the last back up.

Disaster recovery and business continuity management is equally important. From natural disasters to ensuring business operations are up to code, the risk of downtime is at the forefront of medical device companies.

According to Analyst firm Aberdeen Research, 82% of companies have experienced unplanned downtime over the past three years and that unplanned downtime can cost a company as much as $260,000 an hour!

When considering a storage, backup and disaster recovery provider, you should look for the following:

  • Pricing of Hybrid Cloud Options
  • Storage Space Solutions
  • Scalability and Flexibility of the Selected Service
  • Physical location of the servers and data centers
  • Security of data stored in the cloud
  • Frequency of backups
  • Business Continuity Planning
  • Trusted and Reliable Partner
