The power to change our lives is within our grasp, and that power lies in data. We can now store, sort and view data in new ways, gaining unique insights and impacting medical record retention, patient care and disease research.

The advances in medicine over the past hundred years are mind-boggling. If the year was 1900, there is a good chance that I would be dead by now, but since it is 2015, I’m expecting to enjoy several more decades of existence. While better nutrition and living conditions are sure to account for some of these years, many are likely to be credited to diagnostic testing and preventive medicine.

If you check out Caringo’s case studies, you will see that object storage is already playing a tremendous role in the post-HIPAA healthcare industry. The benefits of a pure object storage system like Swarm is quite evident in medical use cases. From some of the biggest medical record archives (Department of Defense) and image archives (Premier Physician Services) to the most complex research organizations (Center for Inherited Disease Research and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital), Caringo object storage is paving the way to change our lives—both in quality and quantity.

Given our decade in the object storage industry, we have long understood the capabilities that simple, bulletproof, limitless Swarm object storage brings to the medical industry and research organizations. Now, with FileFly’s ability to seamlessly consolidate and protect files on one searchable platform, optimize primary storage with smart provisioning, reduce storage total cost of ownership (TCO) by 4x vs scale-up storage, and streamline data backup and recovery, we can make an even bigger impact on the future of healthcare and medical research. Read more about FileFly and how it has changed the game in file storage.

We are looking ahead to Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference December 7–10 in Las Vegas (booth #569). I hope to see you there. In the meantime, if you have questions or would like to try Swarm, email us. You can also connect with us on Twitter and LinkedIn.
