IO Announces Contract with the Chan Soon-Shiong Institute for Advanced Health, NantWorks LLC and National LambdaRail
IO, the leading provider of next-generation modular data center technology and services, announced today that it has been awarded a contract with the Chan Soon-Shiong Institute for Advanced Health (CSS Institute), NantWorks LLC and National LambdaRail (NLR), to support the largest health-care data center in the world. As part of the agreement, IO will provide private cloud computing services at IO Phoenix.
“Now, for the first time, we are able to bring together a high-performance communications network, dedicated storage capacity and high-performance computing,” said Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, Chairman of the CSS Institute, NantWorks and the NLR. “This is the infrastructure that we have so far lacked for healthcare, and which is vital to translate genomic data into actionable clinical decision making. It is the beginning of 21st century medicine.”
“In addition to generating massive volumes of information requiring high-performance IT, the regulatory environment of the healthcare ecosystem also requires a highly protected and reliable infrastructure,” said Anthony J. D’Ambrosi, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “IO’s high-density and ultra-secure infrastructure enables healthcare IT to accomplish their goals both today and into the future.”
When completed, the central health-care database will be used to securely store patient information, to be accessible nationally and eventually globally. IO’s highly secure and reliable data center infrastructure enables all sectors involved in the healthcare industry such as research organizations, physician groups, hospitals, third-party payers and patients to access releasable data more quickly to help make research or clinical decisions. The database will have connection to National LambdaRail, a 12,000 high-performance communications network linking major research institutions throughout the United States.
