Healthcare-exclusive cloud company achieves AWS Service Delivery Partner status for additional services
AUSTIN, Texas (August 22, 2017)—As healthcare organizations continue to migrate their IT infrastructure and data to the cloud, ClearDATA, the trusted healthcare managed cloud provider, has expanded its portfolio of Amazon Web Services (AWS) solutions. While the additions address a range of needs, all help healthcare organizations achieve better cost containment and newfound agility in a rigorously secure cloud setting.
The additions include AWS Lambda, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for PostgreSQL and Amazon Aurora. By offering these services, ClearDATA further helps its customers optimize AWS to accommodate even the largest data sets and transaction volumes. When paired with ClearDATA’s healthcare security and privacy expertise, these digital assets are protected with fortress-like security.
“Today’s healthcare IT infrastructure must enable a growing number of new care delivery platforms—including life sciences, telehealth, home health, patient engagement and more—while also maintaining the systems that support inpatient applications,” said Matt Ferrari, chief technology officer, ClearDATA. “It’s a lot to manage; the key is being able to quickly respond to changes in the environment.”
VitalHealth Software is one example of a healthcare technology company that has paired ClearDATA’s healthcare-exclusive approach to information security, HIPAA compliance, infrastructure automation and interoperability, with the immense scale, security and innovation of AWS.
“Like many other organizations in healthcare, we really wanted to use more of our IT resources for innovation instead of almost exclusively for IT infrastructure administration and management. That’s a big reason why we migrated to AWS in 2014, and ultimately why we decided to work with an AWS Healthcare Competency Partner like ClearDATA,” explained Arnout van Kuijk, technical services manager for VitalHealth Software.
New services enable rapid migration and market entry
The added tools help ClearDATA customers streamline, or in some cases, cut out altogether, time-consuming IT administrative and development tasks that delay deployment of important applications and services. A detailed description of each service follows.
AWS Lambda— Allows customers to run code without provisioning or managing servers. Customers can run code for virtually any type of application or backend service, all with zero administration.
Amazon DynamoDB—A fast and flexible NoSQL database service for all applications that need consistent, single-digit millisecond latency at any scale.
Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL—Manages complex and time-consuming administrative tasks such as PostgreSQL software installation and upgrades; storage management; replication for high availability and read throughput; and backups for disaster recovery. Amazon RDS PostgreSQL partners deliver new implementations, migrate AWS customers to Amazon RDS PostgreSQL, or build tools compatible with Amazon RDS PostgreSQL.
Amazon Aurora—A MySQL-compatible relational database engine that combines the speed and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. Amazon Aurora partners deliver new Aurora implementations, migrate AWS customers to Amazon Aurora, and build tools compatible with Amazon Aurora.
These services are the latest additions to ClearDATA’s growing portfolio of solutions and tools as a certified AWS Service Delivery Partner. To learn more about how healthcare IT infrastructure becomes cost-effective, scalable and agile in the cloud, visit ClearDATA’s “Knowledge Hub” today.
