Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) February 18, 2010
Explorys announces the first stage of completion of its enterprise scale data center in Northeast Ohio. The company recently signed a multiyear agreement with Expedient to leverage their national network of high capacity, secure, and SAS70 compliant data centers for the Explorys network.
The data center will serve as the base for future expansion of the Explorys DataGrid platform. Built upon next-generation massively parallel grid computing, the Explorys DataGrid platform will provide the engine for the company’s healthcare population intelligence and search engine.
Utilizing a uniquely scalable grid technology, Explorys enables the instantaneous search and collaboration across some of the largest patient populations in the world to identify opportunities for drug development, innovation, improved treatments and more cost effective healthcare – all within a secure, privacy protected, and HIPAA compliant setting. The system is scheduled for launch in mid 2010, with Cleveland Clinic as an anchor contributor.
“This important step in building our computing capabilities not only positions Explorys as the leader in health care population intelligence, it also represents our commitment to the Northeast Ohio region and the jobs it will create”, stated Charlie Lougheed, Explorys President and Chief Technology Officer. “We’re positioning the company to meet the oncoming demands for growth in data, capacity, and reliability within our partner network of healthcare providers.”
“We are excited to be working with Explorys as they work to improve the healthcare system through the use of technology. Explorys has the potential for explosive growth as healthcare organizations recognize the benefits that their services can deliver. Expedient is proud to provide the data center services that support their expansion projects”, states Bryan Smith, Expedient Vice President of Sales.
