Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is a nationally recognized, fully integrated academic medical center and health system based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Wake Forest Baptist deployed three Vblock System models: Vblock 720, Vblock 540, and Vblock 340 to provide the infrastructure for its new software-defined data center, Wake Cloud. The environment has been designed to support not only the medical center’s upgrade to Epic 2014 EMR 2014, but also more than 750 other applications—from storing and offering access to the medical center’s imaging studies to supporting its Citrix XenDesktop virtual desktop infrastructure.
"Now, that I’m the CFO I like the Vblock environment even more. First of all it’s saving us on the maintenance and support funding. That allows us to take those remaining investment dollars and actually put them into new innovative investment."
