HP today announced that ITX Enterprises Inc., a virtual desktop service provider for behavioral health professionals, has selected an HP Converged Infrastructure to host its private cloud and expand service delivery nationally.
ITX Enterprises provides the Pro-Filer behavioral health records management system to a consortium of 500 behavioral health professionals across the state of Utah. Pro-Filer offers secure online storage for client records as well as invoice and payables generation for health practitioners.
To roll out the Pro-Filer system on a national scale, the company needed a reliable infrastructure with the flexibility and scalability to host a private cloud of virtual desktops. After evaluating competitive offerings from Cisco, Dell and NetApp, ITX Enterprises chose server, storage and networking solutions from HP. The company Discovered that competing solutions, such as Cisco's Unified Computing System (UCS), only provided a portion of the infrastructure it needed, and lacked converged storage solutions to support growing service demands. ITX Enterprises wanted a comprehensive solution from a single vendor to help reduce costs while simplifying system management and accelerating service delivery.
The updated infrastructure for ITX Enterprises includes a combination of HP's server and storage solutions, which streamline maintenance while easing troubleshooting and support. In addition, HP Networking has enabled ITX Enterprises to improve network performance while keeping costs down. Together, these components allow for better technical integration and convergence on a reliable, scalable platform.
"When we began discussions on offering the Pro-Filer system across the United States as a hosted solution, our infrastructure technology was outdated and just couldn't support the data-intensive service levels the system required," said Todd Christensen, IT manager, ITX Enterprises Inc. "After extensive research, we selected HP because their Converged Infrastructure delivered a comprehensive, integrated solution with the reliability and scalability we needed to support current as well as future business needs."
