The South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust has installed two HP Performance Optimised Data Centres (PODs) at the Ulster Hospital, Belfast to improve its IT services. Delivered in partnership with BT, the ‘PODs’ are the first to be installed in Northern Ireland and will meet the Trusts computer needs for the next seven to ten years.
The HP POD is a cloud solution which provides a single virtual data centre environment for all the Trust’s operations.
