HP helps Trust lead the way with Datacentre ‘PODS’

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. It will allow the Trust to implement a virtual desktop infrastructure which will enable clinicians to access patient information from any location, using any device. The Trust intends rolling out a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ and mobility strategy across the Trust over the coming months. Read more: Sync NI / DHSSPS Press Release
