Iron Mountain Tweaks Cloud Storage for Medical Information

Paul Lilly

Data storage isn't as simple as it once used to be, and a result, we're seeing companies custom tailor their storage products for specific sectors, most notably healthcare. And that's exactly what Iron Mountain has done, which on Monday announced an enhanced version of its Digital Record Center for Medical Images, a cloud storage service for performing backups and archiving digital medical info.

"Today, healthcare organizations face the challenges of managing explosive data growth while ensuring access and control over information that originates in different silos but is needed across their organizations," Iron Mountain said. "Tighter federal and industry regulations, along with shrinking IT budgets, have led healthcare organizations to re-evaluate how they store, access and protect their critical patient data, while preparing for the transition to electronic health record systems."

Iron Mountain went on to say that its Digital Record Center for Medical Images addresses those needs by providing a single cloud storage service for backups and archives. Features include a pay-as-you-go model, as well as a hybrid onsite and offsite storage model.
