When does a cloud exchange or co-location service become viable in healthcare?

Cloud Insights

Inevitably, healthcare organisations handling large amounts of data, are turning to the cloud to streamline their operations and increase their ability to securely collaborate with partners.

At the top of the  cloud data storage ecosystem are a few providers who are master connectors – the secure cloud exchanges. They sit above even the major cloud vendor services such as amazon and azure, and they offer very high  throughput and fast levels of storage and secure connectivity.

But starting the journey, or even escalating your momentum on this journey can be confusing. The spectrum of cloud based services is large and complex.

In this podcast, Medical Republic publisher Jeremy Knibbs speaks to the managing director of Equinix Australia Guy Danskine about that current cloud ecosystem, what a secure cloud exchange can do in healthcare, and how an organisation can get started or escalate their capability if they are already on a cloud journey.


If this podcast interests you, tomorrow at 11am tune in for a more detailed and practical view of the technology in our Building knowledge based collaborations at scale in the cloud. In this session we talk to four healthcare experts who are using cloud exchange to store, share and and analyse their data. The panel includes Associate Professor Mark Cowley from the Children’s Cancer Institute of Australia talking about how that organisation is connecting major cloud providers in order to collaborate on cancer data with partner institutions across the world.
