NIMHANS Data Centre Biomedical Engineering

NIMHANS Data Centre

NIMHANS has setup a data centre to accommodate different facilities required to run various hospital applications smoothly. This data centre is equipped with more than 19 servers, storage infrastructure and high speed network connectivity. Now more than 5 applications, related to different areas like project, salary and the like are running successfully from this data centre. New-generation-higher-end network devices like firewall, layer 3 switches are also included.

 One new mini data centre using very advanced integrated infrastructure is almost ready. This will act as a near Disaster Recovery (DR) centre. Both these data centres are connected by 10gbs links incorporating high redundancy feature.

The power and cooling infrastructure has also been upgraded by installing additional high capacity generators, precision AC units and UPS. 

We are progressing with the implementation of upgraded storage infrastructure with DR by using storage to storage replicas as well as going to equip virtualization environment for hosting application with site recovery feature during the financial year 2014-15.
