Hospital Information Technology Mega Capacity Data Storage
a proponent of increased use of information technologies in
medicine, Galactic has thoroughly evaluated requirements for
computerized management of a number of medical procedures
(outpatient diagnostics, chemical tests, radiological tests,
hospitalization, etc.). To satisfy these requirements Galactic
designed a solution consisting of a centralized medical information
database, PACS system, HIS system, and has resolved a number
of issues in large capacity, high speed data transmission.
Galactic VSTOR storage system is targeted at information storage
in a large size hospital. It uses a tiered storage management
model with online storage, near-line storage, and offline
VSTOR storage system has the following main features:
1. Cross board RAID technical support, this integrates the
storage space of all LUN through RAID0 to form a big LUN.
By generating data belts through multiple RAID card strips,
IO bandwidth of the storage system increases by a few folds.
2. On a single platform, it can create storage space through
InfiniBand, FC, iSCSI, NAS, SAS, build SAN, DAS, NAS structure,
and integrate the data.
3. VSTOR storage system’s logic volume has only one
primary “read” and “write” permission
and multiple secondary “read” permissions. In
a medical system, storage can be divided into B Ultra volume,
Radiology volume, CT volume, only video equipment has the
“write” permission, other equipment have only
the “read” permission to perform data analysis.
In this way it creates two volumes on the same volume: online
In the entire hospital’s information system, Galactic
VSTOR technology has resolved storage (online, near-line),
backup and data transmission link issues. In addition, it
has taken servers into full consideration. Using Galactic
quad core server to meet the demand for large dataflow parallel
I/O, using server I/O acceleration technology, supplemented
with Fully Buffered DIMM technology, VSTOR offers data transmission
rate twice as fast as the standard Ethernet.
Galactic hospital information storage solution significantly
improves hospital’s management level, further enhances
standards of overall medical services, and strengthens the
hospitals’ overall competency.
Experts at Beijing Military Medical Institute conducted analysis,
testing, and comparison of product features, and decided to
use Galactic GT4000 super blade computing system. Galactic
GT4000 super blade system’s computing efficiency can
reach 84.35%, the highest in the world. With its powerful
computing capability, excellent stability and reliability,
this super computer built on Intel Xeon infrastructure provides
a strong foundation for the Military Medical Institute to
accomplish the sequencing calculation on SARS virus.
Galactic GT4000 super blade computing system is a cluster
system composed of a large number of blades, including placement
system, node system, network system, storage system, management
system and power supply cooling system, etc. At each node,
which is composed of server standard parts, and Galactic’s
independently developed power supply distribution subsystem
and InfiniBand high-speed interconnect distribution subsystem,
every blade in the cabinet shares the general purpose components
and I/O device, such as power supply, cable, fan, keyboard
and mouse, etc. Through optimization, Galactic large scale
parallel cluster system can expand to perform 100 trillion
floating point calculations per second. Galactic GT4000 blade
computing system is the first in the world that has integrated
InfiniBand unlimited bandwidth technology and PCI-Express
I/O bus technology on Intel solution platform, the real bandwidth
of the network can reach more than 20 Gb.
