The solution features EMC VNX unified storage and the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) server platform. FusionStorm is providing engineering and implementation services, as well as assessment and consulting expertise.

"FusionStorm came in and evaluated our server and storage infrastructure, and showed us how we can we can improve utilization and make our data center faster and more efficient," said Chris Stakutis, VP of Engineering and CTO, PointRight. "They've been a great partner in helping us understand how to enhance performance and scalability and better position ourselves for the future." PointRight, an industry-leading provider of analytics and decision-support services to the healthcare industry, requires a robust technology infrastructure to support its 24x7 production-critical business. PointRight's Software-as-a-Service solution analyzes the largest privately held dataset related to long-term care patients to help clinicians, facility managers and insurers measure, benchmark and improve financial and operational performance.

The FusionStorm solution provides PointRight with twice the storage performance and two to three times the server performance in a consolidated, tightly integrated environment. FusionStorm also supported PointRight's budgetary requirements by arranging financing through EMC Global Financing and Cisco Capital. Going forward, FusionStorm will be helping PointRight improve its backup strategy using EMC's replication options, and leveraging EMC VSPEX Proven Infrastructure and VMware to virtualize PointRight's environment.
