Moorfields Eye Hospital in London has centralised the storage and back-up of thousands of patient records and other data.
Its servers and hard drives store thousands of electronic patient records, tens of thousands of scanned paper patient records, several hundred thousand images of eyes, and millions of patient demographics, appointments, and other documents.

Moorfields has deployed DataCore's Sanmelody back-up management suite, and Nexsan's ATABeast Serial-ATA disc-to-disc back-up system.
The system uses the hospital's Gigabit Ethernet Lan, and allows it to allocate extra terabytes of storage to the network easily, said Steven Gill, infrastructure support engineer at Moorfields.
