Using Virtual Machines to Advance Health IT Infrastructure
July 06, 2018 / Elizabeth O'Dowd
As organizations continue through their digital transformations, more are embracing virtual machines (VMs) to support their health IT infrastructure. Virtual machines support the growth and flexibility of the cloud and also allow organizations to take full advantage of their on-premises hardware. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) options are currently being used, meaning that the on-premises hardware utilized to run traditional software is no longer as important of an investment. Organizations can cut back on hardware spending and deploy virtual machines that can scale to meet demands. VM technology provides benefits to healthcare organizations, including cutting back on energy and hardware costs, improving efficiency, security, and maintenance.
