The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) needed a solution to help modernize its aging storage environment and correct deficiencies identified in the 2014 VA Critical Infrastructure Assessment. The Smartronix team has successfully deployed storage and backup solutions at VA datacenters using a managed services approach to supply on-demand storage/services within several prescribed storage classes. Smartronix provides a cost-effective platform that enables the VA to more efficiently procure storage, reduce duplication, and maximize the use of equipment, space, and power. This solution enabled the VA to keep patient data on-site, while delivering flexible, scalable as-a-service storage options in an on-demand basis and decreased the burden that legacy IT systems placed on the agency's budget and staff resources.
