Revisiting Network and Security Architecture in the Virtual Era
Presented by Jim Fitzgerald and Jay Bazzinotti, CloudWave
Virtualization has taken over server farms and is bleeding its way into storage and networking. The disbursement of Meaningful Use dollars has been accompanied by a new set of audit teeth in the HIPAA and HITECH acts. Networks architected and installed during the Clinton/Bush era cannot handle the full-blown “network computer” created by virtualization nor can they easily accommodate the security and availability needs of modern healthcare. Join leading technologists from CloudWave for a fast-paced discussion of new technologies that lower the cost of modern networking, enhance internal and external security, and improve systems availability in line with planned enhancements to the MEDITECH platform.
