Jewish Home Lifecare (JHL) is a New York-based nonprofit that's been providing healthcare services and assistance for elders for more than 160 years. But recent changes in the healthcare industry had overwhelmed JHL’s existing IT infrastructure, pushing its legacy systems to the limit just to meet day-to-day requirements. Given the organization’s large-scale electronic medical record (EMR) initiative, as well as other plans for growth across three facilities, it was clear JHL needed to review and upgrade its IT infrastructure.

For help, JHL turned to Derive Technologies, which helps companies modernize their data center facilities, infrastructure, and applications. Derive helped JHL deploy a new systems infrastructure featuring storage area network (SAN) virtualization, systems virtualization, and unified groupware and messaging technologies. The solution included three VMware ESX* servers using an HP c7000* enclosure with HP BL490c* blades, powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series.

“The Intel Xeon processors 5600 series provided the exceptional performance we were looking for and enabled us to reduce energy costs by adjusting performance to meet demand,” explained Darius Stafford, Derive's CTO.
