Intermountain Healthcare was ready to make a large-scale platform change for its numerous database environments, which support users ranging from clinicians to financial administrators. Beginning with the organization’s enterprise data warehouse environment, the database team migrated to a Linux* operating system running on IBM System X* servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family. The new environment has helped significantly increase database performance, simplify management, and facilitate scalability while providing cost savings that enable Intermountain to implement a high-availability clustered environment.
“By implementing a larger infrastructure based on the Intel Xeon processor E7 family, we rarely surpass 25 percent utilization for our enterprise data warehouse,” explained Chuck Lyon, operations lead for the enterprise data warehouse at Intermountain Healthcare. “As a result, we have the headroom to accommodate more user workloads and process queries much faster than before.”
