Storage abstraction

Storage abstraction enables the Lexmark VNA to communicate with all enterprise storage devices. The Lexmark VNA employs API best practices, working closely with storage vendors to understand how to make it work seamlessly with all storage products. The VNA storage abstraction encompasses:

  • Multi-tenancy support to abstract and manage your storage in the same context as your business
  • Containerization to package data into optimized and efficient streams of data
  • Multi-threaded read/write with high-performance capabilities to read and write data in parallel
  • Abstraction enables ease of upgrade or transition to new storage platform

Clinical data integration

Lexmark VNA provides metadata integration to API-supported storage platforms (CAS/COS/Grid/Cloud), enabling you to define data management rules and clinical information lifecycle management (ILM) policies within the storage medium itself. Key features include:

  • Important metadata attributes provided to storage platforms, more than just date/time/size of file created
  • ILM policies driven from storage media
  • Ability to define replication rules, number of copies, tiers, spin-down directly within the storage platform

System/Application health

Lexmark VNA provides a built-in performance environment and dashboard for each installation, regardless of whether the solution is focused on archiving, data migration, clinical data routing or all the above. Our VNA transmits system health information to the cloud, delivering results via the web. Key features include:

  • Integrated system health and monitoring
  • Cloud-based, allowing data to be managed within a scalable cloud infrastructure, eliminating infrastructure requirements for hosting system health capabilities
  • Web-delivered, for access on multiple devices, cross-platform and mobilized
