CHICAGO -- November 26, 2012

With a string of new customers and alliances with strategic partners for its
cloud-based medical image archive platform, Dell has been recognized as one of
the largest healthcare cloud computing providers in the industry.

In September, Frost & Sullivan recognized Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences
with its 2012 North American Company of the Year Award, based on the firm’s
analysis of the enterprise imaging informatics market. “In addition to
operating the industry's largest public cloud for medical imaging, Dell is
also ideally positioned for the implementation of private clouds within
multisite hospital and imaging center networks,” said Nadim Daher, principal
analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

Dell’s Unified Clinical Archive (UCA) solution – which offers both on-premise
and cloud-based storage options – simplifies data retention, facilitates
disaster recovery and allows medical professionals to access and share images
across a variety of applications and platforms. The Dell Cloud Clinical
Archive is now managing more than 78 million clinical studies and more than
5.4 billion imaging objects, and supporting more than 800 clinical sites in
one of the world’s largest cloud-based, vendor-neutral medical image archives.

New Alliances, Customers, International Growth

Over the last year, Dell has forged strategic alliances with industry leaders
such as Siemens Healthcare, Agfa HealthCare, Aperio, Acuo Technologies and
lifeIMAGE, in addition to previously announced alliances with Merge
Healthcare, Calgary Scientific, Novarad, TeraMedica, BridgeHead Software,
Avreo and Apollo.

These alliances – combined with Dell’s long-standing reputation in the field –
have resulted in significant customer growth, including engagements with
Intermountain Healthcare, Centegra Health System, St. Joseph Health, Hoag
Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, the U.S. Navy Medical Logistics Command and
the U.S. Army Integrated Clinical Systems PMO, Elizabeth Wende Breast Care and
Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center. Dell is also working with
HealthInfoNet, the Health Information Exchange (HIE) for the state of Maine,
to pilot the nation’s first statewide medical image archive.

Dell’s global presence is expanding with recent UCA customer growth in the
United Kingdom, Germany and South Africa. In the UK, Dell is working with the
London PACS program and the NHS PACS Supply Chain Framework, and is providing
the storage platform for the PACS solution chosen for the whole of Wales.
Dell’s continued efforts to bring cloud-based medical image archiving to the
UK highlights the company’s commitment to delivering proven, secure, flexible
data management options to improve patient care around the world.

“Through focused R&D efforts, acquisitions and strategic relationships with
partners, Dell provides imaging customers with industry-leading vendor-neutral
archive (VNA) and enterprise content management (ECM) capabilities,” said
Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst Nadim Daher. “Further, the cloud-based
model it innovated is now being validated by the broader IT industry. Dell's
UCA has set the standard for cloud-based  enterprise-wide management of
medical images and related information.”

“Healthcare providers are facing budget pressures while trying to manage the
explosive growth of digital data,” said James Coffin, Ph.D., vice president
and general manager, Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences. “Dell has developed a
flexible clinical archiving solution that enables easy and secure data
retrieval and sharing for the clinician, while simplifying IT management and
maintenance overhead.”
