QTS Realty Launches Exclusive Healthcare Community Cloud

QTS Realty Trust, Inc. launched QTS Healthcare Community Cloud (HCC). QTS HCC is a purpose-built Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution exclusively for healthcare organizations that require a highly secure and scalable cloud infrastructure to safely share sensitive data, and meet strict regulatory mandates including HIPAA and HITECH. With more than a decade of experience keeping IT infrastructure and data secure, compliant and protected for healthcare systems, QTS understands the need for a cloud solution tailored to meet healthcare entities' complex compliance requirements. QTS HCC builds on QTS' cloud and compliance expertise, allowing organizations to leverage the benefits of the cloud such as improving agility, optimizing operations and resources to reduce capital expenditures, and protecting electronic patient health information (ePHI). The IaaS platform is designed to meet healthcare security and compliance requirements including HIPAA/HITECH, and includes important security features including two factor authentication, data encryption at rest, and dedicated compute and storage resources. QTS HCC also enables secure healthcare hybrid cloud deployments, making it safe for organizations to move workloads between clouds and manage information flows between applications that share ePHI. Technological advances, health-system consolidation and increased government mandates such as meeting HIPAA/HITECH compliance standards and Meaningful Use requirements are driving healthcare to transition to more agile cloud platforms. While adoption of cloud-based services has been slower in the healthcare industry due primarily to security concerns, IDC Health Insights predicts that 80% of healthcare data will pass through the cloud at some point in its lifetime by 2020. QTS HCC is built on technologies including VMware, Cisco and EMC. By integrating easily with private VMware environments, QTS HCC simplifies end-to-end cloud resource provisioning, delivery and management for hybrid cloud solutions.
