Growth in Edge Computing Helps Fuel Growth as CloudWave Enables Healthcare Organizations to Architect, Build, and Integrate Solutions Using Managed Private Cloud, Public Cloud, and Cloud Edge Resources
CloudWave, a large independent cloud and managed services software hosting provider, has recently launched OpSus Cloud Services with seven additional healthcare institutions—bringing its total number of hospitals and healthcare organizations to more than 250. Additionally, the new hospitals deploying OpSus Cloud Services contributed to CloudWave the company’s best financial quarter in its history.
CloudWave provides a multi-cloud approach to guarantee uptime, easy access, and strong security to hospital users. Increased adoption in edge computing has helped to fuel CloudWave’s growth over the past few quarters as customers seek to maximize their existing investments in the data center, but struggle to find qualified local resources to help effectively manage those resources.
CloudWave OpSus Edge is infrastructure-as-a-service, located in the user’s data center, providing compute, storage, security, backup, recovery, and comprehensive operations and systems maintenance. OpSus Edge delivers the same world-class service as the company’s OpSus Live cloud hosting, but on hardware living at the customer’s facility. This addresses potential challenges a healthcare institution may face in adopting cloud services such as network connectivity, data sovereignty, or capital funding requirements. OpSus Edge provides and manages the entire technology stack from physical hardware up through guest operating systems and user access.
“We’ve been a long-time user of OpSus Archive and OpSus Recover services from CloudWave and have been very pleased. When we needed to upgrade our data center for Meditech Expanse we turned to CloudWave again,” said Mike Cottle, Information Technology Director at NMC Health in Kansas. “We chose OpSus Edge because it gives us many of the benefits of the cloud without having the infrastructure leave our local data center. Connectivity in our area is occasionally problematic, and we were hesitant to commit to a completely cloud-based solution. Edge gives us the best compromise.”
CloudWave enables its hospital customers to architect, build, and integrate a personalized solution using managed private cloud, public cloud, and cloud edge resources. Over the second quarter of 2022, the company is pleased to announce the following cloud services integrations:
- Newton Medical Center (NMC Health) in Kansas and a regional acute care hospital in Kentucky adopted OpSus Edge.
- Cumberland Medical Center in Tennessee, Cody Regional Health in Wyoming, and a medical center in San Juan Puerto Rico selected OpSus Live for fully managed compute, storage, disaster recovery, archiving, backup, security, and systems management. This infrastructure as a service solution provides secure hosting for healthcare EHR and enterprise applications.
- The Valley Health Systems in New Jersey and Marion Health in Indiana chose OpSus Recover to restore data to a cloud environment prebuilt and licensed for their unique configurations. In the event of a natural disaster, business disruption, or cybersecurity event where facilities become unavailable, OpSus Recover provides temporary remote operations and access to hosted systems to enable business continuity until hospital data center operations and data can be restored.
- A Kansas hospital chose OpSus Recover as well as OpSus Backup, a fully managed backup as a service to manage the protection of mission-critical applications across the healthcare enterprise.
“Hospitals worldwide are increasingly realizing the promise of what the cloud can do for healthcare, and are adopting managed private cloud, public cloud, and cloud edge resources at an unprecedented rate,” said Erik Littlejohn, president and CEO, CloudWave. “As a result, CloudWave just closed its best quarter ever. Our OpSus Cloud now delivers EHR and enterprise cloud services to more than 250 healthcare organizations in five countries and is also trusted as the cloud service provider powering software as a service for several major healthcare software companies.”
CloudWave’s OpSus Cloud Services provide managed hosting, end-to-end disaster recovery, systems management, security, backup, and archiving services, supporting 125+ EHR, clinical, and enterprise applications.
