Expanding seamlessly with an IBM Cloud solution
MediStreams chose an IBM Cloud solution based on the platform’s dedicated hosting options and robust portfolio of offerings for supporting and managing VMware workloads. Additionally, the organization appreciated IBM’s global reputation for high-reliability, security-rich infrastructure solutions. “Teaming with IBM for cloud infrastructure immediately lets people know that we’re a company operating at a higher level,” says Coyle.
IBM provisioned bare metal server infrastructure in the IBM Cloud data center in Dallas, Texas, establishing virtual private network (VPN) connectivity with MediStreams’s existing cloud environment in Las Vegas, Nevada, to create a highly resilient hosting platform. A VMware vCenter Server on IBM Cloud deployment running in the IBM Cloud environment provides MediStreams with powerful capabilities for managing and rapidly scaling its VMware resources and a tier of Endurance block storage.
Speeding deployment time and scaling cost-effectively
For businesses providing healthcare revenue solutions, working with a new customer typically requires a lengthy onboarding process. With its IBM Cloud platform, MediStreams significantly reduces deployment time and gains a competitive edge in the industry. “When you have your software running on really solid, scalable infrastructure like IBM Cloud, the time from closing a contract to going live with a new customer is shortened,” says Coyle. “We’ve seen a significant reduction, and it’s something that’s starting to be recognized when providers are assessing vendors. We’re now pretty well-known for the fact that we’re agile and can deliver in a minimal time period.”
As MediStreams continues to expand its offering portfolio and customer base, the company will flexibly and cost-effectively support growth with IBM Cloud resources available on demand and data sharing between IBM Cloud sites at no charge. “With what we’ve got in the pipeline, I can’t imagine what it would be like if I couldn’t make the phone to let IBM know we need additional infrastructure and have it up and running very quickly,” says Coyle.
