A Sneak Attack on Big Data Center Makers

To add new medical software at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, a network of 23 health-care facilities in California, Chief Technology Officer Joseph Wolfgram used to go shopping for a long list of pricey new servers, storage equipment, and networking gear. “For every new application, it was another investment,” Wolfgram says. “That’s what’s wrong with the traditional data center.” In November he bought one all-purpose box from startup Nutanix, which uses software to shift between processing, storage, networking, and other tasks that can require as many as a dozen devices. The Nutanix package costs about $144,000, and Wolfgram says it saved Hoag 40 percent over the health-care network’s older hardware.
