Capsule technology chooses Marilyn for the hosting of its data

To meet the high-availability and storage of its data security issues, Capsule technology has made the choice to outsource its production within the HEAVENLY Datacenter infrastructure, Marilyn.

Global leader in connectivity solutions of biomedical devices in the hospital information system, the Capsule technology group responds to a growing problem of hospitals : documentation of the computerized Patient record and the specialty folders. Connectivity options apply to all the services of the hospital, whether it's critical care environments (intensive care, operating room…), General care (surgical services, medical services…) or emergency.

The key elements of the solution Capsule, the connectivity DataCaptor ™ software and the Capsule Neuron ™ platform, make a patient-oriented solution that integrates seamlessly with the technologies and infrastructures in place while greatly improving the methods of work of caregivers.

In order to meet growing storage-related problems to the exponential growth of the group abroad, and particularly in France and in the United States (80% supplementary CA annually, and multiplication of numbers by 2 in two years), Capsule has decided to outsource its production within the HEAVENLY Datacenter infrastructure, in Champs sur Marne. Indeed, the maintenance of the infrastructure became too binding, expensive and subject to repetitive failures.

Beyond the geographical proximity between Capsule France and CELESTE, the Marilyn site was prior to any selected on criteria of sustainable development and innovation. Indeed, TIER IV design with a fully lined electric chain, Marilyn offers a level of availability of 100%. In addition, the site's security is enhanced by many technical and human resources : biometric access, surveillance cameras, control intrusion or guardians, without mentioning the site management procedures.

In order to strengthen the high availability of the infrastructure, two computer centres CELESTE and Capsule are connected by a Lan To Lan (interconnection) secure two links fibre-optic-based 1 GIGA. In addition, two data centers are connected in double piped through two different paths.

Taking into account the close cooperation between the two companies, of many developments and services are planned to migrate this project to issues products Capsule.

«The choice of CELESTE is a strategic choice for Capsule» says Marc DIZIEN, Director of the Office of the Global information systems in Capsule, 'in addition to the problems of storage., maintainability and evolution of existing infrastructure of Capsule, We will respond to those of our customers : hospitals. Indeed, the sensitivity of the treatment and securing patient data is such that referral to specialists in the secure hosting is essential. » He concludes.

Datacenter Marilyn : 100% Fiber, a first global

CELESTE an update on the construction of its datacenter Marilyn Seinte-et-Marne and announces that he will be designed to 100% optic fiber, a world first

After laying the foundation stone of its datacenter Marilyn in October 2010, CELESTE gives a positive assessment of the progress and confirm the delivery initially set.

Fiber optic
Concretely, the start of production is planned for September 2011. Marilyn is a high density design Tier IV datacenter ecological. Its vertical shape allows air circulation easy. The fresh air will be drawn at the basement, cool machines and will be used to heat offices. Excess air escapes through the roof. This vertical design for a data center is unique in the world.

This is the first time such a project was born, and that has been the subject of a patent. CELESTE today announced another innovation : network cabling datacenter Marilyn 100% optic fiber. Unlike other datacenters, copper cabling was outlawed. This strategic choice is explained by the fact that CELESTE provides offers very high speed : 1G ou 10 Giga for clients, that can be interconnected with fiber optic deals across France. Furthermore, copper has drawbacks related to its weight and footprint caused by its production and reprocessing.

With these differentiating characteristics, Marilyn datacenter is about to receive the certification European Code of Conduct. This certification reference greets engagement data center operators who adopt best practices in energy savings. A few months before the launch of Marilyn, CELESTE is also looking for new employees such as engineers, network technicians, of fiber optic cable manufacturers ...

Enjoying international recognition, Marilyn concept will be presented by Nicolas DAWN at various conferences : “Datacentres 2011”, the 5 and 6 more ; as “Datacenter Dynamics, the 7 June”. He is also the subject of a study by Gartner Group. Marketing 600 m2 computer room is underway with customers CELESTE, but also new partners such as service companies or IT outsourcing companies, seduced by the offer coupled Datacenter + 1G fiber which opens up new perspectives.
