14 March, 2023
The system will enable the hospital to automate its data centers. Shaare Zedek’s Technology Manager: "Digital health is transforming patient care for the better"
Juniper Networks and Shaare Zedek Medical Center have announced a collaboration, in which the hospital will carry out a digital transformation process of its data center using Juniper’s communication networks management solutions
The digital transformation will be based on Juniper’s Apstra automated data center management system, which includes AI capabilities. Apstra is a “goal-oriented” system, which receives the parameters of the network, defined by the user, and translates them into an array of links between the switches and the servers in the communication center.
The system will allow the hospital to automate data center network operations. According to Juniper, Apstra enables Shaare Zedek to deploy the hospital’s network fabric faster, ensure data center uptime along with network visibility and automation, optimize network operations, resolve issues faster, and reduce the overall cost of the data center network.
The hospital’s data center will be based on Juniper’s QFX switches series, which provides 100 Gbps capacity to support clinical and administrative applications and massive databases.
Shaare Zedek is a leading research and teaching hospital, running 30 departments and 70 outpatient clinics, and provides innovative treatments and therapies to one million patients per year. The hospital is also a model for large-scale emergency medicine and a leader in applying AI to patient care. Using Juniper’s technology, the hospital built state-of-the-art data centers on its two campuses to ensure the availability of life-critical systems and applications for uninterrupted patient care and robust data analysis to guide the best courses of treatment.
Shimi Ben Baruch, Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, Shaare Zedek Medical Center, said: “Digital health is transforming patient care at Shaare Zedek. Our data center operations must ensure the continuous availability of our life-critical systems and applications.”
Itzik Malka [pictured above], Director of Juniper operations in Israel said: “The network plays a vital role in keeping a modern organization healthy. It enables organizations to scale and support new applications and technologies that can assist in driving better patient outcomes and experiences.”
