Madrid Health Service RISC Migration: More Potential, Less Cost
Madrid Health Service migrates from RISC to Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers to support critical applications
The Madrid Health Service (SERMAS) is a division of Madrid Regional Government, created in 2005. It is responsible for managing regional policies regarding public health, drug abuse and other addictive disorders within the region. It also provides healthcare services to the region’s 6.3 million residents.
• Reduce costs. In a complicated economic situation, SERMAS wanted to reduce its spending while improving the quality of service it offered
• Increase flexibility. It needed an infrastructure capable of supporting applications from different vendors and able to grow without compromising service availability
• x86 architecture. For their reliability and robustness, SERMAS chose Fujitsu PRIMERGY* servers with Intel® Xeon® processors E7-8870 and E5-5500 to replace its RISC architecture
• New operating system. Their existing operating system was changed to Red Hat* Enterprise Linux* 5.5
