Sugon solutions


The city’s new rural cooperative medical information system platform includes the database server, application server, high-performance storage system, network supporting system, etc, the redundant structure is used throughout the system, so that to ensure the high reliability and high stability of the business system.

The database storage system adopts the FC-SAN architecture, it is able to meet the high-frequency and low time delay response characteristics of database access on performance, meanwhile, the redundant structure is used throughout the entire network architecture. To avoid storage hardware failures, the storage device should be at least two controllers, each controller should be connected with at least two fiber lines. Dual redundant architecture is also applied on the transmission linkage layer, dual FC fiber switches are used, each host is arranged with two HBA fiber cards which are respectively connected with the two FC switches, the terminal database server provides external services in a load-balance way through the dual gigabit Ethernet interfaces.

Due to the inherent features of the new rural cooperative medical information system, data generated in the system includes the structured and unstructured data of the relationship database, the structured data includes the electronic patient index, business system data, collaborative database, etc, while the unstructured data includes the image data generated by the PACS image system, part of text data in the electronic patient records, etc. Different data has different storage requirements, therefore, the system adopts two types of storage systems to meet the business demands.
