MediQuant’s DataArk achieves VMware Ready – vCloud Air Status under Access Tier in vCloud Air ISV Partner Program

MediQuant, a leading provider of healthcare enterprise "active" archiving software and comprehensive legacy system retirement solutions, today announced that its DataArk® product has achieved VMware Ready™-vCloud® Air™ status. This designation indicates that DataArk has undergone technical validation within the vCloud Air environment, and is supported on VMware vCloud Air.

"vCloud Air helps healthcare providers transform the cost, quality and delivery of patient care while providing the necessary control and transparency for regulated organizations to establish and maintain compliance in their virtual and cloud environments," said Bill Hudson, Chief Healthcare Strategist, VMware. "DataArk on vCloud Air empowers clinical organizations to reduce their operating costs by consolidating disparate legacy systems onto a single secure platform that can be integrated into the existing EMR and managed with the same familiar tools that are in use today."

Additionally, MediQuant is a member of the access tier of the vCloud Air ISV Partner Program and is listed on the VMware Solution Exchange.

"DataArk is one of the first healthcare enterprise data archiving solutions to be certified as VMware Ready. DataArk provides a solution to the 'legacy system junkyards' that many healthcare IT organizations face. With DataArk and vCloud Air, organizations have easy management and access to data from retired applications at a fraction of the cost of maintaining legacy systems. By using DataArk on vCloud Air, healthcare enterprises can decommission legacy systems, maintain immediate access to historical healthcare records and reduce costs,"said Tony Paparella, President, MediQuant.

The VMware Ready program is a co-branding benefit of the Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program that makes it easy for customers to identify partner products certified to work with VMware cloud infrastructure. Customers can use these products and solutions to lower project risks and realize cost savings over custom-built solutions. With thousands of members worldwide, the VMware TAP program includes best-of-breed technology partners with the shared commitment to bring the best expertise and business solution for each unique customer need.
