St. Louis, MO, January 20, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Hostirian, a St. Louis Hosting and Services company has launched HIPAA Compliant Cold-Row Containment Pods. These pods provide a secured, managed location for customers who must comply with HIPAA and HITECH Act security standards. The pods provide a robust colocation environment maximizing your budget and the life of your hardware while helping to protect the storage of your Protected Health Information (PHI).
“Not only are our Cold-Row Containment Pods HIPAA compliant, they use about 50 percent less power than a traditional data center with the same IT load. That’s huge. Not just for the bottom line savings, but for the equipment,” says Ken Cox, Vice President of Operations at Hostirian.
“Our customers are typically getting more servers installed into a pod cabinet than a traditional open-air cabinet. We moved a customer from an open-air environment to the pods and the same IT hardware went from using 18 amps of 208V to 9 amps at 208V. The result is a much more efficient data center,” continued Cox.
The HIPAA compliant cold-row containment pods provide the ability to increase server density, provide locking doors, dedicated surveillance cameras are available, and all access to and from the data center is logged and recorded on video. This security combined with the hardware efficiencies provide a great solution for your HIPAA hosting needs.
HIPAA is the acronym for the “Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act” that was passed by Congress in 1996. HIPAA provides processes and procedures to help protect patient information for healthcare and healthcare services organizations.
