Florida Hospital Deploys Cloverleaf In A Green-Friendly Environment

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With "green" technology becoming more important to many organizations, Healthvision, a leading provider of healthcare specific software and services, announced that Florida Hospital, one of the largest hospital systems in the country and a long-time Cloverleaf client, recently migrated Cloverleaf to a more green-friendly platform.

This new platform consisted of HP ProLiant "Blade" server, running Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Cloverleaf 5.5. In this new environment, they now take advantage of virtualization which allows for on-demand capacity utilization. This environment also improves the reliability, availability, and resiliency of Cloverleaf in addition to being a more energy-efficient environment.

"Florida Hospital is a great example of how Cloverleaf can be deployed in a more "green-friendly" environment," said Renard (Rey) Currie, Healthvision's vice president of product management and strategy. "Not only does it allow for a more efficient use of combined processing technologies, the virtualization aspect gives our clients the flexibility to run on the operating system that is most familiar to them."

Florida Hospital reported no migration issues and saw notable performance increases during their Cloverleaf peak-volume testing where they were sending up to 21,000 messages an hour with no backlog in any of their connections.
