Carestream Increases Scalability of Medical Imaging Solutions
For companies that make products to support the delivery of health-care services, helping customers minimize TCO is a strategic imperative. One way that Carestream Health addresses that need is by validating its SuperPACS* solution on the latest Intel® Xeon® processors, demonstrating the ability of the new platform to support more users per server.
Enable medical imaging customers to reduce the capital and operational expenses associated with their picture archiving and communication system (PACS) solutions, providing greater operational efficiency for the customers and a competitive advantage for the solution provider.
Without any platform-specific software optimization, Carestream SuperPACS* takes excellent advantage of the scalable performance features and capabilities of servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family, including increased core count and larger last-level cache.
Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series equates to a higher number of users per server at customer locations. That increase lets customers reduce the number of servers they need, for a healthier bottom line.
Making a Great Thing Better: Running on the Intel® Xeon® Processor E7 Family
The Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family is well suited to those demands for highly scalable performance.
Carestream engineers have taken a multifaceted approach to ensuring that SuperPACS delivers excellent performance and readily takes advantage of the new platform’s capabilities:
• Multi-threading. Carestream has built a proprietary threading library that efficiently divides tasks among the growing number of available processor cores.
• Intel Software Development Products. Intel® VTune™ Performance Analyze helps locate hotspots and optimize the environment, while Intel® Thread Profiler helps balance workloads on highly parallel hardware.
• Industry best practices. The SuperPACS development team keeps abreast on documentation from Intel on topics such as performance optimization and taking advantage of new memory subsystem architectures.
