Resilient, Multi-Grid Architecture
Most PACS applications place the burden for transaction processing and load management at the system head end on a single system server. As the system grows, the server must be updated with larger capacity drives, memory, and other related components. In addition to the increased costs, a single system server provides a single point of failure for monitoring and real time assessment of deployed access control hardware. Typical multi-server PACS offerings address the single point of failure risk with expensive systems that are only justified for immense deployments.
RedCloud Convergence Platform is designed to provide more cost-effective scalability and resiliency through the deployment of a multi-appliance grid-architecture. RedCloud Express and RedCloud Enterprise leverage this high availability architecture for improved horizontal expansion of systems and better management of load and transaction processing - all while reducing the associated risks seen with a single point of failure. Through its design, the typical relative costs for extended hardware and software are greatly diminished, while the environment's resiliency to security degradation or monitoring outage is vastly improved.
