As various industries become more reliant on increasingly complex equipment and networks to conduct operations, it’s imperative that organizations ensure every component within those systems runs at an optimal level. Perhaps nowhere is this more important than within the healthcare industry, where an inefficient piece of equipment can prevent physicians from providing high-quality medical treatment. From imaging systems to patient monitoring equipment, keeping these machines performing requires a high-quality data storage device capable of quickly processing and transferring information. Panasonic’s Industrial-grade SD Cards offer the latest in NAND flash memory, offering a combination of unparalleled performance and reliability.
With speed and durability to spare, Panasonic’s latest line of industrial SD Cards are ideal for supporting critical medical equipment. Depending on the storage needs of a given machine, these single-level cell devices have capacities ranging from 2GB up to 16GB. When working with highly sensitive hardware, however, performance typically trumps storage. That is why these SD Cards feature lightning fast read/write speeds reaching up to 95 MB/s and 35 MB/s, respectively. With this level of functionality, vital medical devices such as blood analyzers, DNA micro array synthesizers and automatic nursing-care systems will continue running optimally. If administrators do not implement the best flash memory available, this machinery may begin exhibiting worrisome performance issues including excessive lag times.
Invest for long-term performance
Sensitive and complex medical equipment can come with a steep price tag, driving the need for long-term hardware investments in this industry. In addition, replacing defective or inoperable components can be a time-consuming process requiring a great degree of high-tech skill and experience to execute properly. For organizations that install an industrial-strength Panasonic SD Card, new equipment investments can often be delayed for the foreseeable future as these devices will continue operating effectively for years on end.
One of the product line’s most enticing features is its static wear leveling functionality. Some poorly constructed flash-based memory devices have relatively short shelf lives as they use up their storage blocks too quickly. Static wear leveling offers more durability and extends the life span of a solid state drive by using those blocks more efficiently.
Because of the various options available in the SD Card market, it’s not always easy to identify the best device for a given machine. For instance, some products are only compatible with equipment of a certain speed class. To get the most value and performance out of their SD Cards, healthcare officials will need to ensure that they have been designed to interface effectively with the corresponding hardware. Going through a trusted and experienced data storage vendor such as DIGISTOR can clear up much of the confusion in this regard.
DIGISTOR’s team of technicians are ready and willing to work with organizations to determine which tool is right for the job. With the support of DIGISTOR’s expert staff, healthcare officials can rest easy knowing their investments will not be wasted on ineffective or poor-performing devices.
