There are a myriad of technologies offering different approaches to data protection, application availability, high availability and disaster recovery. These technologies typically have at least one thing in common: they are IT-based solutions that are built to protect assets often relying on the cloud and duplicated data. But there is another situation not readily addressed by existing solutions – when a building is damaged beyond functioning yet communications and data access must continue, such as a hospital or a command-and-control center in a disaster area; or a rescue operation must remain functional in the most remote regions.
In these critical situations, the Acromove ServerPacktm can be the lifeline to a stricken population. ServerPacktm is completely weatherproof, runs for over 6 hours on internal batteries, and can tap any external DC power source including solar panels. It is a powerful computing platform with optional built-in WiFi, an Integrated 2Ghz/5Ghz access point with DHCP server together with sophisticated bandwidth management bundled with a three port Gigabit Ethernet switch. There is also an optional GSM/GPS tracker that pinpoints its location from a remote tracking center.
A hospital can run all its applications directly on the ServerPacktm, since any Linux or Windows Server operating system can be installed, and with 120TB of RAID protected storage entire databases and sensitive records can be stored as backup copies. If power goes out, and even if the backup generators malfunction or run out of fuel, ServerPacktm can still be running to deliver emergency services while accessing critical data in the cloud.
When working with sensitive patient data outside of a secure server environment, it is necessary to use encryption on all files to protect HIPAA rights, even in an emergency. Acromove and OSNexus have built a secure Software Defined Storage NAS system that has an entire array of security features including AES-256 encryption, ZFS file system, an easy-to-use Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) protocol called Advanced User Security, and Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP). All data transfers through Ethernet use SSL/TLS 1.2 with strong ciphers.
