How to load balance GE Healthcare Centricity
A typical deployment uses our ultra-fast Layer 4 Direct Routing DR Mode – sometimes referred to as Direct Server Return (DSR) – to combine fast, highly available storage with unrestricted image retrieval. This high-performance solution requires little change to your existing infrastructure.
A GE Centricity server deployment can also be load balanced with Layer 7 SNAT Mode, which might be preferable if real servers cannot be changed. Performance is not as fast as at layer 4, due to the increased amount of information at layer 7.
By utilizing Layer 4 DR mode, our entry-level Enterprise 1G easily handles environments of up to 500k studies/year. For anything larger, our Enterprise 10G offers an infinitely scalable solution at an unbelievable price-point.
