Load balancing Intelerad IntelePACS
IntelePACS provides a platform for storing, retrieving and routing medical images. Combining secure communications and compression technology, IntelePACS ensures image and data integrity, while providing high-availability of images at any time, from any location, and for any case. IntelePACs provides integrations support for InteleRIS, or third-party HIS, RIS and EMR solutions as well as InteleViewer, an intuitive, feature-rich DICOM viewer.
Key benefits of load balancing
In environments where study volume is ever increasing, clustering multiple load balanced IntelePACS servers provides organizations with a solution that is:
- highly available
Loadbalancer.org specializes at delivering ultra-reliable, scalable medical imaging applications. In an industry where uptime saves lives, our extensive experience means we can design unbreakable solutions to enterprise imaging’s unique challenges.
How to load balance IntelePACS
A typical deployment combines fast, highly available storage with unrestricted retrieval of images using our ultra-fast Layer 4 Direct Routing DR Mode, sometimes referred to as Direct Server Return (DSR). This is a very high-performance solution that requires little change to your existing infrastructure. It is also possible to load balance an IntelePACS server deployment using Layer 7 SNAT Mode. This mode might be preferable if making changes to the real servers is not possible. Due to the increased amount of information at layer 7, performance is not as fast as at layer 4.
By utilizing Layer 4 DR our entry level, Enterprise R20, is capable of environments of up to 500k studies/year. For anything larger than this then our Enterprise 10G offers an infinitely scalable solution at an unbelievably reasonable price-point.
