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 Lexmark Healthcare
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 Sectra PACS 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 R20 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.
Having partnered with top-tier healthcare vendors, Loadbalancer.org brings expert consultancy and support to all of our deployments. Our extensive experience in Enterprise Imaging means that we understand the challenges you face, and are ready to meet them with tried-and-tested solutions.
