How to load balance Philips HCIS
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 Philips HCIS server deployment can also be load balanced with Layer 7 SNAT Mode, which might be preferable if real servers cannot be changed. With Layer 7, you get to implement smarter load-balancing decisions giving you greater flexibility.
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.
