BridgeHead Receives HP AllianceOne 2014 Partner of the Year Award in Category of Storage

BridgeHead Solution with HP StoreOnce Catalyst Software Delivers Flexible, Affordable Deduplication to Hospitals

ASHTEAD, England – BridgeHead Software, a leader in healthcare data management, today announced that it has been awarded an HP AllianceOne Partner of the Year Award for 2014 in the category of Storage. The award recognizes BridgeHead’s integration of HP Converged Storage solutions into its Healthcare Data Management (HDM) platform for hospitals, including its addition this past year of deduplication, which embeds HP StoreOnce Catalyst software.

In addition, BridgeHead Software was inducted as a charter member of the new HP Data Agile Program, a specialized program under the AllianceOne umbrella, which was announced this week.

The HP AllianceOne Partner of the Year Awards recognize outstanding accomplishments by their partners in the development and delivery of innovative HP-based solutions that raise the standard for business excellence and client satisfaction. Winners are chosen for delivering solutions that drive meaningful business results. BridgeHead has met these benchmarks and exemplified qualities that HP seeks in an AllianceOne Partner of the Year.

“BridgeHead Software and HP have a long and productive partnership that has resulted in compelling data management solutions for the healthcare market,” said Tony Cotterill, chief product officer at BridgeHead Software. “Our collaboration and innovation has helped develop new ways for hospitals to store, protect and share their data.”

BridgeHead Software solutions leveraging HP Converged Storage include the following healthcare data management solutions:

BridgeHead’s MEDITECH ISB and IDR Backup software, combined with HP Converged Medical Infrastructure, helps to ensure healthcare data availability by delivering proven, comprehensive backup and disaster recovery capabilities. Hospitals can benefit from the combined use of BridgeHead software with HP StoreOnce Backup and HP 3PAR StoreServ solutions to gain optimized protection and storage of MEDITECH data.

BridgeHead Deduplication for Backup and Recovery includes HP StoreOnce Catalyst software embedded in the BridgeHead HDM platform. Ideally suited for hospitals that need to move some or all of their backup copies to a remote Disaster Recovery (DR) location, BridgeHead’s deduplication uses HP StoreOnce Backup with Catalyst to help lower storage costs and administrative burdens while simultaneously freeing up floor space in the primary data center. This solution was introduced to benefit BridgeHead HDM customers, like Mary Rutan Hospital. The hospital recently selected the solution to reduce their cost of storage and enable disaster recovery by reducing network requirements for transmitting data over wide-area networks (WAN).

"Congratulations to BridgeHead on their HP AllianceOne Partner of the Year award for Storage,” said Doug Oathout, vice president, Global Marketing, SMB and Alliances, Enterprise Marketing, HP. “BridgeHead has demonstrated outstanding dedication and expertise in addressing the business and technology needs of its customers by helping them obtain economical, flexible and secure data storage solutions."
