What Is Cloud Backup?

Cloud backup is a way to save reports, data, and imaging on another platform to make sure you always have a backup foundation to prevent losing it forever in the event of an IT crisis. Cloud backup also helps imaging informatics remain safe and available at all times.


Types of Cloud Backup Solutions

There are various different types of cloud backup solutions to keep all of your information safe. If you’re a healthcare provider in the Seattle or Spokane area, Nuvodia offers the following cloud backup solutions:

Public Cloud Backup

This way copies data directly to cloud infrastructure providers. Infrastructure providers can include Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). Because these cloud providers are public, it can come at a lower cost with a greater risk.

On-Premise, Internal Cloud Backup

This option is costlier but it is private cloud backup behind your own firewall, meaning you have complete control over internal data. Companies using this option still have to pay for hosting, servers, infrastructure and security.

Disk-to-Disk-to-Cloud Backup or Hybrid

This type of backup means that some information will be stored on-premise, some information will be stored on the cloud, and some information may be stored both ways. The different approach to a backup in this instance is appealing, however, it calls for greater risks.

With your information stored in various places, there can be heightened risks for data breaching. All of your on-premise applications must have enough data capacity. Local backups can lead to missing data. It must be managed well.

Hosted, Private Cloud

A hosted, third-party private cloud backup is the more budget-friendly version of the on premise internal cloud backup.Companies using this option get a private cloud and do not have to pay for hosting, servers, infrastructure and security.

Hosted, private clouds allow for data encryption, automated backups, regular management testing, and eliminates costs with a monthly subscription.

How To Move To A Cloud Backup Solution

To move to a cloud backup solution, you must have a cloud migration strategy. First, you want to assess your applications and workloads to see if you’ll be making any changes, keeping it as it, or creating a new workload. This is the part where the health care company will need to prioritize and organize which applications are ready to be moved and which are not.

Next, you will develop a business case that will help you make the shift of capital expenditures to operational expenses, cost savings, faster speed of deployment, elasticity, etc.

Then, you develop a technical approach to see what kind of software you have and which ones you will use. Ex. IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) or SaaS (Software as a Service).

Fourth, you want to adopt a flexible integration model and address the requirements needed. These requirements can include compliance, security, and privacy.

Finally, you want to manage the application cloud migration process. This is the why, what, and how plan that Nuvodia can step in to help you execute.

Reviews & Testimonials

Great communication. The Nuvodia Team has been really helpful. They are so responsive and easy to get in touch with when issues ever arise!

Holly Ingram, Radiology Director - Charleston, West Virginia

Choosing Nuvodia was one of the best business decisions we’ve made. They’re fast, responsive and passionate about what they do. Nuvodia actually exceeded our expectations in terms of the level of service they provide. They’re wonderful to work with.

Candace Walsh, Chief Financial Officer - Othello, Washington

In 2004 we implemented a new Mysis VisionPM solution that required interfaces for orders, scheduling and billing charges. Among the many vendors involved, Nuvodia was unsurpassed, their HL7 integration expertise, flexibility and customer service focus drove the success of our integration effort.

David Holland, Director of Ancillary Services - Seattle, Washington

With Nuvodia, we get the whole package. The technology, the people, the industry knowledge, and the support.

Marc Simmons, Director of Diagnostic Imaging - Moses Lake, Washington

If we wanted to administer PACS internally, and have the ability to provide 24×7 support and the current technical knowledge to manage and maintain not only the software, but also the hardware and network, we would need an IT team of at least four to five people. For a small facility like ours, it is simply not feasible. The PACS support from Nuvodia has been fantastic. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give our experience with Nuvodia a 10.

Heather Myers, Director of Radiology Services - Atlanta, Georgia

Many businesses typically don’t have the number of people or breadth of expertise they need for their internal IT staff. Nuvodia is an excellent option. At Cascade Windows, my former employer, Nuvodia was able to provide scalable, affordable services – from hosted IT services to telephone systems – that we would not have been able to achieve in house. Every step along the way, they were very customer-service oriented and responsive, and they always delivered.

Lawrence Berry, Owner - Spokane, Washington

Nuvodia hosts the network for our electronic health records and practice management systems. They provide the best level of technical support and customer service in Spokane, giving our organization access to the expertise and infrastructure we could not afford to bring in house.

Melanie Sims, CEO - Spokane, Washington

Nathan was able to provide me the exact information I needed to relay to the modality vendor very quickly. He also went above and beyond when I did not receive good technical support from that vendor to try to help solve the issue himself. Great customer service!

Celia Hudson, Radiology Director - Manistique, Michigan

Nuvodia is always amazing. What an amazing company and your teamwork is on point! Thank you all very much.

Alexis Frazier, PACS Administrator - San Antonio, Texas

I cannot say thanks enough to the Nuvodia support team for all of the your help you have given. You guys have all been fantastic and very nice to work with. It’s been a complicated mess and your team has been great. Thank you for being patient!

Olive Stone, IT Director - Winfield, Kansas
