Press Release: Medibank Health Solutions (MHS)

HP today announced that Medibank Health Solutions (MHS) has selected HP Converged Infrastructure to deliver efficient, cost-effective healthcare services to a growing number of customers.


MHS provides telephone- and web-based healthcare services as well as walk-in wellness clinics for organizations across Australia. After being acquired by Medibank Private, Australia’s largest private insurance company, MHS experienced rapid growth, resulting in a five-fold increase in staff and greater demand for its services. However, MHS’ existing IT infrastructure was unable to meet performance and availability requirements associated with this upswing in demand.


MHS worked with HP Premier Partner Triforce Australia to deploy HP VirtualSystem as part of an HP Converged Infrastructure architecture in a new data center. HP VirtualSystem is a flexible, scalable and preconfigured virtualization solution. By pre-integrating HP 3PAR Storage, HP BladeSystem servers and HP Virtual Connect technology, the solution enables MHS to allocate resources easily across physical and virtual environments to ensure predictable delivery and service levels. As a result, MHS can rapidly provision storage based on changing network workloads while quickly delivering new services customers need.


“Our business was growing at such speed that our infrastructure quickly met its limitations, resulting in capacity and performance issues,” said Charles Gonzalez, head of Infrastructure Services, Medibank Health Solutions. “The flexibility, scalability and ease of management provided by our HP Converged Infrastructure allow us to keep pace with our business growth.”
