NSW Health will enable its data centres to use public and private cloud technologies as it moves forward with its long-awaited data centre reform project. The department has advertised for a director of data centre reform to lead the consolidation of three existing data centres into two, "enabling their use of ... cloud technologies while maintaining service availability".
The data centre reform project is described as a "key enabler" for a range of e-health initiatives planned by the state department. In particular, it will determine the core infrastructure that underpins a "secure system of personally controlled electronic health records", the advertisement noted.
