UK hospital operator Nuffield Health is implementing a private cloud architecture as part of an ongoing strategy to consolidate and centralise its IT services. The charity, which operates 31 private hospitals around the UK, has been on an "infrastructure journey" in the last 12 months, interim enterprise architect Mike Rowland told Information Age, moving from decentralised, physical hardware to central, virtualised services.
"We decided our legacy platform was no longer fit for purpose," he explained. "As a charity, we have quite a lean IT operation, so we need to have a flexible, easy to manage IT infrastructure."
