Located in the heart of Kitchener, Ontario, St. Mary’s General Hospital is the second-largest acute care hospital in the St. Joseph’s Health System and a Regional Cardiac Care Centre. The hospital proudly serves the residents of Waterloo, Wellington County with an extended reach to Dufferin, Grey-Bruce and beyond. St. Mary’s provides excellent, compassionate care to hundreds of thousands of patients and families in their core areas of clinical focus.
With its nearly 2 000 staff, physicians and volunteers, the healthcare provider currently backs up 96 to 100 terabytes of data to approximately 160 virtual machines and physical servers. Until recently, St. Mary’s made use of tape backups until a vendor of the hospital, who was using Stage2Data for their backup needs, referred the IT, Infrastructure and Information Security Manager to Jon Darling, Stage2Data’s Senior Account Manager.
