Medical Devices with One-second Data and OS Restoration from Apacer and Onyx Healthcare

Jun 22, 2021

Apacer, a world leader in industrial storage and memory, has teamed up with Onyx Healthcare to integrate Apacer’s CoreSnapshot one-second OS and data recovery technology into medical-grade devices. The results of this collaboration are products that cut costs associated with manual repairs while helping keep hospitals running according to schedule. 

Quick access to secure data within medical devices is a key component in the accurate diagnosis and treatment of a disease. Sudden downtime caused by a blue screen of death (BSoD) may bring risks to medical institutions, such as interruption of medical services. These can negatively affect diagnosis efficiency, delaying the timing of diagnosis and treatment, and in some cases leading to unnecessary medical disputes. Dean Lin, product manager of Onyx’s Intelligent Clinics Dept., speaking on behalf of Onyx, pointed out that medical care services often find themselves in a race against time. Medical devices equipped with CoreSnapshot technology are like an emergency room for data, which can greatly reduce the waiting time for troubleshooting. The risk of incorrect diagnosis or disruption of medical procedures is greatly minimized.

Apacer’s CoreSnapshot technology is now integrated into some of Onyx’s medical devices. If an OS crash occurs, the operator can press an embedded hardware button to immediately execute the SSD recovery mechanism. The data and OS will be restored to their backup state in less than one second, and the device will immediately returns to normal operation. Onyx’s medical devices use a version of CoreSnapshot technology which is equipped with an AES-256 SSD hardware encryption algorithm to prevent patient data and medical records from being exposed to the threat of improper external access. 

Jerry Hsu, project manager of Apacer’s Industrial Storage Application Department, said that this collaboration brings together Onyx’s medical industry experience and Apacer’s R&D capabilities in storage technology, and helps prove Apacer’s commitment to “adding value, enhancing collaboration.” Since CoreSnapshot is for users to back up and recover their SSD in one second, it will be the best solution to be considered in medical nursing carts in screening stations, medical PCs and tablets, as well as mobile medical tablets, assisting with medical imaging diagnosis, patient monitoring, and electronic medical record inquiries.
