Backup University Hospital Policlinico Umberto I’s Hyper-V VMs


Policlinico Umberto I: Europe's Largest Occupied Area Hospital

A national and highly specialized healthcare company, home to a level II DEA (Department of Emergency, Urgency and Acceptance). It is a complex structure within which research, training, and assistance activities are inextricably intertwined.

It comes out with 1,235 beds, 4,700 employees, traffic of 20,000 people per day, 41,000 hospitalizations per year, 24,000 patients welcomed in day hospitals, 1,000,000 services per year including instrumental diagnostics and medical visits, 900,000 laboratory tests, 20,000 investigations of pathological anatomy in one year and as many radiological investigations, 140,000 annual visits to the Emergency and Reception Department. These are the impressive numbers that give the measure of the grandeur and liveliness of Umberto I, the Roman polyclinic par excellence.

As the reference hospital of the Faculties of “Medicine and Dentistry” and “Pharmacy and Medicine” of the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, is home to the teaching center which organizes 5 master’s degree courses in “Medicine and Surgery” and “Dentistry and Dental Prosthetics”. It also carries out important training functions for degree courses for the healthcare professions and specialization schools.





Seeks High-Performance Storage Solution for Hyper-V Cluster Backups with Veeam

Policlinico Umberto I needs a fast and secure storage device to back up the Virtual Machines of their Hyper-V cluster by snapshots with VEEAM every 15 minutes, using FC protocol, in a repository that could grant high availability, sustained performance, and minimum latency.


Seamless Scalability, Robust Data Security, and High Performance


QSAN XF3126D solution makes it easy for Policlinico Umberto I hospital to meet capacity, data security, and performance needs. The XEVO operating system is intuitive and easy to be managed, meanwhile, the redundant architecture of the XF3126D grants the high availability that is necessary for a critical application like the Hyper-V cluster.

The choice of QSAN XF3126D with QSAN NVMe SSDs was also driven by the need to adopt a storage system that could be highly scalable in the future without having to face excessive costs or compatibility issues with third-party drives.






Utility Maximized to the Health Care Center

Supports data growth cost-effectively for years to come

  • 99.9999% high availability

Back up Sensitive Data

  • Great performance
  • Minimal latency is crucial to achieving an overall sub-1 millisecond latency in practical use


"We needed a storage device that could grant us high-availability and sustained performances with high IOPS and low latency to backup the VMs of our Hyper-V cluster with VEEAM snapshots. QSAN's NVMe all-flash array XF3126D met all our requirements."
