Ashion Analytics Streamlines Compliance, Simplifies Management, and Cuts Costs

Ashion Analytics provides personalized options for cancer treatment. The company leverages years of scientific and clinical experience, and it offers a wide range of testing capabilities to assist physicians, health systems, research, and commercial partners in providing precision cancer treatments.

Pass Compliance Audits with Less Effort and Lower Cost

Recently, regulators have increased their focus on disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity, in part because of the sharp rise in security threats such as ransomware. For Ashion Analytics, a clinical lab that provides genomic assessments for cancer testing, meeting compliance requirements for CAP, CLIA, HIPAA, and GDPR contributed to additional expense. “Companies like Ashion Analytics are falling under increased regulatory scrutiny, so we needed to ensure that there were no gaps in our business continuity and DR capabilities,” said Kevin Campbell, Vice President of IT Operations. “It triggered a fiscal concern and layered burden on the IT team.” Ashion Analytics needed a new approach that would streamline the compliance process, simplify IT management processes, and cut costs at the same time.

Datrium DRaaS Brings Simplicity to Compliance and Continuity

The key advantage of Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS was simplicity. “It’s a cloud-native design with built-in backup, and the ability to deliver one-click, instant recovery. We were skeptical until we really put it through its paces and saw how it would bridge the gaps in our DR coverage – at a fraction of the cost of alternatives,” Mr. Campbell said.

The Datrium platform also simplified the compliance process. “It enabled us to provide a report to auditors that showed what we tested, how we tested, and the results of those tests. The process is painless, and it’s easy to walk through an orchestration or a runbook.”

Ashion achieved these results using DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS:

  • Faster, simpler compliance with CAP, CLIA, HIPAA, and GDPR
  • Cut costs 50% by eliminating secondary DR sites
  • Achieved instant RTO and an RPO of less than 4 hours
  • Enhanced ransomware protection with tamperproof built-in backups for all virtual workloads
  • Replaced complex infrastructure with an easy-to-manage system

“The business benefit for Ashion Analytics, and the real return on our investment in the Datrium platform, is that we are now able to do business with a larger set of customers with heavier audit requirements.”
