Secure solution enables healthcare companies to leverage Kubernetes
technology to rapidly develop healthcare technology applications while
remaining compliant with industry standards.
AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ClearDATA®,
a leading healthcare cloud, security and compliance expert, today
announced its Kubernetes solution for healthcare and life sciences
organizations across multiple cloud platforms, including Amazon Web
Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Integrated into
ClearDATA’s Compliance Dashboard, healthcare organizations can leverage
Kubernetes to enable the use of cutting-edge container technology while
viewing the state of compliance against HIPAA, GxP, General Data
Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other common standards and regulations.
In addition to improving scalability and efficiency, the new offering
promises healthcare developers a secure way to develop, deploy and scale
applications while minimizing risk.
“While containers are not new, having a fully-managed way of deploying
compliant containers in the cloud using Kubernetes is groundbreaking and
we are excited for healthcare organizations to take advantage of this
game-changing technology,” said Matt Ferrari, ClearDATA Chief Technology
Officer. “With ClearDATA’s newest solution, healthcare organizations can
harness the capabilities of Kubernetes without having to worry about the
security risks associated with open source, public hosted environments,
thereby making healthcare delivery faster and more effective.”
With the new Kubernetes offering, ClearDATA solves one of the largest
challenges in healthcare IT around time-to-deployment. Using ClearDATA’s
Automated Safeguards for Kubernetes, healthcare organizations have
access to the container orchestration to dynamically deploy new
containers on demand, monitor the health of each container for threats
and seamlessly roll back faulty application updates to a previous
version, avoid system-wide downtime and ensure secure continuous access
to patient data.
Benefits of Kubernetes for Healthcare and Life Sciences:
“At CareCloud, we look to bring the best of cloud technologies across
multiple service providers in a way that is seamless for our users while
ensuring compliance objectives are met across the board. ClearDATA’s
Kubernetes offering allows my team to work with the container of the
future across multiple clouds,” said Bill McIver, VP Technical
Operations, CareCloud and ClearDATA customer. “This lets us be strategic
when architecting our services, performance and pricing across cloud
platforms. It also assures us that we have continuous round the clock
support and expertise from ClearDATA, which allows us to focus on
delivering providers and patients with the best possible healthcare
technology solutions. We’re excited about Kubernetes – it’s efficient,
fast and easy, and with ClearDATA, it’s secure.”
Like CareCloud, many in healthcare are moving to containerized apps. According
to Gartner Research, more than 50 percent of global organizations
will be running containerized applications in production by 2020, up
from less than 20 percent today. Using ClearDATA’s multi-cloud
Kubernetes solution provides key benefits for healthcare organizations
in the public cloud including:
Improved deployment, agility and efficiency to save time and
avoid reconfiguration while staying within regulatory frameworks.
Reduced risk of exposed patient data while taking advantage of
Kubernetes’ increasingly rich landscape for innovation.
Increased cost savings and automation drives efficiency
and speeds time to market.

certification, a comprehensive Business Associate Agreement (BAA), a
compliance dashboard with real time auditable data visualizations and
