Intelligent Data Server for Medical Hospital Surgery Solution
A high profile medical integrator in North America needed a hospital data
system that included cloud-based services, surgical robots, medical devices, and
control towers. In the surgical ward, clinical data from patients needed to be
collected from medical devices and stored in the hospital’s cloud. In the surgery
room, clinical data was more complex than in a surgical ward. Most of the data
in the surgery rooms was video based and included images captured from a
surgical robot. After acquiring the videos, a control tower would provide
analysis and deliver it to the surgeon’s control center for doctors to make accurate
The main brain in the data system was the control tower, which dispatches
assignments to different servers to complete complex analysis and data
visualization. The control tower needed three systems: the control computer, a video
analysis system, and a video storage system. The control computer needed to
have high performance computing power and Ethernet to communicate and
coordinate between sub systems. The video analysis system needed smart video capabilities
to capture video and visualize information. The video storage system needed to
have plenty of storage to capture the massive amounts of video data so a RAID (Redundant
Array of Independent Disks) system was configured to add reliability.
The video analysis
system was based on Advantech’s HPC-7400 + ASMB-815 + NVIDIA Quadro P5000 GPU
card. The video analysis system needed to deal with massive amounts of
collected data captured from the surgical robots, and displayed on the surgeon’s
bridge. The system was based on a 4U height server chassis with high
performance Intel Xeon® scalable
ATX server board and GPU cards that dynamically allocated GPU resources for
graphics and compute-intensive tasks as needed.
Advantech’s HPC-8212 + ASMB-786G4 + NVIDIA
Quadro P2000 GPU card was suitable for the video storage server needs as it was
based on a 2U storage server chassis adapted with 12 x 3.5" drives. The
server board used was an LGA 1151
Intel® 8th Generation Core™ Xeon platform with a NVIDIA Quadro P2000 GPU card
that increased bandwidth by up to 20% - reducing the amount of data fetched
from memory for each frame.
- High performance CPU computing power with the latest Intel server platform.
- PCIe expansion capability for multiple GPU cards.
- Easy configuration with flexible chassis dimensions and server-board options.
- 5-year extended warranty and product longevity of up to 7 years.
The medical server
application required a high performance and flexible system. Advantech’s
product manufacturing capability was flexible enough for any possible customization.
Advantech’s HPC series provided a 1U to 4U server chassis and the ASMB series provided
Micro ATX and EATX form factor boards. The hospital got their intelligent data
server with all the performance and expansion requirements they needed. Advantech
was not only able to provide flexible product options to the customer; we
continuously provided support for up to 5~7 years with extended warranties.
