Salem Health

Salem Health delivers exceptional, essential healthcare services with Commvault.

  • The Result
  • FASTERbackup and recovery
  • BETTERsearch for legal and e-discovery requests
  • REDUCEDstorage costs


    With the number of patient visits on the rise, Salem Health needed a faster, more cost-effective backup and data management solution that could handle its explosive data growth — while keeping as much data on-premises as possible. It also needed an easier way to search across its backup data to quickly comply with legal and e-discovery requests.

At a glance

Data management by the numbers (through 2015):

  • More than 100,000 patients seen per year
  • More than 170,500 imaging procedures per year


  • Working with Commvault, dedup rate increased 500%


Commvault software provided a cost-effective data management solution that could meet Salem Health’s performance and compliance requirements.


  • Improved system performance with enhanced search functions for legal and compliance data
  • Ten times faster write and recovery over legacy software on same tape library
  • Increased deduplication rate by five times that of legacy system
  • Reduced storage and maintenance costs

“Working with Commvault has vastly improved our performance. On the same tape library we were using with our previous software, we’re now getting ten times better write and recovery. Our deduplication rate has also increased fivefold, which has lowered our storage costs. We’re paying less maintenance for 80 terabytes than we were for 30.”
