Pinnacle Ventures takes general practice data into the AWS cloud
General practice innovation organisation Pinnacle Ventures has completed a quick-fire move of 30 years of general practice data to the public cloud, building a data lake using Amazon Web Services' (AWS) simple storage service (S3) and massively reducing the price it pays for data storage and handling.
Pinnacle Ventures, which is based in Hamilton in New Zealand and manages the data and IT services for the Pinnacle Midlands Health Network PHO, has used a SQL Server model of managing data for a number of years.
However, a visit to the AWS re:Invent cloud conference in Las Vegas last November saw the company decide to move from infrastructure that while adequate, required a lot of manual processing and was increasingly time consuming.
