Mandamus is Meta Fsuion's ultra-reliable on-line archive service. You can remotely back up and archive your medical information to Mandamus, and retrieve your medical information from it. Meta Fusion operates and maintains Mandamus, which is a distributed fault-tolerant state of the art on-line 24x7 archive service. All you need is a connection from your PACS and/or information system(s) to Mandamus, and you can begin backing up and archiving your medical information.


Mandamus is a sophisticated and super-scalable on-line store. Mandamus exists redundantly, which means that if one Mandamus is destroyed, there is at least one other mirror image of it that will take over immediately, without allowing the destruction of one Mandamus to affect its users. Meta Fusion recommends the use of its MetaStrand broadband connection load-balancer to provide you with maximum risk coverage in maintaining connectivity with mandamus and serving your users.


Mandamus's design benefits from Meta Fusion's experience in the design and operation of high-reliability real-time on-line systems serving millions of users. While system failures, disasters, security breaches, and unusual scenarios causing unexpected effects are thoughts that most of people would like to avoid, Meta Fusion's staff love to think about these subjects and analyze them in great depth, and devise ways of avoiding and coping with each of these possibilities for each system and each integration. With this enthusiasm and ability in fault-tolerancet and reliability engineering and operation, Meta Fusion offers can offer you relaible products and services that we confidently stand behind.


Mandamus operates on the top ranked backbones in the nation, with connections ranging from OC48s (2.4 Gbps) to gigabit ethernet (1,000 Mbps) connecting its ISP's' core routers at several major exchange points including: PAIX Palo Alto, CA , Equinix San Jose, CA , Equinix Ashburn, VA , MAE-West San Jose, CA , MAE-East Vienna, VA , AADS Chicago, IL , NYIIX New York, NY .
Our self-healing network architecture virtually eliminates a single point of failure. In addition to our own backbone, we also purchase backup transit from multiple providers in multiple locations to ensure that your data will arrive via the shortest possible routes. Because of our backup transit and the many international peers, our network maintains the shortest routes for sending your data all over the world. On an ongoing basis, we are negotiating with the top fiber carriers for new routes, additional backup transit providers, and we are signing on new peering relationships.

Hurricane Electric's switched network utilizes the Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGP4) over Cisco 12000 series GSR routers. We always update the router's IOS after we have stress tested the latest IOS on a non-critical router, to make sure it is very stable. The switch that your equipment will ultimately be connected to is connected back to a core router via fiber.

Hurricane Electric has one of the friendliest peering policies in the industry. We will peer with any network that is connected to one or more of the exchange points that we have in common.

The MetaStore 3002 is a dual-everything redundant DICOM and EMR store with a minimum 3 Terrabytes of primary high-performance reliable on-line storage and multi-network connectivity for access from anywhere, protected by world-class security. Meta Fusion's leading fault-tolerance architecture is put to work in engineering an expandible on-line store that provides the raw materials for a 5-9 rating in availability, which is generally considered as the highest uptime rating in the real-time on-line information systems industry. Meta Fusion brings the best from this very demanding world to your healthcare facility for uninterrupted operation of your routine and life-critical business.


The MetaStore 3002 provides excellent value as the DICOM image store for your PACS image distribution and archive needs. The MetaStore can be operated as a zero-mainenance image repository, accepting studies from diverse modalities. Meta Fusion's support and rapid response is included in your ownership of this enterprise-class system, The MetaStore is designed to support multiple facilities and multitudes of user accounts, because the Meta Fusion storage architecture requires that our storage devices be capable of precision collaboration without being limited by geographic location. Thus, your MetaStore can in principle reside anywhere. We can deploy it into your location, or outside of it, or you can rely on us to deploy it in one of our facilities and manage and operate it for you. As a rule, we recommend a hybrid approach to deployment, consisting of a MetaStore deployment into your facility, and a MetaArchive deployment in one of our facilities.


The deployment of the MetaStore can be carefully tuned to take into account your network infrastructure and topology, including throughput, usage, and existing security. While Meta Fusion recommends the deployment of our imaging networks for your PACS, teleradiology and infrastructure needs, Meta Fusion offers other storage solutions that can implement best practices in enterprise resource management and limit your expenses. For example, the MetaProxy product line

provides your network with edge storage elements used for securely caching images, thus offering a way of reducing network traffic on certain network segments when many users on those segments request images from the primary MetaStore.


At the heart of the MetaStore 3002 is Meta Fusion's proprietary fault-tolerance recipe that is derived from our experience in building systems that are located in remote locations and designed to be used reliably by millions of users daily over the internet. Unlike most PACS providers, the Meta Fusion storage architecture does not consider "RAID" and fashions in the storage industry to be the magic recipes for reliable operation. Instead, Meta Fusion's storage offerings are inspired by an architecture that builds on detailed analyses and models of faults, failures and disasters, and includes accounting for non-conformant behavior under stress or in extreme conditions. By not limiting our focus and our models to hardware unreliability, and software bugs, but also including processes, business practices and human errors, a superior more relaible product results. The MetaStore family embodies these advantages.


All of the Meta Fusion storage products are designed for hostile environments, expecting attacks and attempts at unauthorized access. Just because you may be a healthcare provider that helps the needy and acts to benefit society and people does not protect you from malicious attacks on the information super-highway. Your systems have to be secure and attack-hardened, including automatic responses to certain intrusions to control the impact of the most aggressive attackers These security designs and technologies are well-suited to HIPAA, and the MetaStore family is able to provide these benefits to your business.
