Archiving DICOS data from security audits in the ORCA® Cloud

The cloud archiving of security-relevant data from digital imaging and communication is a sensitive topic in the security industry.
Cloud solutions have already proven themselves in industrial non-destructive testing (NDT). However, a special cloud also enables you to simplify your IT infrastructure in the security sector - taking into account the highest security standards.

With our ORCA Cloud (Oehm und Rehbein Cloud Archiving), there are many options for making processes simpler, more cost-effective and more advanced. With ORCA it is possible to centrally archive DICOS images and documents on European servers. This cloud supports you, for example, in the management of material-specific information as well as the tracking of trace recognition signatures and allows for a central threat assessment in compliance with all rules and procedures, which we can customize for you. You only pay for the capacities that are actually used (pay per use). The storage space can be individually adapted to current needs.

With ORCA Archive you can archive X-ray images directly from the mobile X-ray scanner, from a security X-ray system or from any image management software in the cloud. This archive solution can also be used as additional backup. The images in the cloud can be viewed in full resolution and quality (DICOS) with the browser-based viewer integrated in ORCA (ORCA View) or our image management software dicosPACS® wherever there is Internet access. If another PACS is available, it is possible to download the images from ORCA to the respective computer in order to view them in your own viewer.

The ORCA Cloud can be individually adapted to your needs and your corporate design.
