A hospital uses an application that stores patient X-ray data

A hospital uses an application that stores patient X-ray data in the form of large binary objects in an Oracle database. The application is hosted on a UNIX server, and the hospital staff accesses the X-ray records through a Gigabit Ethernet backbone. Storage array provides storage to the UNIX server, which has 6 terabytes of usable capacity.
Explain the core elements of the data center. What are the typical challenges the storage management team may face in meeting the service-level demands of the hospital staff?
Describe how the value of this patient data might change over time.
