A compliant device on a public cloud service
We wanted to avoid costly and time-consuming datacentre infrastructure to fit within the timeline and budget. Using a public cloud service meant that it would only take minutes to start a custom cloud infrastructure, there would not be any capital expenditure and the ongoing cost would only depend on usage.
Public cloud services also provide security and a privacy compliance framework which could help reduce development and running cost. However, having a public cloud service does not mean that a medical device will be compliant. Even if the device connectivity was built on top of the framework, we still needed to define the data structure, manage the users’ identity and credentials, and control the data accessibility for individual users in order to make the device compliant to relevant standards such as GDPR.
