Case Study: Orlando Health

Healthcare Requires Contemporary Design that Provides an Estimated 30% Savings in Cooling Efficiency

Perhaps more than any other industry today, healthcare is in a state of extraordinary transition. For Orlando Health, a comprehensive, private and non-profit healthcare network in Central Florida, this transition included a shift towards electronic medical records (EMR) and patient billing.

To ensure reliability in a more robust network infrastructure to support this shift, Orlando Health called upon Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI) to help create an innovative, state-of-the-art data centre that supports healthcare reform in the realm of digital data.

Building a new data centre that could not only handle this expansion, but dependably manage such a high volume of data on a consistent basis meant Orlando Health needed to ensure a variety of key variables in optimal data centre build and maintenance - chief among them - thermal management.

To tackle the issue of cooling, Orlando Health implemented a contemporary design using CPI's glacier white TeraFrame® F-Series Cabinets equipped with Vertical Exhaust Ducts, which allowed hot air to be directed out of the cabinet and into an isolated return air path above the drop ceiling (not to mention decreasing lighting costs thanks to the white cabinets). This isolation approach also allowed Orlando Health to replace a previous raised floor design with slab flooring, allowing CPI cable pathways to be installed above the CPI cabinets.
enews OH-Quote.jpgThe flexibility, energy efficiency, and customisation of Orlando Health's data centre proved to be well worth the journey. "Since we've been in this facility, we've had the same cooling capacity, twice the amount of floor space to cool and we don't have any type of heat issues at all. In fact, the temperature is staying 10 to 12 degrees cooler than what our other facility was," said Patricia Wood, Technical Services Manager at Orlando Health. Based on computer modelling, the less traditional approach "should save an estimated 30 percent in cooling efficiency" according to Senior Manager, Technical Services, Chuck Hahn. "If given the opportunity to start with a whole fresh room then we would deploy this same design again."

Of course, there's much more to Orlando Health's success story than meets the eye. In addition to reading the complete story here, be sure to browse photos and watch this special video recap, highlighting all of the positive transformations that Orlando Health's new state-of-the-art data centre have undergone thanks to CPI's Passive Cooling Solutions and more.
