CPI Products Help Data Centers Achieve Green Standards, Prestigious Recognitions
Passive Cooling® Solutions Promote LEED, Uptime Institute TIER Certification

BendBroadband Green Data CenterWESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Sept. 24, 2015 — Building architects and engineers who incorporate green design principles enable customers to reap energy savings and enhanced performance. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, benefits of green design include lower operating costs, improved occupant productivity and optimized life-cycle economic performance.

Chatsworth Products (CPI), an innovator of quality data center solutions, provides all the tools and products necessary to achieve a green data center, which can also earn industry design recognitions.

CPI is the pioneer of Passive Cooling® Solutions, the most cost- and cooling-effective thermal management solutions on the market today. CPI Passive Cooling can reduce data center cooling costs up to 90 percent and allows for Tier IV operation because there are no potential points of failure requiring redundant systems.

CPI Passive Cooling Solutions help data centers achieve the internationally recognized, highly coveted Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. Additionally, Uptime Institute awards data center tier certifications for IT infrastructure. There are four certifications available, four being the most prominent.

BendBroadband, a provider of cable, phone and internet services in Bend, Ore., has been ranked Oregon’s greenest Uptime Institute Tier III colocation data center because of CPI’s Passive Cooling Solutions. In addition to Tier III certification in Design and Facility, the BendBroadband data center is LEED Gold certified, making it only one of five data centers in the world to acquire two of the industry’s most prestigious honors.

To achieve its green, energy efficient, nationally recognized data center, BendBroadband implemented CPI’s Aisle Containment Solution and F-Series TeraFrame® Cabinets with Vertical Exhaust Ducts, which recycle and redirect hot exhaust air from the cabinets. This solution has also lowered the data center’s power usage effectiveness to a 1.2.
