Norway-Based SpareBank 1 Achieves Lower PUE with CPI Hot Aisle Containment
August 06, 2015
SpareBank 1, a Norway-based alliance of banking
organizations was able to improve its data center infrastructure and lower its
Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) with Chatsworth Products’ (CPI) flexible and
innovative data center solutions.
SpareBank 1 wanted a state-of-the-art data center
specifically tailored to its organizational needs. Additionally, they needed a
solution that would fit into the existing environment and accommodate 200 kW of
power and cooling to maintain the continuity of operations.
To meet this unique installation requirement and to create
the most efficient solution possible, SpareBank 1 selected CPI’s
Hot Aisle Containment (HAC) Solution, Two- and Four-Post
Cable Management and Accessories. CPI’s HAC Solution completely isolates
hot exhaust air from IT equipment and removes it from the room, resulting in
more efficient cooling units. More importantly, it helped the alliance achieve
its desired PUE goal of 1.3.
“For the design of the solution, I like the interoperability
of CPI products. I can pick and choose and assemble a solution,” stated Magnus
Askautrud, Business Development Manager for Coromatic.

Additionally, to better serve the increasing demands of
global and local customers, such as SpareBank 1, CPI has increased its European
production capabilities by setting up a manufacturing location in Ellwangen,
At this prime location, CPI will manufacture the TeraFrame®
family of cabinets, as well as accessories. A product showroom has also been
created and will be open to customers and channel partners in the region.
