Norway-Based SpareBank 1 Achieves Lower PUE with CPI Hot Aisle Containment

August 06, 2015

Sparebank 1 - SPAREBANK_CONTAINMENT_DOOR_RGB72.jpgSpareBank 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 Racks, Evolution® 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.
