September 2014 - CPI Provides Custom Hot Aisle Containment Solution to Premier Teaching Hospital

Custom Solution was Crucial for Flexibility, Layout of Facility

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Sept.11, 2014 — As one of the United States’ top teaching hospitals, having an efficient and reliable IT operation is critical for delivering comprehensive and high-tech quality care at University of Florida’s (UF) Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Fla. When it was time to increase its data center capabilities, UF Health Shands Hospital chose Chatsworth Products (CPI) to create a customized state-of-the-art data center to support the hospital’s growing IT system needs.

CPI created a custom cabinet and aisle containment solution for UF Health Shands Hospital’s unique data center space. The solution included a self-supported CPI Hot Aisle Containment (HAC) Solution to address different heights, widths and depths of the ceiling and cabinets and to accommodate vendor-supplied storage solutions.

“We’re the first data center in the state of Florida to have a free-standing Hot Aisle Containment Solution,” exclaimed Brad Kowal, Associate Director of Computer Operations for UF Health Shands Hospital.Shands Data Center

CPI’s latest generation of cabinets with enhanced frame design and airflow capabilities were also deployed, including the F-Series TeraFrame® Cabinets with Vertical Exhaust Ducts and N-Series TeraFrame Network Cabinets. Accessories to improve airflow isolation, as well as cable runway and trays, completed the cutting-edge solution.

All of CPI’s products and solutions were ordered in Glacier White. “Being a hospital, we wanted the data center to have a clean room feel. Having all white accomplished that extra level of aesthetics that demonstrates we take the cleanliness of our data center seriously,” Kowal stated.

UF Health Shands Hospital is among the nation’s best in seven specialties—Urology, Cardiology, Neurology, Pulmonology, Nephrology, Gastroenterology and Oncology, which is why it must have a dependable, efficient data center. Thanks to CPI, the hospital’s new data center is now running effectively with efficient cooling, zero hot spots and increased per-cabinet densities.
