Case Study: Norton Healthcare

Nov 24, 2009

Download Norton Healthcare, the largest healthcare system in Louisville, was supporting 13,000 users and 400 servers on a 35-year-old data center. When the data center reached its capacity, the manager reached out to Emerson Network Power to completely remodel the 3,400-square-foot facility.

This paper covers the strategies Emerson Network Power implemented to create a scalable, redundant infrastructure, increasing workload by 100% and reducing help desk calls by 20%. This included installing two Liebert 610 UPS Systems at 400 kVA to double capacity and provide the data center with redundant power, increasing cooling efficiency through a hot-aisle/cold-aisle configuration and implementing the Liebert SiteScan monitoring software to gain visibility of all environmental conditions and enable proactive, preventative maintenance strategy.
