Santa Clara Valley medical center recently initiated an upgrade to reduce the amount of energy required to cool their data center. The data center houses all patient records as well as other sensitive data. The challenge to keep the system on-line while providing a solution to not only reduce the energy usage but provide greater flexibility with back-up systems was crucial. We installed a system using outside air during the night and cool days while adding two additional units. The additional units use chilled water for cooling then use refrigerant as a back-up. That coupled with the existing chilled water units provides the space with 100% back up while utilizing as much cool outdoor air as the system will allow.
