– Productivity Increased 41 Percent as a Result
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., March 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Nu Skin®, a billion-dollar enterprise in skin care and nutrition products, relied on Chatsworth Products’ (CPI) Passive Cooling® Solutions to revitalize its undersized, undercooled and underpowered data center.
Nu Skin’s data center was small, outdated and did not have proper redundancy to back up systems. IT managers turned to Hunt Electric, a leading data/communication design build company to help them create a new data center environment fit for the company’s bright outlook. The Hunt Electric I.T.S./Data Communications Team recommended CPI’s Passive Cooling Solutions.
One of the main challenges Nu Skin needed to address was inefficient cooling and the constant change in airflow dynamics. To resolve these issues, Nu Skin tested a variety of cabinet platforms using their own equipment. CPI’s F-Series and N-Series TeraFrame® Cabinets with Vertical Exhaust Ducts were selected.
Nu Skin’s improved data center now averages 20kW per row, with potential of up to 50-100kW. CPI’s solutions cut downtime by 56 percent, productivity increased by 41 percent and energy consumption decreased 23 percent. Reliability also increased from a Tier I to a Tier III data center.
"CPI definitely turned the products around quickly enough for us to make good decisions and be ahead of the schedule timeline," stated Darrin Guevara, I.T.S. Communication Division Manager for Hunt Electric.
