Background
In the 1980s, Norton Healthcare inherited a basement data center to support
mainframe computer systems. By 2006, the 35-year-old data center, which
supported the organizations 13,000 users and 400 servers, had reached its
power capacity. Norton Healthcare overhauled its data center to establish a
power, cooling and monitoring infrastructure capable of supporting blade
servers, virtualized servers, IP telephony systems, and electronic medical records.
