Langan Engineering and Environmental Services

Background

Langan Engineering & Environmental Services is an engineering and environmental consulting firm with expertise in nearly all real estate development sectors.

The Situation

In the midst of rapid growth and a corporate initiative to become more environmentally responsible from an IT perspective, Langan needed to upgrade its data center infrastructure. A key part of this effort was installing an uninterruptible power (UPS) system that would support efforts to reduce data center energy consumption and provide a clear path for expansion as blade servers and virtualization were introduced.

Results

  • Optimized enterprise data center efficiency with a software-scalable UPS that can quickly and easily double in capacity without adding or modifying hardware.
  • Established an economical path for growth that maximizes capital investments and meets data center space constraints.
  • Created a flexible data center power infrastructure that responds quickly and easily to the introduction of new technology and the change in data center equipment while decreasing downtime by 20 percent.
  • Reduced data center energy consumption by installing a UPS that operates at a 97 percent efficiency level.
“Because of its software scalability I can simply unlock additional capacity to 60 kVA and then 80 kVA as we need it without having to replace or bring in more hardware. I especially like that I will not need approval from my CIO or CFO for more equipment.”
