Health System Ensures Availability with Liebert UPS and Power Assurance Protection Plan

May 24, 2019

Vertiv deploys and protects Liebert GXT UPS units across 83 hospital network closets to enhance healthcare system availability and simplify healthcare IT management.


Background

When the Data Center Operations Manager for a major healthcare network inherited responsibility for the UPS units that power 83 network closets located across various facilities, his first course of action was to replace many of these aging units. Given a preset budget and timeframe for the project, he explored several options, and ultimately selected Liebert® GXT UPS units backed by the Vertiv Power Assurance Package. More than an extended warranty, the Power Assurance Package delivers time-saving installation and maintenance services with increased peace of mind. The healthcare system’s UPS infrastructure investment will be fully supported from day one, all for a very affordable incremental cost per unit per year. The decision to choose Liebert GXT UPS and Power Assurance Package services allowed the Data Center Operations Manager to complete his project $200,000 under budget and a full year ahead of schedule.



Results

  • Increased UPS protection plan to five years with 100% coverage for parts and labor
  • Simplified the startup and installation process including removal and disposal of existing equipment
  • Enabled cost-effective unit monitoring and temperature sensing for added peace of mind
  • Completed the UPS update and refresh project a year ahead of schedule and $200,000 under budget



Case Summary
Location: 13 hospitals and 100+ clinics and outpatient facilities throughout Minnesota.
Vertiv Solution: Vertiv provided Liebert GXT UPS units with the Power Assurance Package. The units offer the convenience of a plug-and-play solution while the Power Assurance Package provides local support from factory-trained technicians to expedite and simplify startup and installation and ensure reliable, ongoing operation.
Critical Need: All healthcare environments rely on the highest level of availability for the systems, equipment, and data that patients, clinicians and administrators depend upon every day. Maintenance and regular refreshes of UPS units are part of ensuring that availability. Given the age of the current units installed throughout the healthcare systems’ network closets, a refresh was in order. The Data Center Operations Manager needed a reliable, cost-effective, and easy-to-install solution along with local support from factory-trained technicians to ensure optimum performance of critical power equipment.
