Sensible Solutions Address Concerns of Data Center Growth for Wellness Company

Highmark Health | Data Center Upgrades and Expansion | Harrisburg, PA

Highmark Health is a national diversified health and wellness company with over 40,000 employees. To address an aging data center infrastructure in the face of significant growth, Highmark sought the “best value” solution that would position them for expansion into the provider network, expand customer service offerings in the insurance industry and provide disaster recovery capabilities to their current data network. To meet these objectives, Integrated Design Group provided design services for a UPS replacement and upgrade to the existing facility, including cooling and power modifications. Through a master plan study to support the IT migration of critical applications and to relieve facility capacity pressure, the critical infrastructure at the data center would be expanded to support increased critical UPS load requirements and data hall space. All work was executed with formalized change control required for all activities directly impacting the critical load.
