Rittal Secure IT ensures that patient data is available whenever needed

Editor: Lisa Saller, Lisa Saller

The Oberlausitzer Bergland Hospital in Germany’s Upper Lusatia region is using a Rittal Micro Data Center system solution at two locations to provide back-up and ensure that patient data is available continuously.

The modular design of the Rittal Micro Data Center permits installation in difficult-to-access places and the subsequent housing of mature IT structures. It also provides system-tested safety and a high level of protection.

Security safes meet the customer’s physical security needs when a security room would be too large in terms of demand and costs.

To ensure the highest availability of every IT process and patient information, the Oberlausitzer Bergland Hospital is using seven Rittal Micro Data Centers at its sites in Zittau and Ebersbach. “We place high demands on our IT infrastructure’s physical security”, says Romain Seibt, who is in charge of IT at the Görlitz district health centre. “A major data centre with a security room would have blown our budget. With the Micro Data Center as a back-up solution at two sites, Rittal is offering us a technology that precisely meets our needs, though one that can be flexibly expanded at any time.”

The Rittal security safes, linked together in groups of three or four, not only protect the IT processes, they also offer a defence against physical dangers like fire, water, dust, fumes or unauthorised access. The secure IT infrastructure means that patient data is reliably provided to around 800 doctors, nurses, carers and medical and technical staff whenever needed. Reserve enclosures have been installed at both sites to allow for future increased demand. The Rittal CMC III monitoring solution checks that the safe is functioning correctly, and it sets off an alarm if the temperature or moisture level is too high or in the event of unauthorised access. If there is a fire, the DET AC fire alarm and extinguishing system responds quickly and reliably. Power distribution is performed by the intelligent Power Distribution Unit (PDU) strip and the Power System Module (PSM).
