A new market trend has recently emerged with regards to “grading and certifying” data centre quality with the use of the “Tier Level” standard developed by “The Uptime Institute”. With over 20 years in the data centre design and construction business, we are strong advocates of matching data centre infrastructure quality to corporate business requirements and “Best Practice” standards. Basing a data centre’s design on a set standard, clearly defines the required infrastructure topology, provides a structured design framework, and ultimately leads to the efficient design and construction of an industry “Best Practices” data centre. Agreeing to base a data centre’s design on a set standard (Tier Level) also provides a clear project scope and definition, for both managerial and financial approvals and commitments.
