DataSpace was awarded Tier III Certification of Operational Sustainability–Gold by the Uptime Institute for the third time, confirming the exceptional reliability and resilience of its data center
Following a multifactor audit and review of DataSpace’s operations, the Uptime Institute confirmed the outstanding quality of the DataSpace data center’s staff and production processes by awarding it Tier III Certification of Operational Sustainability—Gold for the third time. The Uptime Institute particularly emphasized the data center’s maturity and performance during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The company’s resilience, including in the face of external challenges such as the pandemic, is the result of analysis, planning, management and implementation of a series of vital measures. These include steps taken to ensure the continuity of production processes and service provision, and measures put in place to protect the health and safety of employees, customers, partners and guests.
DataSpace data center underwent this certification process to replace its previous Tier III Certification of Operational Sustainability, which expired on June 29, 2020. The new certification is valid until June 4, 2023.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 certification process was conducted in two stages. During the first stage, DataSpace uploaded all the necessary documentation in electronic form to a secure server. This documentation was then checked by consultants from the Uptime Institute, and a joint video conference held. The second stage took place a few days later, in strict compliance with the data center’s rules for minimizing the risk of COVID-19 transmission and infection. It consisted of an in-person inspection of the data center, demonstrations of work processes by the operations team, customer support service and IT department, and in-depth examination of staff workloads and numerous other no less important issues and processes.
