DataSpace Data Center Achieves Highest Tier III Uptime Institute - Operational Sustainability Certificate Again.
DataSpace Data Center Achieves Highest Tier III Uptime Institute - Operational Sustainability Certificate Again. DataSpace Data Center, one of the leading commercial data center operators in Russia, has again achieved Tier III Operational Sustainability Certification of Gold level. This certificate is a guarantee of effective management and operation of DataSpace Data Center, high qualification of the employees and elimination of risk factors in the data center operation. As of now, DataSpace Data Center has been running without a single second of downtime since it was first put in operation — more than 1700 days.

Tier III Operational Sustainability Certification means that the experts of the Uptime Institute assess site operation conditions, qualification of the staff and regularity of their training, maintenance programs and procedures, building features of the data center building, risks associated with natural and man-made disasters. Changes made to the operating regulations of the Data Center since the time of the previous certification are additionally checked during re-certification.

DataSpace has been a member of the Uptime Institute Network since 2010, and DataSpace Data Center is the first in Russia and Eastern Europe to achieve Tier III Uptime Institute Certification in all categories: design, facility and operational sustainability. In the first phase of certification in 2010 - Tier III Certification of Design Documentation - compliance of DataSpace Data Center's infrastructure shown in the design documentation with Tier II standards was checked. The passing of the second phase in 2011 - Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility - guaranteed that the constructed and commissioned facility corresponded to the previously certified design documentation. Operational Sustainability - Gold is the highest level of Tier III certification and it was first obtained by DataSpace in June 2014. The new document has been issued for the period of 3 years too.

"Guaranteed operational sustainability of DataSpace Data Center is one of the company's strategic objectives. Re-certification according to Tier III Operational Sustainability - Gold standard confirms this, — comments Sergey Rasskazov, President of DataSpace. — Efficiency of operation of the Data Center and the work of DataSpace's technical services in accordance with international standards allows to provide an exceptionally high level of services and a guaranteed SLA".

"The Data Center's Tier III Operational Sustainability - Gold certification is extremely important for the company, since the downtime of its equipment results in significant losses. During the audit, the consultants of the Uptime Institute analyze the risks and behavioral models that lie outside the design and construction of the Data Center, but which are capable of having a considerable impact on its operation without downtime in the long term, — comments Alexey Solodovnikov, Managing Director of the Uptime Institute in Russia and the CIS countries.
