Proud to say that we’re stepping into 2022 not only with new goals but also with ambitious work results from the past year. At the end of 2021, a worldwide recognized “Uptime Institute” issued us a “Tier III Facility” certificate. This official award added to the first one, “Tier III Design”, we got in 2019. Simply put, professionals rating data centers worldwide recognized – “RackRay” meets the highest service quality requirements. What did we do to get the certificate, and why is it so important both for our team and you?
“Tier III Facility” – What’s So Special About This Certificate?
While looking for quality service, you would most likely come across many promising slogans – recognized, certified, and meeting the highest standards would be among the most repeated phrases. Still, the truth is, not everyone who claims it can prove their words. Since the beginning of our journey in 2015, our primary goal has been to craft the highest-quality data center and services. So, meeting the world-class standards seemed to be our duty rather than the way to show off.
As we’ve already mentioned, we got our first “Tier III Design” certificate back in 2019. That time the “Uptime Institute” recognized – our DC project meets the requirements to guarantee:
- 99,982% uptime (no more than 95 minutes of downtime per year)
- All components to be duplicated or redundant
- Maximum virtual and physical data security
The first document obliges its’ owners to equip the data center premises according to the specific criteria and ensure that each server is powered by enterprise-class hardware and software. Not a single component that’s important for a smooth Dedicated and Cloud servers’ functioning can be missed.
