About Data Center Tiers
- What are data center tiers?
- Data center tier classifications are used to help standardize levels of service for data facilities. Different tiers coincide with more robust infrastructure, and therefore, improved reliability and uptime.
- How does a data center qualify for a tier rating?
- The Uptime Institute has a certification process with varying levels of recognition. About 1200 facilities worldwide have been officially certified. However, many other data facilities use the tier classification system as a commonly understood standard to describe the infrastructure in place.
- What are the benefits of colocating in a higher tier facility?
- If your equipment is mission-critical, you may want to consider colocating it at a Tier III or Tier IV facility. These facilities will generally achieve a higher uptime and tend to have certifications such as PCI compliance, ISO, etc. that may be required to meet certain legal or insurance requirements. If you don't have compliance requirements such as HIPAA or PCI, you may find that a Tier II facility will meet your needs.
