How do we decide which data centre standard to build a new data centre to and who can certify that it meets the requirements of the standard?
There are a number of interpretations of what is known as the Tier, Rating or Class of a data centre. The aim of each of them is to classify the resilience of data centre infrastructure.
Different standards focus on different aspects of the data centre but the key criteria to focus on in terms of availability are the most critical aspects of the data centre; Power, Cooling and Communications.
The general principle is as follows;
|1||Enough items for the system to function|
|2||Some redundancy in components|
|3||Concurrent maintainability i.e. the ability to maintain any item of infrastructure without having to shut down the IT equipment.|
|4||Automatic fault tolerance. The system continues operating in the event of a failure without human intervention.|
