Yesterday, Colt Data Centre Services were delighted to share the news that we’ve been awarded the Uptime Institute’s Tier III Certification of Design Documents for two of our halls in our London 3 facility. This is great news not only for us, but for our customers as well. Certification is an independent assessment of our data centres’ resilience and as such ensures that our customers can be assured they are getting the highest quality design available.

The data centre industry has a history of building no two data centres alike. Today we are progressing towards an era where the benefits of standardisation for data centres and best practices in design, build and operation are becoming more evident. When it comes to housing their critical compute, our customers are risk averse and want a solution and provider they can trust. Certification such as the Tier certification for Design and Management and Operations stamp of approval give our customers the reassurance that our design and operations are independently assessed by one of the industries foremost authorities, The Uptime Institute. An independently verified certification reinforces the confidence our customers need when outsourcing their wholesale data centre and colocation services.

More importantly though the certification underlines the outstanding features that our data centres already offer, minimising service disruption, a modular build that allows for Critical Cooling Systems and UPS to be maintained or replaced with no detrimental effect on resilience and of course our formidable speed to market with such a robust solution.

When you combine these high-standard design features with the location of our London 3 centre, located just 25 miles away from the city centre, you have a very powerful, accessible and state-of-the-art facility. I’m very pleased we’ve been awarded this certification and am now looking forward to improving on our already cutting-edge services and solutions.
