The Uptime Institute has a new standard for data center owners, operators, and managers, designed to address management behaviors and risks that affect long-term data center uptime.

The Uptime Institute has a new standard for data center owners, operators, and managers.

"The Tier Classification System categorizes data centers, assigning them a Tier rating from the lowest level of uptime (I) to the highest (IV). According to The Uptime Institute's announcement last week, the new tier standard, 'Operational Sustainability,' was created in response to data center operators’ needs for an industry standard to minimize operational risk and maximize uptime.
