Maximum Data Center Performance? TIA-942 Certification
The role of data centers in the everyday operations of organizations is growing exponentially. So too is the need for absolutely optimum performance.
When you figure the costs of electricity, cooling, equipment, and human resources, even a slight delta shift in the right performance direction can result in vast savings.
This doesn’t even touch the impact in value of premium data center operations to the overall functioning of businesses and public entities.
Simply put, data centers are becoming the most critical nerve center of successful organizations.
It’s no longer about just avoiding downtime. It’s about fine-tuning uptime twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week.
This is why TIA-942 Audits and Certifications are having such a positive influence on the qualitative delivery of data center operations.
Forget about the thought of data center certification as someone merely walking around with a clipboard making checkmarks. This process is revolutionizing the way companies approach data infrastructure excellence.
Joseba Calvo, EPI Americas Managing Partner, and one of the top global experts in TIA-942 Certification and Audits, believes it’s a gamechanger for the companies who embrace it.
“The benefit of these audits is organizations can know exactly how their data centers are designed and operating in comparison to broadly adapted standards,” Calvo said. “This provides these organizations with the knowledge they need to invest properly in order to significantly raise their level of performance.”
The TIA-942 is targeted for enterprise data centers and provides 360-degree evaluation of all aspects of their operations.
“We analyze the design and any available documentation of the data center and then we conduct an onsite visit in order to check all of the infrastructure factors,” Calvo said.
“This includes the architectural, electrical, cooling, telecommunications, safety, security monitoring system, fire suppression system and maintenance processes. So, all of the infrastructure is covered to see what performance gaps exist in the data center according to standards and according to the level rating of the facility.”
In addition to providing comprehensive feedback on the systems, equipment and personnel involved in an enterprise data center, EPI takes it a critical step further. They can provide essential training to your team.
“There are around 38 different positions involved in data center operations,” Calvo said. “Not only do we identify some of the shortfalls in service delivery, but we can also assist in the training of these key personnel to get an organization operating with excellence at these standards.”
As more and more companies are experiencing, the TIA-942 Audits and Certifications process not only allows for proper metrics, it’s one of the highest return investments in the data infrastructure industry.
