How to upgrade from Uptime Institute Tier Certification to TIA-942 Certification

Presented by

Edward van Leent, Chairman and CEO, EPI Group of Companies

About this talk

It is common knowledge that the Uptime Institute Tier Topology guidelines only addresses the electrical and mechanical infrastructure of a data centre. Although critical, data centre operators/owners have come to learn that these guidelines are missing some fundamental elements for todays’ business critical environments. As such, more and more data centre operators/owners are adopting the ANSI/TIA-942 Standard, not only because the TIA-942 is a true Standard but also because this Standard addresses electrical and mechanical, similar to Uptime Institute, and in addition the site location, architectural aspects, physical security, fire safety and telecommunications to name a few. This webinar will address some of the fundamental differences between the Uptime Tier Topology guidelines and ANSI/TIA-942 and will explain considerations on how to upgrade to the ANSI/TIA-942 Standard. This webinar will also address some of the common misperceptions about Uptime Tier Topology certification and ANSI/TIA-942 certification. In this webinar, we are most fortunate to have with us, Edward van Leent, a veteran international data centre expert who will discuss the pros and cons of Uptime vs TIA-942, why has TIA-942 gained popularity and how you can move from Uptime Certification to TIA-942. (Note: Uptime Institute, Uptime Institute Tier Standard Topology, Uptime Institute Certified are owned by The Uptime Institute LLC.)
