What is a Tier III+ Data Center

The four tier system classifies data center infrastructure designs. The classification system is an industry-wide standard and defines the industry benchmark.

 

A Tier III data center has the following characteristics:

  • Multiple active power and cooling distribution paths–as opposed to single path design found in Tier I and Tier II data centers
  • Redundant components
  • Concurrently maintainable, providing 99.982% availability

Our Tier III+ our data center features additional redundancy and guarantees 99.999% uptime reliability.

 

Industry Compliance

Our data center currently meets all of the industry standards.

Our facility is fully HIPAA compliant, meaning we take the necessary security precautions to ensure that your sensitive health and patient information is protected.
