“The facility is a top-tier data center for colocation, and offers a number of customizable options for our enterprise-class customers,” said Dan Allen, DataBank’s VP of Technical Operations. “To build such a high quality data center, the design and infrastructure we chose to deploy in the build-out was vital. The facility was conceived from the ground-up to ensure it will deliver the highest levels of efficiency, security and redundancy available. This certification supports that status.”

The Uptime Institute is the recognized authority for both the creation and administration of data center Tier Standards & Certifications. DataBank worked meticulously with Uptime engineers from the conceptual design and planning, through the construction and commissioning of the data center. The Uptime Institute’s certification of DataBank’s East Twin Cities data center as a Constructed Tier-III facility ensures it was built to meet or exceed those high levels of performance capacity, effectiveness, and reliability laid out in the audit.

“In our industry, providers are always attaching a Tier rating to their facility and infrastructure,” said Tim Moore, DataBank’s CEO. “So, I’m proud to be one of the very few who actually completed the rigorous process which verifies our adherence to the criteria is fact.”
