Certified Data Centre is a TÜV SÜD certification covering IT infrastructure aspects (power, air conditioning, fire protection, EM/lightning protection) as well as the building, processes and operations (documentation, risk analysis, countermeasures, continuous improvement and more). The services provided by the data centre are not within the scope of the certification.
Data centre certification shows customers, businesses and regulators your IT infrastructure services are secure and trustworthy. Customers want assurances that their data will be kept safe and will not be physically damaged by fire or other disasters, and that their data will also be protected in line with the strictest security standards. Data centre certification demonstrates that your services have been audited and assessed, thereby giving customers utmost confidence.
Our data centre certification provides customers with confidence that you offer reliable and secure data centre capabilities, both in terms of operation as well as IT infrastructure. In addition, certification from a third party will provide an independent and objective assessment of weaknesses and opportunities for improvement.
