New accreditation scheme to be launched for data centres
The Data Centre Alliance (DCA), the industry body for data centres, has announced that it will launch a new certification scheme to ensure quality of service throughout the sector.
Many businesses invest in data centres although with no official accreditation program in place it is often difficult to be sure of the credentials of each supplier, which is why the new initiative has been set up.
In order to attain the certification, data centres will have to undergo an audit every two years, with inspections focusing on areas such as connectivity and cabling resilience, operations and maintenance processes and professionalism, cover power resilience and energy efficiency strategy.
“The programme has been designed to reflect the business goals of customers by providing a more secure environment for hosted data and give greater insurance over business continuity,” said Simon Campbell-Whyte, executive director, DCA.
