    Tier IV - Fault Tolerant Datacenter

    I'm curious since I'm reading some info about Datacenter levels.
    Is there a Tier IV Datacenter in WHT?

    WHT is in a data center. Data centers aren't in WHT.

    I am not aware of ANY truly Tier IV data center that offers colocation services.

    Why the request/demand for Tier IV? Tier II-III is going to be much more common and meet the requirements of 99%+ of people/companies. The Tier IV facility is generally for major financial institutions/transactions where billions of dollars are at stake, for certain arms of the government, for carrying out primary business operations of Fortune 100 companies, etc.

    What are you talking about? Are you sure you understand the question?

    I think I will agree with you. I found this website (The Uptime Institute) and the only datacenter that belongs to this category are private institutions.

    Show me the audit report, then I'll believe it. Have seen plenty of people claim it...

    Just looking at their web site "N+2 power and cooling infrastructure" means they're not Tier IV. Tier IV would need to be 2(N+1) or so...

    While this is true, I wonder why a private institution would spend the money to get audited by the Uptime Institute.. It's kind of like, what if they only got a Tier III rating, are they then going to rip out their infrastructure or change how their data center was built. . . . Plus, it's not even a selling point since it is a private data center - who cares what tier it is as long as they are confident in their build..

    Tsk...tsk...tsk! your answer shows how young you are with the way you think.
    But for your assignment, answer this...Why Facebook and other big companies has their own datacenter? This is off-topic.

    I believe most public datacenters fall under the Tier I and II category. Are there even any true Tier III's that exist?
