Data Center Class Ratings?
Is there any online documentation detailing these classifications? A, B, C, D etc. I've done quite a bit searching on Google etc - but no luck?
Generally speaking, could you tell me alittle about the differences..and what the Classes represent. I honestly have never heard of such a thing.
Uptime Institute (UI) has proposed a tiered classification that is useful for benchmarking purposes.
The UI classification system defines four tiers by availability:

That 's it. Super.
Thanks for the link.
I thought there were ratings that were based on things like:
Could survive a flood?
Could survive a tornado?
Could survive a bomb blast?
Im assuming this is not the only clasification of a Data Center.
J20...mentioned something about "A, B, C, D etc. ".
I've seen the occasional mention of Data Center class ratings in a few forums. I think there's a thread on WHT with some other guy asking about them - but didn't get an informative reply.
Not too sure if there are Data Center ratings or not. I recall seeing some Colo providers stating 'We're in a Class C' data center etc...
do you think tier 1 = A , tier2 = b etc.....?
I don't know. Doing a search for 'class A data center' on Google - second result, shows some guy asking the same. They don't know either.
Ok...i'll phone my colo facility and ask those guys.
the only ratings system I'm aware of is the Tier ranking.
I have seen the term Class A used in phrases like:
'Datacenter in a Class A Telco Facility' or 'Class A Building' which leads me to believe that the term Class A might indicate the building the facility is in. The best office buildings (or most modern and up-to-date high-end buildings are considered Class A)
Just a guess...
