Infrastructure|UP Time Tier III, TR3 TÜV Rheinland and SOC

Tier III

The Uptime Institute’s tier system classifies Data Centers according to their infrastructure, based on redundancy standards.

The Tiers are extremely important to ensure infrastructure availability for your company, guaranteeing that the environments are always available to avoid any risk to your operations.

The Uptime Institute applies the Tier standard to assess the level of quality and reliability of the entire infrastructure supporting Data Centers.

Benefits for your company

  • Availability of 99.982%, and Ascenty guarantees 100% infrastructure availability;
  • Infrastructure with redundant capacity components to ensure an availability of 99.982%;
  • Multiple independent distribution paths servicing IT equipment;
  • Dual-feed IT equipment fully compatible with the local architecture topology.


The TR3 certification by TÜV Rheinland attests the Data Center’s compliance with required specifications related to the project, assembly, installation, operation, maintenance, sustainability, and technical documentation, as well as the execution of works, integrated commissioning tests, and operation audits.

The certification rules are based on the ANSI/TIA 942 – Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Center. In addition, the review process encompasses a wide range of different criteria, such as monitoring measurements, tests, verifications of operation and performance of equipment, accessories and systems (cooling, security, access control, CCTV, fire detection/firefighting, and electrical networks), in addition to processing and interface among all agents, across different environments and normal use conditions.

Benefits for your company

  • Guaranteed Data Center availability and security;
  • Ascenty’s commitment with the quality of systems and the workforce operating Data Centers;
  • Infrastructure with redundancy capacity for all systems.

  • Additional cost savings with auditors, since Ascenty’s certification is an added benefit to your company.
