Vertiv has announced the launch of prefabricated modular (PFM) data centres / centers which have been awarded the Uptime Institute’s TIER-Ready designation of performance resiliency.

Use of TIER-ready designated PFM models from Vertiv are a customer’s assurance that once deployed, these infrastructures can quickly and easily earn the coveted TIER Certification of Constructed Facility (TCCF). PFM solutions from Vertiv which carry the TIER-Ready designation are now available in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), with the aim to extend the TIER-Ready program globally later in 2020.

The TIER-Ready Partnership is a strategic agreement under which specific models of Vertiv’s PFM designs are reviewed by Uptime Institute during the engineering development process, to assure that those solutions meet the stringent requirements of the globally recognized TIER Standard of Topology. Vertiv PFM products which carry the TIER-Ready designation directly support the availability and uptime requirements of demanding customers who have chosen to strategically implement TIER Certified digital infrastructure. As part of the partnership agreement, Vertiv has completed Uptime Institute’s TIER-Ready III design review for its SmartMod PFM infrastructure for up to 10 racks and 80kW of IT load. Facilities deployed using TIER-ready designated SmartMod solutions will be able to quickly and easily earn Uptime Institute’s TCCF.
