Khazna Data Centers, one of United Arab Emirates' (UAE) largest data centre providers achieved the Uptime Institute’s 'Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility' for its Apollo 3 and Apollo 4 data centres
According to Khazna, in meeting today’s data centre demands, innovative requirements come in the form of speed, higher density, modularity, energy efficiency, sustainability, and scalability; whilst remaining secure and highly available. The wholesale model adopted by the company aims to address enterprise data centre requirements by presenting highly secure, ultra-modern wholesale data centres that are fully equipped with the latest technologies. These may be customised and scaled as customers grow to allow for faster time to market.
Khazna said with the increased digitalisation of processes, along with a growing demand for operational readiness, agility and availability of IT systems and infrastructure, data centres are becoming more critical to accommodate for these developments. The data centres form an integral part of the 108MW data centre that focuses on improving efficiencies in the design and elimination of anomalies that ensure adherence to the best practices in data centre-built environments and implementing effective controls to protect critical infrastructure from environmental hazards and human errors.
Hassan Alnaqbi, CEO of Khazna Data Centers, said, “Driven by the requirement for agile, automated, and power to support for cloud, big data analytics, data centre facilities are evolving to serve the current and future needs of enterprise IT. Khazna Data Centers continually seek to optimise its data centre operations and incorporate best practices to achieve highest standards for its space certification and the Tier III Uptime Institute accreditation is a clear commitment to that.”
Khazna Data Centers said that it is setting up efficient design and delivery, at a quicker pace, halving the time it takes to get the data centre operational compared to traditional construction methods. The company aims to continue to empower customers and partners to accelerate their digital transformations, re-imagine workflows and optimise operations.
Mustapha Louni, senior vice president Middle East, Africa and Greater India, Uptime Institute commented, “The Tier III certification provides Khazna Data Centers with an added value and clients with a significant level of intangible reassurance, since they translate into an upgrade of all operating systems, enhanced security levels, increased system resilience and data processing centre availability.”
Uptime Institute’s Tier III accreditation was achieved after an assessment and evaluation by expert teams from the Uptime Institute. This certification assesses data centre reliability, availability, maintainability and overall performance needed to provide continuous and efficient operations.
