Astana, Kazakhstan (5 Nov 2018) – Instarget Solutions On@Cloud data centre is the first commercial, and so far the only commercial data centre to be awarded the globally renowned TIA-942 Rated-3 data centre facility certification in Kazakhstan. This places On@Cloud among the world-class data centres in the world.
The TIA-942 standard covers all aspects of the physical data centre not limited to electrical and mechanical. It includes site location, architecture, security, safety, fire suppression, and telecommunication.
The ANSI/TIA-942 Rated-3 conformity certification is awarded by EPI, a Certification Body and global audit and certification service provider. EPI as an external 3rd party has provided an independent audit and validated On@Cloud data centre to conform to the requirements of TIA-942 Rated-3 which means it has a concurrently maintainable site infrastructure. Each and every capacity component can be removed/replaced/serviced on a planned basis without disrupting the service to the end-user, providing great assurance to its mission critical customers.
According to Serikzhan Kunanbayev, the CEO of Intarget Solutions, “Our customers demand quality and transparency. We always hire the best people and work with the best companies, earning their trusts with the high quality services and project we deliver. Getting our data centre certified to a global standard is a natural step for us in our commitment to provide best in class services. We made sure we certify conformity to the most trusted data centre standard in the world, the TIA-942. By obtaining the ANSI/TIA-942 Rated-3 conformity certificate, On@Cloud stands out as the only data centre with such certification in the CIS territory, not only in Kazakhstan. For the purpose of upholding the highest standard certification we also selected an external global audit and certification service provider which is also a registered Certification Body with impeccable reputation, EPI. EPI is by far the largest ANSI/TIA-942 audit organization in the world.”
