CYBOLT is the first data center in Mexico certified construction/facilities at Rated-3 level with the international data center standard ANSI/TIA-942-B
Metepec, Mexico (12 Oct 2021) – In August of this year, the recertification of the Cybolt Data Center, originally related to Disaster Recovery, a brand integrated into its project in 2021, was completed.
After the EPI audit, CYBOLT successfully passed the recertification process of its operating facilities in Metepec, thus renewing the most recognized certification worldwide for data centers according to the international standard ANSI/TIA-942-B for Rated-3, in the disciplines of electrical, mechanical, telecommunications, security, monitoring, architecture, among others. This standard is the most respected worldwide, mainly because it is a complete data center standard and because it is publicly available which allows total transparency in the certification criteria.
PC OMEGA was appointed to coordinate the project and EPI to carry out the audit and certification. EPI is a certification body and is recognized worldwide for its high quality service and professionalism. They are also experts in data centers, and world leaders in auditing and ANSI/TIA-942 certifications among other globally recognized standards such as DCOS® or Data Center Operations Standard, ISO 27000, ISO 22301, and others.
According to Salvador Aranda, Director of CYBOLT Managed Services, this certification contributes to the company's efforts to establish in its Metepec building as the most important operations center in Latin America for cybersecurity and resilience, since it guarantees the integrity, security and availability of the systems hosted in its facilities, according to the best global practices. “Although we are not a native company in the IT infrastructure supply market, we have made the investments in the last ten years to build our own operations center, with Data Center, Alternate Work Positions, Vaults and what will surely be the most advanced SOC in the region," said the executive.
According to Juan Carlos Ordoñez, General Director of PC OMEGA, implementing the TIA-942 standard has allowed us to guarantee the availability of infrastructure, as well as carry out correct administration of the data centers of our business partners in Mexico. This has allowed us to ensure their operational continuity similar to world-class data centers. That's why we've partnered with EPI to provide the highest quality data center audit and certification services to support our customers who require TIA-942 and DCOS® (Data Center Operations Standard) certifications.
"Market research has shown that infrastructure, including telecommunications, electricity and mechanics, is the foundation of an effective and efficient data center, which government, and the end user clearly understand," said Joseba Calvo, Managing Partner, EPI Americas.
"We are seeing greater-than-anticipated acceptance of ANSI/TIA-942-B," said Edward van Leent, Chairman and CEO of EPI Group of Companies. "Recently, we have seen increased demand from data centers requesting AUDITS based on ANSI/TIA 942-B, as many indicated that there is now a single benchmark covering all areas of data center infrastructure. ANSI-TIA 942-B is becoming a de facto standard of data center infrastructures globally."
