Standards / Compliance



Data centres are at the core of many organisations. Downtime of the data centre could lead to major losses to the business. This has led many organisations to build resilience at various levels such as at the data centre facilities infrastructure and at the ICT layer. However, following recommendations of various vendors, consultants and public domain information might result in under- or over-specification. Therefore it would be better to follow a commonly accepted standard as the basis for the design and built principles.

The ANSI/TIA-942 Standard specifies requirements and guidelines for the design and build of a data centre. It is intended for use by designers who need a comprehensive understanding of the data centre design encompassing Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical and Telecom requirements and guidelines, not always covered by other generic guidelines and so called “standards”.


CTDC® - Certified TIA-942 Design Consultant

Understanding the intent of the ANSI/TIA-942 standard is of fundamental importance, not only for the successful implementation of the data centre, but also for its sustainable operations. In this three-day course, the participant will learn how to design an ANSI/TIA-942 compliant data centre. It will provide a clear understanding of the requirements of the ANSI/TIA-942 Standard and possible implementation variations. The course is well suited for all types of data centres, be it enterprise data centres or multi-tenant, third party data centres such as co-location, managed services and cloud service providers.
