SYNOPSIS

Uptime Institute’s Tier Classification System for data centers has reached the two-decade mark. Since its creation in the mid-1990s, Tiers has evolved from a shared industry terminology into the global standard for third-party validation of data center critical infrastructure. In that time, the industry has changed, and Tiers has evolved with it, remaining as relevant and important as it was when Uptime Institute first developed and disseminated Tiers. At the same time, Uptime Institute has observed that public understanding of Tiers has been clouded by the many myths and misconceptions that have developed over the years. This situation leads to design mistakes that is not Tier compliant in which fail to pass the Tier Certification of Design Documents. This presentation discusses the common mistakes to avoid when creating Tier compliant design, specifically explaining the design documents portion of a Tier Certification. The next presentation looks at how data center capacity is shifting, and customer/user requirement is changing. Review the growth statistics of Enterprise data centers, Colo/wholesale and Cloud data centers. Understand prefabricated data center systems adoption and edge data center trends as well as the impact of Internet of Things. Also take a look at DCIM market and the trends. Finally, what are the 10 disruptive technologies in Data Centers.
