  10. 10. Tier Classification System & Operational Sustainability Overview Overview data center management and engineering consultants Uptimeinstitute.com/professionalservices© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC
  11. 11. Why Uptime Institute Tiers?• Internationally recognized de facto standard > Downloaded in over 110 countries > Tier Certifications in over 25 countries• Only data center benchmarking system developed by and for data center owners > Owners Advisory Committee• Encourages innovative engineering solutions• Allows for client equipment preferences© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 11
  12. 12. Tiers Rate the Design• Configuration of the site infrastructure equipment > Maintenance opportunities > Fault response• Driven by owner’s tolerance for an outage > Planned or unplanned downtime• D not address operation or l Do t dd ti location of th f ilit ti f the facility© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 12
  13. 13. Tier I & Tier II• Tier I Basic Capacity > Non-redundant capacity components (“N” only) • Critical environment power and cooling systems > Single distribution path• Tier II Redundant Components > Redundant capacity components (N+R) • Engine g g generators, UPS modules, IT and UPS cooling g > Single distribution path• Operations and Maintenance Considerations > Site infrastructure and Critical Environments must be shut down for annual maintenance and repair work > Installation or construction of capacity may disrupt the critical environment© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 13
  14. 14. Tier III – Concurrently Maintainable• Summary > Redundant capacity components and independent distribution paths > N t all equipment nor paths are required t b active Not ll i t th i d to be ti > Single-corded equipment can defeat the built environment > No runtime limits on engine-generators(ISO 8528.1) engine generators(ISO• Operations and Maintenance Considerations > Each and Every capacity component and distribution path element can be t k out of service for maintenance, l t b taken t f i f i t repair, or replacement without impacting the Critical Environment or IT processes© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 14
  15. 15. Tier IV – Fault Tolerant• Summary > Compartmentalized critical equipment > ‘N’ after any failure > Continuous Cooling for critical IT and UPS Systems > Single-corded equipment can defeat > No runtime limits on engine-generators(ISO 8528 1) 8528.1)• Operations and Maintenance Considerations > Each and Every capacity component and distribution y p y p path element can sustain a failure, error, planned, or unplanned event without impacting the Critical Environment o IT p ocesses o e t or processes© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 15

  18. 18. Beyond Tier: Operational Sustainability O ti l S t i bilit• Operational Sustainability is the management of the physical infrastructure to ensure long-term performance > Staffing > Training > Processes & Procedures > Place© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 18
  19. 19. Why is Operational Sustainability Important? I t t?• Beyond design and construction > Tier Classification System is design of physical equipment > Operational Sustainability is its ongoing operation• Ensures management of the data center investment for highest performance© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 19
  20. 20. Operational Sustainability Elements• Management & Operations > 70% of outages are attributable to human error > Highest weighting• Building Characteristics > Building features, design attributes, and operating conditions impact availability objectives• Site Location > Mitigation of natural or man-made risks g© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 20
  21. 21. Energy Efficiency• Addressed in multiple components• Components with energy efficiency aspects: > Space, power, cooling capacity management > Operating set points > Computer room management > 3rd-Party Certifications: Energ Star LEED EU Code of Part Certifications Energy Star, LEED, Conduct© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 21
  22. 22. Tier Myths and Misconceptions data center management and engineering consultants Uptimeinstitute.com/professionalservices© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC
  23. 23. Common Tier Misconceptions Addressed Add d• The following do not affect Tier Certification g > Utility feeds > Density, height of raised floor, floor loading > Site location, staffing, security, equipment selections• Single points-of-failure only affect Tier IV Certification• Tiers do not recognize fractional (Tier III 5) or increments III.5) (Tier III-)• Component count (N+1, N+2, 2N, 2[N+1], S+S) is not a reliable indicator of Tier• Uptime Institute Tiers are not affiliated with TIA-942© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 23
  24. 24. Uptime Institute vs. TIA-942 TIA 942• Uptime Institute > Developed by and for owner/operators • Performance-based for organizations with critical uptime needs • R Responds t and d i d to d driven b client b i by li t business case > Fundamental concepts that can be aligned with IT architecture/topology p gy • Concurrent Maintenance, Fault Tolerance > Tiers (design topology) and Operational Sustainability (other risk and enhancements) > Allows and encourages innovative engineering solutions, client equipment preferences, and emerging technologies© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 24
  25. 25. Uptime Institute Tiers vs. TIA-942 TIA 942• TIA-942 TIA 942 > Checklist > Developed by committee with engineering and manufacturer agendas f t d > Component/equipment count approach to solution > No distinction between design topology and site management > Sites penalized for factors not affecting uptime • Distance from major metropolitan area > Compliance is not weakest link, but ‘mostly’© 2010 Uptime Institute Professional Services, LLC 25
