There are a number of certifications that qualify a data center’s capabilities on an overall basis and within specific fields like serving Government or the healthcare industry.
Years in the making, AiNET Data Centers proudly feature the following Certifications:
- SAS 70 Type II: SAS 70 provides guidance to service auditors when assessing the internal controls of a service organization. The more-stringent SAS 70 Type II certification report includes the service auditor’s opinion on the fairness of the presentation of the service organization’s description of controls that had been placed in operation and the suitability of the design of the controls to achieve the specified control objectives.
- TIA-942 Tier IV: Highest level data certification designated by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) and sanctioned by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The hallmark of a TIA-942 Tier IV data center is a design/implementation that offers not just concurrent maintainability, but also fault tolerance – the ability of the data center to withstand the loss of one or more major systems. See thorough system block diagrams of AiNET’s certified TIA-942 Tier IV design/implementation.
