LUXEMBOURG, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EBRC, the Luxembourg leader in highly secured integrated "Trusted Europe Services" (Data Centre Services, Managed Services and Cloud Services, Advisory and Security Services), once again stands out internationally by being Tier IV Certification of Constructed Facility awarded by the Uptime Institute for the Resilience Centre South (RCS).
This unbiased third-party certification of each system, providing assurances that there are no shortfalls or weak links in the infrastructure, confirms the RCS was designed and constructed to meet the organisation's highest availability objectives.
This Certification recognises EBRC's Resilience Centre South design, construction, and testing as supporting any planned work or unplanned failures to the site infrastructure without disrupting operations. Furthermore, Tier IV criteria are founded on the capability to detect and isolate a fault within a facility's critical systems while sustaining the critical load and without any impact to the delivery of power and cooling.
"We congratulate EBRC on this award, which marks a higher standard of service for commercial data centers," says Philip Collerton, Uptime Institute Managing Director ‒ EMEA. "This Tier IV Facility Certification is emblematic of the increased adoption of Uptime Institute Tiers in the heart of Europe and EBRC's commitment to the Design and Facility Certifications ensures that the data center is consistently and rigorously designed, constructed, and tested. The list of Tier IV Facility Certifications is deservedly few and this award represents a true global achievement."
EBRC's continuous quest of Excellence, Agility, Commitment and Trust reinforces the unique position of EBRC and demonstrates Luxembourg position as an Excellence Centre in the heart Europe, as far as the supply chain management of sensitive or highly strategic information is concerned.
"What impressed me most about this project is not the 'stuff,' but the people. The most compelling message taken from EBRC Tier IV Facility Certification effort is not only the technical capabilities of the facility, which are significant, but the sense of commitment of management and the engineering staff throughout the RCS design, construction and commissioning. A successful Facility Certification requires a commitment across the engineering and management levels, but Tier IV even more so," says Ed Rafter, Uptime Institute Senior Consultant.
Certified with the highest international standards - PCI DSS Level1, ISO 27001, ISO 20000, ISO 9001, ITIL, Prince2 – this recent Tier IV Fault Tolerant Certification of Constructed Facility represents the culmination of EBRC's investment and commitment to site uptime availability.
Responding to issues and stakes related to the management of sensitive information and infrastructures, EBRC is recognised as the European leader in ICT solutions thanks to its unique One-Stop-Shop "Trusted" offer.
