Datacenter United – the data center ICASA partners with – obtains the prestigious Tier IV certificate from the Uptime Institute. The USA-based consultancy and audit company Uptime Institute has set up an internationally acclaimed classification system that indicates the degree of guaranteed redundancy of a data center. The service levels range from Tier I to the ultimate Tier IV.
Data placed in a Tier IV certified environment ensures the most optimal protection and offers the highest guarantees regarding the redundancy of your data. The higher the guarantees on the layer of infrastructure, the more guarantees can be offered to the end-users. This is extremely important for the larger cloud and telco providers, but also for companies with high visibility on the market like e-commerce platforms, or companies who work with critical data as governments, healthcare providers, banks and military.
As the only (and thus the safest) party in Belgium that can guarantee such quality, ICASA’s data center partner sets the standard at the highest security level possible today for data centers. Even in Europe, only a few data centers can reach this high-level of service and security. Datacenter United offers the legal certainty of compliance with local legislation, and the customers can enjoy the highest possible guarantees in terms of continuity.
“Belgium remained until now a blind spot when it came to Uptime Institute certifications, and particularly in the geographical axis Amsterdam – Paris. With this Tier IV certification, we are putting Belgium and more specifically Antwerp on the digital map,” says Friso Haringsma, founder and CEO of Datacenter United. Covid-19 gave data centers an extra boost. There is a growing demand for additional bandwidth and local IT spaces are increasingly being outsourced to third parties. At Datacenter United there is therefore even more room to expand. At the current location, it is possible to expand the surface by another 8,500 sqm.
Datacenter United is a Belgian provider of high-quality data center services. Under the label Datacenter United, qualitative data center solutions are put on the market. With three data center locations in Belgium, two of which are located in the port of Antwerp and one in Zaventem, we are the ideal local partner for the outsourcing of your infrastructure. Each location is ISO9001, ISO27001, ISAE3402 (SAS70) and PCI DSS certified. This proves that the company meets the standards in the field of security, safety, information security, and operational and financial control.
