Uptime Institute Tier IV Design Certification has been awarded to Micron21 for its data centre. 

This certification is based on criteria covering mechanical, electrical, structural and site elements. The company is the first in Australia to receive this certification.

“This is a positive first step forward in data centre design for Australia, with rigorous data security standards to help us define a benchmark for excellence,” said Micron21 founder James Braunegg.

The Micron21 data centre is located in an outer-eastern suburb of Melbourne. The design caters for fully managed high-density cloud services and support. It is a hub that provides solutions for clients requiring mission-critical and fault-tolerant data centre services.

The data centre also includes an on-site Systems and Security and Network Operation Centre. This centre is key to providing fully integrated monitoring and support services for customers. Many customers require direct access to highly talented systems, security and network engineers 24 hours a day.

Clients of Micron21 range from major ISPs to Australian hosting providers, government departments and local small and medium businesses.

“We are pleased to award Micron21 with the Uptime Institute Tier IV Design Certification,” said John Duffin, managing director, South Asia, Uptime Institute.

“Achieving a Tier IV Fault Tolerant Design Certification illustrates that the facility meets the highest standards for infrastructure functionality and capacity as demonstrated on the design documents. This ensures that plans are configured to meet uptime goals and provide the critical business infrastructure needed, and is an important first step toward Tier Certification of a Constructed Facility.”
