NTT Ltd’s Cyberjaya 5 Data Center has achieved a series of important certifications from the Uptime Institute and the Telecommunications Industry Association.
These certifications mark important milestones for the Cyberjaya 5 Data Center as it affirms the facility’s performance, reliability and security that it conforms to some of the most rigorous requirements in the industry for data centers.
The facility itself features a Tier IV ready design with scalable power and up to a 15kW/rack cooling solution capable of supporting high density hyperscalers.
In terms of certifications, the facility has received the UPTIME Tier II Certificate of Design Documents as well as the Tier III Certificate of Constructed Facility and the TIA-942 Rated-3 certification. Both were conferred after a rigorous inspection of the campus by the Uptime Institute and EPI in February 2021.
The UPTIME Tier III certificates from the Uptime Institute endorse Cyberjaya 5 Data Center’s reliability requirements for around-the-clock operations with maximum levels of safety and security.
For the uninitiated, the Uptime Institute categorises data centers into four tiers based on availability of services with Tier IV being the highest availability of all.
The TIA-942 Rated-3 certification means that the facility has the means and capability to conduct planned maintenance without any downtime or disruption to operations. These qualities, in particular reliability, security and continuation of operations are critical to data center operations.
The NTT Cyberjaya 5 Data Center has also met several other prestigious requirements that include the Payment Card Industry and Data Security STandard (PCI DSS), Threat and Vulnerability Risk Assessment (TVRA) and Data Center Risk Assessment (DCRA) that were carried out based on Bank Negara Malaysia’s (BNM) Risk Management in Technology framework.
Commenting on the accolades, Henrick Choo, CEO of NTT Ltd. Malaysia said, “With these certifications, our customers such as BFSIs, can be assured that our data centre operates at the highest quality standards.
