For customers considering a data centre colocation provider, we always urge them to look for providers with certifications to standards that are of superior quality (based on the standards criteria) such as the TIA-942, and not based on popular hearsay or herd-mentality. Ultimately it is your data, your business, your reputation, and you would want to ensure that they are fully protected. The TIA-942 Rated-3 certificate clearly distinguishes Primacom as a data centre services provider committed to provide the highest quality to their customers.”
“We chose the ANSI/TIA-942 over other standards/guidelines, because we wanted to benchmark our data centre to the best standard. The TIA-942 is superior in all aspects. The TIA-942 offers the complete scope, covering all areas required for a fully managed data centre, not only electrical and mechanical, but also architecture, telecom, location, safety, security and efficiency. Its criteria are available publicly and there are multiple auditors which gave us more flexibility. We selected EPI Certification as our auditor because of their outstanding reputation for professionalism, undisputable expertise in data centre and being a Certification Body, which is under the oversight of an Accrediting Body thereby ensuring competence and impartiality. Our customers can be fully assured that we have met this international standard’s criteria backed by the certification from EPI Certification.” said Mr. Ferdy Ichsan, Technical and Operation Director of Primacom.
