The Trusted Site Infrastructure (TSI) method, which has been in existence for 19 years now, with the two criteria catalogues TSI.STANDARD and TSI.EN50600, has a wide range of possible applications. One of them is to use them as a method for conformity assessments (also called GAP analysis) for physical security and availability of data centers.
 

Trusted Site Infrastructure (TSI)

Particularly in the age of cloud services and co-location offerings, more and more companies are deciding to outsource their data centers because of the associated cost benefit for outsourcing their IT installations. This raises the question of quality guarantees. With TSI and the corresponding criteria catalogues developed by TÜViT, tools are available that enable companies to specify their requirements for the co-location provider in detail or to request proof from neutral third parties. It is not only the power supply and the cooling, air-conditioning and ventilation system that play a role in ensuring the physical security and availability of a data center. TSI offers you a comprehensive and established approach with requirement defined in the areas of environment, construction, fire detection and extinguishing systems, security systems and organization, cabling, power supply, ventilation and air conditioning systems, organization and documentation. TSI systematically uncovers all potential risks and weaknesses of a data center. It ensures availability and physical security if you use it to your advantage.
