Reliable planning for data centers

The successful development of a highly available data center under the Trusted Site Infrastructure criteria begins in the planning phase. During this stage, TÜViT supports operators and planners of IT infrastructures.


Planned progress from idea to goal

Trusted Site Infrastructure (TSI) is not just the de facto standard for the assessment of existing data centers, but also serves as the basis for the planning and design of data centers. It also covers all of the requirements of EN 50600. Many operators, data center planners and engineering firms therefore use the availability levels (level 1 to level 4) of the TSI criteria catalog for orientation when planning new construction or renovation. Invitations to tender for new data centers frequently include the requirement that a specified TSI level must be achieved.

TÜViT therefore provides the service of reviewing the planning – typically the design planning – of data centers to ensure its conformity with the TSI criteria. If any non-conformances are identified, they can be corrected before the implementation by means of plan-modifications.
