TSI.PROFESSIONAL Data Center Training

Register now


Our TSI.PROFESSIONAL Training teaches you the basics of planning, building and operating data centers, taking into account aspects of physical security, availability and energy efficiency. As part of the training, you will gain an in-depth insight into our successful Trusted Site Infrastructure (TSI) methodology for the evaluation and certification of data centers of all types: Enterprise DCs, Colocation DCs and Cloud DCs.

TSI is an established and proven method for evaluation and certifying mission critical infrastructures in data centers that has been in use since 2002. The basis for this is the TSI.STANDARD criteria catalog. It takes into account the relevant European and international standards - in particular the EN 50600. Since the latest revision (V4.5), the published parts of the ISO/IEC 22237 standard are also covered. Since then, the TSI.STANDARD has been continuously developed with the aim of always reflecting the state of the art and standardization. It also takes into account the findings from the daily practice of over 1,800 projects in the sense of "best practices".

In the course of our TSI.PROFESSIONAL Training, you will gain a deeper insight into the currently available TSI criteria catalogs and the associated requirements and processes. The structure, application and differences are explained. You will have the opportunity to ask your individual questions at any time.
