Franklin Lakes, NJ, February 24, 2008 - PTS Data Center Solutions today announced that the company's president, Peter Sacco, was featured in an article for SearchDataCenter.com titled, "Is Uptime Institute's data center tier system worth it?" SearchDataCenter.com, a leading trade publication run by IT media conglomerate Tech Target, provides updates on the latest news and trends for IT professionals in the data center industry.
Published February 20th, 2009, this article
focuses on how the Uptime Institute's data center tier classification system has
been misused by numerous companies in recent years. It has become commonplace
for companies to claim they have a "Tier 3- plus" or "Near Tier-2" data center;
classifications in which the Uptime Institute don't recognize. PTS Data Center
Solution's president, Peter Sacco, critical of the Uptime Institute's data center
tiers rating system quotes, "While I understand the argument that a site is only
as good as its weakest link, to say that a site incorporating most but not all
the elements of the tier definition is mathematically and experientially wrong".
Sacco has been critical of using the uptime Institute's data center rating tiers
rating system as a tool for predicting availability due to its lack of
addressing real world considerations such as high density. Sacco adds further
commentary in a prior blog titled, "Are
the Uptime Institute's Data Center Rating Tiers Out of Date?".
Other featured commentators include Tom Deaderick, Director at OnePartner, Julian Kudritzki, Certification Manager at ComputerSite Engineering Inc, and Dough Theis, Vice President of Business Development at Lifeline Data Centers.
