PTS Data Center Solutions, Inc. is proud to announce that PTS’s Founder and President, Peter Sacco, has recently achieved an accreditation award with the Uptime Institute: Accredited Tier Designer.

According to the Uptime Institute, achieving a Tier rating signals to investors, customers, and the marketplace, that PTS meets the highest standards for infrastructure (Topology) functionality and capacity as demonstrated on the design documents. It validates that the facility and system design is consistent with uptime objectives. Tier Certification helps align the infrastructure design with the business mission, ensuring that an organization’s significant capital investment yields the desired result.

Uptime Institute Professional Services is the only entity licensed to rate and Certify data center designs according to the Tier Classification System. Independent of any Engineer-of-Record or manufacturer affiliation, Uptime Institute Professional Services consulting teams provide the unbiased third-party validation recognized as the preeminent data center credential for more than two decades.

The rigorous certification course covers mechanical, electrical, structural, and site elements. Uptime Institute experts review design documents and provide consulting support to guide a final design compliant with the desired Tier rating. Additionally, they offer recommendations to enhance Operational Sustainability for long-term robust performance.

Completion of the training and certification program required significant time, dedication, and effort. Due to his extensive expertise and diligence, Pete was able to pass the accreditation exam with flying colors.

Having designed, built and operated data centers for 20+ years, I am happy to say that an old dog like me can learn a few new tricks. The Uptime Institute’s training and certification was outstanding, and I am proud to say that I achieved their accreditation as a data center tiers designer.
