Vertiv, formerly Emerson Network Power, has announced that its SmartAisle solution was granted a TIER IV-Ready Certification by the Uptime Institute in Asia, the first in the company’s portfolio of IT and edge infrastructure solutions in the region to achieve this distinction. A TIER IV-Ready certification is the highest certification, signifying maximum reliability and efficiency of the solution.
The TIER IV-Ready certification was awarded to a specific model of the SmartAisle only available in Asia and was evaluated based on a number of factors, including design specification, site-specific information, network topology, as well as mechanical and electrical components.
The Uptime Institute found that the Vertiv SmartAisle supports a Fault Tolerant design, with redundant capacity and modularity. This enables the data center to potentially function within the requirements of a total design for TIER IV certifications, according to the Uptime Institute.
“We are thrilled that Vertiv has achieved Uptime Institute’s TIER-Ready certification for their latest SmartAisle solution. Pre-fabricated and modular solutions that display the TIER-Ready logo are a customer’s assurance that the design they are considering has been certified by Uptime Institute for its ability to deliver resilience across a wide range of operating conditions,” said Christopher Brown, chief technology officer of Uptime Institute.
