FARNBOROUGH, 29 September 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Datum Datacentres, the Farnborough based provider of ultra secure, high resilience co-location data centres, today announced that Datum FRN1* has been approved by the DCA Certification Board as a Fully Operational Class 3 Data Centre.

In the diverse world of data centre provision, the DCA Certification scheme was launched to provide prospective buyers with a range of usable standards for meaningful insight into a data centre’s fit-for-purpose relating to business role, environmental impact, management culture and reliability. Starting from the recognition that not all organisations have the same requirements and priorities, the independently audited scheme identifies not just a data centre’s resilience class but also the physical security of the site, its energy efficiency strategy and operational professionalism. Based on the international data standards BSEN50600, the categorisation is intended to help clients select the appropriate category for their needs.

Receiving the award from Steve Hone, Operations Director of the Data Centre Alliance, Datum Datacentres Managing Director Dominic Phillips today said: “Datum is delighted to be an early participant in the newly launched data centre certification scheme and to be awarded Fully Operational Class 3. From the outset we designed our data centre to provide a robust, resilient and highly secure co-location service, and built on that design with the people, processes and technology to fully support that intention. By helping determine whether the client needs and risk profile will be met by the data centre, the DCA scheme will enable more informed decisions, ensure that the overall operation matches the published intent and will create a better match to support a long term partnerships”.

Speaking on behalf of the DCA, Steve Hone added “I am delighted that the DCA Data Centre Certification Accreditation Board has agreed with all the recommendations made by the independent approved auditors, Keysource, to certify and award the Datum Datacentres facility located in Farnborough with a Fully Operational Class 3 Certification. We look forward to the broader adoption of the certification’s scheme across the industry, providing end-users with a clear verification of a data centre’s ability to meet an organisation’s business goals and needs”.
