Julian Kudritzki has more visibility than most into how the Uptime Institute's data centre tier system is being used around the world, and according to him it's become a useful tool to help businesses find a reliable hosting provider for their applications.Kudritzki, a vice president with the Uptime Institute, travels to South America, Europe and other regions explaining the tier system to prospective clients and supporting them while they get certified.
