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.
The tier system ranks data centres into four tiers according to their expected levels of uptime and availability, based on how much redundancy is built into the infrastructure. A Tier 3 data centre has a high level of uptime, and a Tier 4 is about as bulletproof as they come.
