ViaWest will also pursue the North American Tier IV design certification from the Uptime Institute, which represents the highest rating possible measuring quality and reliability in a data center.
ViaWest’s data center will offer customers colocation, managed and cloud services and hybrid offerings from this new facility, with around-the-clock on-site engineers and service staff to help maintain uptime through remote hands capabilities, ticket tracking and event notification. The facility will offer a variety of space options, from private suites and cages to cabinets, along with multi-zone security. The data center is also fully compliant, meeting PCI, SOC, SSAE and HIPAA regulations.
