The Uptime Institute provides education, publications, consulting, certifications, conferences and seminars, independent research, and thought leadership for the enterprise data center industry and for data center professionals. The Institute has pioneered and continues to develop numerous innovations that subsequently have become industry standards, including hot/cold aisles, site infrastructure energy overhead metrics and measurements, cost modeling, the dual-power specification, and the Tier Classification system for rating the concurrent maintainability and fault tolerance of data center facilities.
All IT Rooms uses the Tier classification for rating server rooms/datacenters. The desired Tier classification is the starting point for the design and determines the availability and reliability of your server room/datacenter.

Furthermore Tier V and Tier VI are defined. These datacenters offer an even higher availability rating where two identical datacenters are used for redundancy purposes with a safe geographical distance in between them.
