Telekomunikasi Indonesia International Pte Ltd (Telin Singapore) -- a subsidiary of PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia International -- has announced that Telin-1 Changi Data Centre has been awarded a Tier III Certification of Design Documents.
The certification is based on review of multiple mechanical and facility criteria as defined in the Tier Standard: Topology by the globally recognised data centre authority Uptime Institute. Each Tier aligns with a specific function in the business world and sets the appropriate criteria for power, cooling, maintenance, and capability to withstand a fault.
According to Uptime Institute, a Tier 3 certified data centre needs to meet rigorous uptime requirements and have an effective life beyond the current IT requirement. They are typically utilised by organisations that are not able to afford disruptions.
Achieving this certification highlights Telin Singapore's commitment to implement critical infrastructure and facilities that will comply with key international standards.
"It is important for us to be able to implement critical data centre infrastructure facilities that are concurrently maintainable and comply with international standards in order to meet the needs of our customers," said Freddi Huang, Head of Engineering and Operations of Telin Singapore. "Our customers rely on our data centre facilities to run their business. They require maximum uptime and availability for their systems. [And this certification validates that we are able to provide] data building systems and infrastructure which support that."
Telin Singapore recently began constructing its third data centre in an effort to support rising demand for premium data centre services in Singapore. Dubbed Telin-3, the new five-storey, multi-tier, state-of-the-art facility is located in Singapore's Jurong Data Centre Park (DCP) and is expected to go live in third quarter of 2016.
