Sao Paolo, Brazil (26 November 2018) – EPI awarded Gemelo Data Centres’ modular data centre solution the “TIA-942 Ready”, Rated-3 certification for its prefabricated data centres model G-BOX-T3 - 4-20 R – 20/120. The “TIA-942 Ready” certification is based on the most recognized global data centre standard, ANSI/TIA-942-B. This certification confirms that the design of the prefabricated modular data centre has met the standard for concurrent maintainability in electrical, mechanical and telecommunications. The ANSI/TIA-942 is the most highly regarded international data centre standard because it is a complete data centre standard and it is publicly available allowing full transparency on the certification criteria.
Gemelo Data Centers appointed TC Solutions and EPI to conduct the audit and certification. EPI Certification is a Certification Body and globally renowned for its high-quality service and professionalism. EPI are well recognized data centre experts and are the global leader for ANSI/TIA-942 audit and certifications.
According to Sidney Fabiani, Founder & CEO of Gemelo Data Centres, “We are extremely pleased that our modular data centre solution, which is installed in Sao Paolo, Brazil has been awarded the TIA-942 Ready Rated-3 conformity certification. It is our goal to have a modular data centre solution certification which is globally recognized to assure our customers that our solutions are meeting the highest quality standard and that we take our responsibility seriously to protect the business of our customers.”
According to Joseba Calvo, Managing Partner, EPI LATAM, “Market research has proven that infrastructure including telecommunications, electrical and mechanical, is the basis for an effective and efficient data centre, which Gemelo Data Centres clearly understands. The Gemelo Data Centres team is dedicated to continuously improve their infrastructure designs.”
According to Jayme Cosceli, CEO, TCSolutions, “It is an honor to work on this certification process with Gemelo Data Centres. We believe in raising the efficiency and effectiveness of all data centres in Brazil and joining the ranks of world-class data centres. We have partnered with EPI Certification to bring the highest quality of data centre audit and certification services to Brazil.”
According to Edward van Leent, Chairman & CEO, EPI Group of Companies, “We are seeing a greater than anticipated uptake of ANSI/TIA-942-B and the TIA-942 Ready certification. Recently, we have seen an increased demand from data centres requesting audits based on ANSI/TIA 942-B, as many indicated that there is now a single reference point covering all areas of the data centre infrastructure. ANSI-TIA 942-B is becoming a de-facto standard of data centre infrastructure globally.”
