Data Center Facility Audit Services (DCFA)

Data Center Facility Audit Services (DCFA)

Data centers are at the heart of any business and the cost of downtime is enormous. That is why many data center operator/owners invest heavily in the facilities infrastructure to support the mission critical IT infrastructure.

It is a known fact that many data center operator/owners assume that their data center meet the redundancy levels chosen from the ANSI/TIA-942 standard, typically fuelled by promises from self-proclaimed ANSI/TIA-942 knowledgeable designers, consultants and/or contractors.

The sad fact is that audits often reveal that the facility still has a number of nonconformities either due to misinterpretation of the ANSI/TIA-942 standard or sometimes due to contractors cutting corners due to costs or sometimes due to bad workmanship.

The data center facility audit is a thorough audit to verify that the facilities are meeting the conformity requirements of the ANSI/TIA-942 standard. This has proven many times to be valuable for both new data centers as well as existing data centers where business managers want to understand the potential risks in the data center facilities infrastructure.

The audit will review all key critical areas such as site location, architecture/construction, electrical, mechanical, telecommunication, safety, fire detection and fire suppression, security and many others.

Data center audits on the ANSI/TIA-942 standard should be conducted by certified auditors who hold the CTEA (Certified TIA-942 External Auditor) status.

Data centers with conformity to the ANSI/TIA-942 standard will receive the prestigious ANSI/TIA-942 conformity certificate.

The service includes:

  • Review of detailed design document package
  • Review of each physical facility area under scope
  • Report indicating major nonconformities
  • Optional Teleconference with project team to ensure comprehension of the findings in the report
  • Review of the CAR (Corrective Action Report)
  • Award of Data Center Conformity Certificate
