The Rio de Janeiro Data Center was certified during its first month in operation
Ascenty, the leading Data Center company focusing on the Latin American market, received the TÜV Rheinland TR3 certificate for its first Data Center in Rio de Janeiro, launched last December. The seal certifies that the unit complies with the specifications established during the design phase.
All tests are performed based on the ANSI/TIA 942 - Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Center Regulation and assess operation and performance of equipment and facilities, including system maintenance and operation (such as cooling, security, access control, CCTV, fire detection and fighting procedures and electrical networks).
“The Ascenty units are designed and built with high-performance Data Center technologies. It is an honor to receive this certificate shortly after operations began in Rio de Janeiro and proves the company offers customers a high quality and secure infrastructure”, says Roberto Rio Branco, Marketing and Institutional Director at Ascenty.
TÜV Rheinland is a global leader in certification, inspection and project management services. The group employs independent specialists focused on quality and security who are tasked with inspecting technical equipment, products and services, as well as overseeing projects and tailoring companies’ processes.
The first Rio de Janeiro Data Center was planned to achieve a total energy consumption of 15 MVA (with Tri-bus redundancy), with a power generation system offering 48 hours autonomy and a high-performance cooling system (cold water and air chillers). Additionally, the unit has two telecom rooms with a redundant underground fiber optics entry point, providing connectivity with Brazil’s main telecom operators.
