TIA Rating Program - Types

Basic​

  • A data center which has single capacity components and a single, non-redundant distribution path serving the computer equipment. It has limited protection against physical events.

Redundant components​

  • A data center which has redundant capacity components and a single, non-redundant distribution path serving the computer equipment.  It has improved protection against physical events.

Concurrent maintenance​

  • A data center which has redundant capacity components and multiple independent distribution paths serving the computer equipment. The site is concurrently maintainable which means that every capacity component, including elements which are part of the distribution path, can be removed/replaced/serviced on a planned basis without disrupting the ICT capabilities to the end user. It has protection against most physical events.

Fault tolerant​

  • A data center which has redundant capacity components and multiple independent distribution paths serving the computer equipment which all are active. The data center allows concurrent maintainability and one (1) fault anywhere in the installation without causing downtime. It has protection against almost all physical events.
