Why are we doing this? Well, we are seeing that perceptions about shopping for data centers with tier level as a requirement are changing. We are seeing that, now that the community has had time to think about it, Business’ concept of data center tiers is evolving. Without giving away the farm, we invite you to look at our poll in the sidebar of this blog and kindly register your opinion.
“I don’t really care, as long as their uptime is good”
…is for those who are focused on availability performance of the site, without necessarily correlating to a tier level designation.
“All Tier Level claims are lies”
…is for those who don’t believe tier level claims by data center operators, unless a certification can be produced.
“If they claim to be Tier III or Tier IV it must be true”
…is for those who take the data center operators at their word when it comes to assessing the quality of a data center.
There may be more choices that would amplify this study, but we’re keeping it simple for now. We’d appreciate it if you can share your opinion by selecting one of the options in the Poll area of the sidebar.
