Compass (News - Alert) Datacenters, a company that builds and operates standalone data centers, has recently won Uptime Institute Tier III Certification of Design Documents for the first two wholesale standalone data centers based on its Truly Modular Architecture.

According to Compass, the innovative design of its data centers helps in delivering state-of-the-art solutions for customers anywhere in the United States, serving the vast majority of companies that are not located in the few markets where geographically-constrained data center facilities are currently concentrated.

"This is exciting news for Compass and for our customers because it means our base data center design has been certified by Uptime Institute, the most respected authority in the data center industry for design standards that deliver high performance and reliability," said Chris Crosby, founder and CEO of Compass Datacenters. "

Uptime Institute officials confirmed that they certified the design for Durham, North Carolina and Franklin, Tennessee after a thorough review of Compass Datacenters' data center design.

Julian Kudritzki, SVP of Uptime Institute, said that they are proud to have worked with Compass in the development and evaluation of the TMDC product's design and this is a great example of the benefits that come from collaborating with Uptime Institute and adopting their industry-leading standards for facility design. Tier III compliance provides Compass customers with the independent verification of truly 24 x 7 capability with no blind spots or excuses.

Compass claims that its solution is a standards-based design that addresses the needs of customers and gives them a Tier III facility that can be built exactly where they need it to best support their business. The flagship of Compass' design is the CompassPod, which provides 10,000 square feet of column less raised floor space supported by 1.2 MW of electrical power with 2N power distribution.
