Vertiv, formerly Emerson Network Power, announced that its SmartAisle solution was granted a TIER IV-Ready Certification by the Uptime Institute in Asia, the first in the company’s portfolio of IT and edge infrastructure solutions in the region to achieve this distinction. A TIER IV-Ready certification is the highest certification, signifying maximum reliability and efficiency of the solution.
The TIER IV-Ready certification was awarded to a specific model of the SmartAisle only available in Asia and was evaluated based on a number of factors, including design specification, site-specific information, network topology, as well as mechanical and electrical components.
The Uptime Institute found that the Vertiv SmartAisle supports a Fault Tolerant design, with redundant capacity and modularity. This enables the data center to potentially function within the requirements of a total design for TIER IV certifications, according to the Uptime Institute.
The latest SmartAisle series from Vertiv provides a rapid deployment data center design in a row-based system. Features include power, thermal management, infrastructure management and monitoring, as well as racks and containment, offering considerable savings for data center operators. The Vertiv SmartAisle solution is modular and scalable depending on capacity requirements, and is capable of supporting deployments for Internet of Things (IoT) applications and edge computing networks.
