Omaha, Nebraska-based colo Scott Data Center earned Tier III Design Certification for its data center expansion plans. The Uptime Institute conducted an independent third party review of Scott Data Center’s design drawings which includes the addition of 20 megawatts of power and cooling capability to its existing infrastructure.
The Omaha World Herald published a story about the expansion last week, quoting Uptime Institute VP Julian Kudtrizki:
Now certified, the expanded data center will be the lone multitenant operation in Nebraska or Iowa and only the fifth in the United States to receive [Uptime Institute Tier III Certification]. It also means more major businesses will employ the data center’s services, Kudritzki said. “This is absolutely a big deal,” Kudritzki said. “It’s going to be a huge competitive differentiator.”
