Delta’s data center POD solution receives TIER III-Ready certification

Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, announced today its data center POD (Point of Delivery) solution has been recognized with the TIER III Ready Award from the Uptime Institute, a prominent advisory organization for the global IT industry.

The TIER III Ready certification, which entails rigorous uptime requirements and long-term viability for IT equipment, was evaluated based on a number of factors including N+1 architecture design, mechanical and electrical components, as well as environment conditions.

Delta developed its POD solution by leveraging pre-engineered designs of in-house IT racks, aisle air containment, in-row precision cooling, modular UPS systems, a monitoring system, and redundant distribution to support the IT load.

Victor Cheng, Delta’s senior vice president and general manager of its Information & Communication Technology Infrastructure Business Group said, “We see a growing demand for POD solutions. Since data centers provide the backbone of IT operations, the task of building a reliable and efficient data center is a major focus for most enterprises. In addition to receiving the TIER-Ready award for our POD solution, we have just helped our customer HTC-ITC, a subsidiary of Hanoi Telecom, to build a TIER III Uptime certified data center in the Hoa Lac High-Tech Zone in Vietnam. With our accumulated experience, we are confident that we can help enterprises save both time and money to build Uptime-certified data centers.”

Delta’s POD solutions feature a fully modular design concept, flexibility, and provide pay-as-you-grow with short installation time to meet the rapidly growing needs of data storage and processing.  The solution includes Delta’s DPH series modular UPS systems and precision cooling system with variable fan speed control. Delta’s lithium battery systems enable power backup for data centers.

“We are pleased that Delta’s POD solution has achieved Uptime Institute’s TIER-Ready award. Pre-fabricated and POD solutions that display the TIER-Ready logo assure an enterprise that the design they are considering has been reviewed by Uptime Institute. They can trust the solution provider for their ability to deliver resilience and reliability for their data center,” said Luca Beltramino, Senior Vice President Global Programs for Uptime Institute.
