The Uptime Institute’s rigorous Tier Standards for Operational Sustainability design and inspection program is the only authoritative, evidence-based, and unbiased  mechanism for certifying data center resilience. Recovery Point is one of the few colocation operators in the United States with multiple sites certified by the Uptime Institute for Tier III Constructed Facility infrastructure.


If a facility’s design and construction have not been independently certified, there’s no proof that it really meets any standards — or your needs. From single racks to build-to-suit to private deployments, we make it easy and safe for you to get out of the data center business, lower your costs and focus on your core mission.
