GAITHERSBURG, MD; December 3, 2018 – Recovery Point Systems (“Recovery Point”), a leading national provider of cloud-based business resilience solutions, announces that its data center hosting and disaster recovery facility in Gaithersburg, Maryland, has been awarded a Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility by the prestigious Uptime Institute.

This Tier III certification signifies that the data center infrastructure is operating in a a “concurrently maintainable” mode in which each and every element in the power distribution and cooling paths can be removed from service for scheduled maintenance, without impacting the availability of data center services for colocated customer assets and delivery of its portfolio of DRaaS, BaaS and IaaS offerings. The Uptime Institute is the only organization that formally rates and certifies data centers against its globally accepted Tier Classification System

“As companies rush to the cloud for their computing needs, they have less control over the data center infrastructures that support their operations then they did when the operated out of their own bricks and mortar facilities. How can they best minimize the risk of downtime and denial of access to their critical data or the cloud-based services they rely on,” asked Marc Langer, President of Recovery Point. “One way is to work with vendors who deliver critical cloud services from data centers that have undergone the Uptime Institute’s globally accepted certification process for resilience.  The reliability of critical services, like disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), back up as a service (BaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS), is clearly enhanced when the underlying datacenter infrastructure they ride on is independently certified to offer the maximum resilience inherent in a certified Tier III data center design,” said Langer.

This new certification for our Gaithersburg facility follows a previous award of Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility for the company’s flagship data center facility in Germantown, Maryland, with Recovery Point facility joining a select, elite group of companies with multiple Tier III facility certifications.
