Why dedicated server hostings centers are interested in UL 3223 certificate?

Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL), specializing in the development, publication and updating of voluntary standards based on consensus in the field of safety, as well as the creation of appropriate certification programs, presented a new solution for the data center industry. The organization invited all interested parties to take advantage of the comprehensive UL 3223 certification program, which covers all aspects of data center performance and security.

ESD Consulting, which is a subsidiary of ESD Global, a reputable consulting and engineering company, will be directly responsible for the certification of the data center under the UL 3223 program. Certifier representatives noted that the ultimate goal of the UL 3223 project is to make dedicated servers hosting companies more resilient.

How is UL certified?

With data center certification under the UL 3223 program, a team of specialists examines the following components:

• Construction and architecture

• Critical infrastructure systems

• Fire protection systems

• Control systems

• Network and communication systems

• Security systems

• Commissioning process

UL 3223 against other data center certification programs

There are several key differences between UL 3223 and other programs of this kind. First, UL 3223 is currently the most comprehensive certification program for data centers. Rather than focusing exclusively on mission-critical support infrastructure, UL 3223 also considers the strength and resiliency of the network, physical security systems, and resilience and commissioning.

Secondly, in the case of other data center certification programs, assessment can be carried out with small inspection teams of 1 or 2 people. The UL 3223 certification team includes from 10 to 12 professionals from a number of experts in the field of various disciplines: architects, mechanical and electronic engineers, and environmental and fire safety consultants. The presence of a larger team of experts in various fields allows for a more thorough check of the data center.
