The data centre located in Camana Bay and operated by Dart has earned the Service Organization Controls II standard accreditation. The attainment of this certification confirms that the Camana Bay data centre has achieved this industry benchmark for management controls and aligns the data centre with global technology standards.
This certification is granted to organisations who meet certain standards of control for technology operations that govern security, availability, information privacy and confidentiality. Issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accounts (AICPA), the certification can be seen as the Institute’s stamp of approval that the IT service provider has adheres to the appropriate controls for data centre operations.
Christian Blais, Dart’s Senior Vice President of Information Technology, explained what this accreditation means to a business looking to conduct secure business, particularly in the legal and financial fields:
“This is part of our ongoing efforts to maintain alignment with global technology standards and ensure that Camana Bay continues to be the premier location for companies that rely on high-quality technology infrastructure for their operations.”
“The main backbone infrastructure to all buildings is already installed and ready for use,” explained Data Centre Administrator for Dart, Reynaldo Powery. “Tenants only need to complete the end connections. For those tenants not currently using the data centre, there is a negligible cabling cost for a server rack-to-office connection. The connection speed would be as if the servers were in their office, so it’s an attractive option for those wanting this secure service.”
If you are not a Camana Bay tenant but are interested in renting a rack, the Dart Real Estate Leasing team can walk you through the process. “We have all Internet service providers located in the data centre for ease of connections for those outside of Camana Bay,” Reynaldo added.
