OnX Awarded Uptime Institute Tier III Certification for New Nova Scotia Facility

TORONTO – October 9, 2018 – OnX, which provides transformative IT solutions to enterprise and midmarket clients in all industries across Canada, has received Uptime Institute’s Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility (TCCF) for its new data center facility located in Nova Scotia.

This certification was achieved after a diligent assessment of the recently constructed high availability Nova Scotia facility by expert Uptime Institute teams from the United States and United Kingdom.

The Tier III Certification is based on the design and on-site verification of the Nova Scotia facility that was completed in May, as well as supporting documentation. It recognizes the OnX data center as supporting any planned work on the site infrastructure without disrupting computer room power and cooling capacity.

“We are honored to receive this certification from Uptime Institute, which further validates our efforts to provide clients across Canada with best-in-class cloud and managed services that lead to tangible business results,” said Paul Khawaja, President of OnX. “OnX data centers are built and managed for organizations that value premium data center services and consider risk management, compliance, and data protection as major drivers for cloud and managed services selection.”

“We commend OnX for being awarded an Uptime Institute Tier III TCCF certification in Canada. The certification clearly demonstrates OnX’s commitment to its customers and unwavering focus on not only designing, but on building a world-class facility that meets the most demanding requirements,” said Phil Collerton, Chief Revenue Officer, Uptime Institute.
