The Certified Green Data Center: Resilience & Availability (CGDC:RA) certification is a rider certification that is attached to a Certified Green Computing Facility (CGCF) certification. Facilities who are already CGCF certified can add on the CGDC:RA certification during the recertification process or a new facility seeking certification can obtain both certifications in one go.
CGDC:RA credentials proves that facilities can demonstrate high resilience and high availability whilst being energy efficient and operating sustainably. Some of the criteria being evaluated are:
- Mission critical power resilience and availability
- Mission critical cooling resilience and availability
- Mission critical servers/storage resilience and availability
- Mission critical network resilience and availability
Details about the CGDC:RA certification can be obtained from certified vendors who carry the CGCF program.
