"Uptime Institute, the gold standard for Tier Certification helped us to bring the highest level of international standards to the Moroccan market. From initially helping us to train our staff with the Accredited Tier Designer (ATD) program to the Tier III Certification with first design and then construction, the experience was extremely valuable to our organization and our team."

N+ONE Datacenters

Overview

One of the leading private data center operators in Morocco, N+ONE is an integral part of the digital economy and often behind the scenes, empowers enterprises and content providers to deliver services and content to their end consumers. Over the past ten years, N+ONE has relentlessly worked to introduce state-of-the-art data centers conforming to the highest international standards to the Moroccan market. Despite numerous challenges from both a market maturity perspective and affordability of telecommunications, the company has achieved good progress in making data centers and cloud outsourcing adopted by the IT community, especially in the private sector.

The Challenge

N+ONE wanted to set the bar high for the company since early on in the company’s inception. It was important to the organization to introduce world class services to Morocco. When the company entered the African market in 2008/2009, colocation was not yet available, and education in the market became an important role for N+ONE to be sure the market understood what should be considered a “proper” data center facility. It became quickly evident that using Uptime Institute, the gold standard in data center certifications and related services was the right answer. Currently, N+ONE has over 4000 sqm of white space with the option to deploy an additional 12,000 square meters in a relatively short time.

“Our partnership with Uptime Institute will continue, in fact we are in our final stages of certifying a second facility, and plan to continue our certification path and education to learn more about consistency, transparency and industry best practices into data center management and operations processes.”

Solution

The N+ONE team found the Tier certification process both from the design to the construction side to be very enlightening. The team felt it was a tremendous learning experience.

The assessments were smooth for the organization, as many had begun the journey with Uptime Institute Educational Training prior to embarking on the Tier Certification and assessments. N+ONE started the process by training staff as Accredited Tier Designers (ATD) before beginning the certification in order to begin with a strong start and make the overall experience simple and straight forward. The N+ONE team felt they knew and understood what needed to be accomplished after acquiring their individual ATD designations.

N+ONE is a full-service data center with services ranging from plain colo (space and power) to a rich catalogue of value-added services, including Private and Public Cloud and PaaS. Essentially, it boils down to the fact that downtime is not an option. N+ONE customers include a large number of critical systems that are vital for Morocco and there is an obligation to deploy all the means necessary to deliver on the N+ONE promise.
