Uptime Institute Network

Formed to address and resolve issues affecting data center performance, the Network continues to provide relevant and trending wisdom from and for industry leaders. By identifying best practices, quantifying metrics, and improving organizational and technical efficiency, Network members have steadily improved Facilities and IT operations.

There is no questioning the fact that data centers have issues. The issue that you are dealing with today, someone in the Network more than likely has already solved and survived. The peer-to-peer interaction gives you on-demand consultation and the benefit of someone else's growing pains.

The Uptime Institute Network offers meaningful peer-to-peer interaction and a safe forum for knowledge transfer free from the influence of vendors or concern over trade secrets. Membership includes access to evidence-based best-practice information, benchmarking and reports, detailed error and incident tracking and trends, regional events, and behind-the-scenes tours of state-of-the-art data center facilities. Members benefit from sharing experiences, lessons learned, and solutions. Many members credit their participation in the Network with giving them the keys to their organization’s ongoing success. We invite you to join the Network.

The Institute is now accepting applications for new members in all regions.

For over a decade, participation in the Network has been proven to steadily and quantifiably reduce facility downtime. In fact, the longer members participate, the more they collectively reduce their unplanned downtime frequency and duration. With an investment of just 0.4% of members’ average site operating budget, members have successfully reduced their downtime by a factor of 10.
One member reported a savings of over $80,000 on an equipment purchase, because through an e-mail query to other members, they validated that the type of equipment they were considering would provide the level of reliability they required. This case illustrates how the ability to consult with industry peers can save a company several times the cost of participating in the group. The Institute’s Network maintains a database of information submitted by group participants. Benchmark information includes:
  • Abnormal incident reports, historical data on similar incidents at other facilities, and incident trends by equipment manufacturer
  • Facility site infrastructure profiles of each participating company, including uptime objectives, data center size and characteristics, infrastructure equipment installed, methods of operation (in-house staff or contracted services), organizational reporting relationships, staffing coverage
  • Comparative data center operating cost data by square feet and by kW of UPS load
  • Best practices for assuring infrastructure uptime performance
Companies participating in the Network must execute an Information Exchange Agreement to protect the confidentiality of the data collected and shared. Only participating companies have access to all Network tools and results. Existing members will have the opportunity to review the description of any company wishing to join and raise potential concerns for discussion before a new company is accepted.
