M&O Stamp of Approval – Proven Operational Excellence and Risk Management

Abstract - The Uptime Institute Management & Operations (M&O) Stamp of Approval encompasses a set of benchmarks and outcome-based behaviors that have been proven to support effective data center operations and reduce risk for both the operator and their customers. Well-informed management practices, systematic and documented policies and procedures, and effective training regimens, when applied and followed consistently, can insulate a data center from the majority of downtime risks. Organizations that have attained the M&O Stamp of Approval have successfully demonstrated leadership and commitment to operational excellence by meeting their assessment criteria.
