How to become a Data Center Expert?
Many services that we take for granted in our daily business depend on data centers. From a simple bank transaction to sending e-mails, the range of services dependent on data centers should not be underestimated. To secure the availability of such data center 24/7, operators need to implement measures in terms of availability and physical security, in order to ensure that we can continue to take these things for granted. The TSI.PROFESSIONAL training by TÜV Informationstechnik GmbH (TÜViT) aims at enhancing the knowledge of people in the data center environment in terms of the crucial factors that affect the availability and physical security of mission critical infrastructures of data centers and in the context of a certification.
