* According to the Uptime Institute Owners Advisory Committee, Tier-defined data centers should have a minimum of twelve hours of on-site fuel storage. The Tier standard: The topology requires a minimum of twelve hours of on-site fuel storage for all Tiers to achieve a runtime of 12 hours at “N” load while meeting the facility’s stated topology objective. In other words: Fuel storage must be sufficient enough to support the data center’s design load while working on motor generators for a period of 12 hours and still meeting the Concurrently Maintainable or Fault Tolerant objective. Exceeding the 12-hour minimum is an operational sustainability issue that requires careful analysis of the risks to the data center energy supply.
