Lupfig, 4th February 2021 – Green today announced that they have been honored with the Uptime Institute’s Management & Operations (M&O) Stamp of Approval. Green is the first commercial data center provider in Switzerland to receive this award.

The Management and Operations Stamp of Approval was created by the Uptime Institute to provide unbiased, independent assessment confirming a data center meets a set of benchmarks that promote effective data center best practices and minimize human error, which is a leading cause of data center failure. “Recognizing the critical importance that data centers have in our society as we enter a more digital world, we felt it was essential to rise to the challenge of delivering the best service possible,” says Ashley Davis, Board Member of Green.

The M&O assessment evaluates all aspects of operations, including planning, coordination and management, staffing and organization, training, operating conditions and maintenance. Only a select number of data centers qualify for the M&O Stamp of Approval, and with this award, Green’s Zurich West Data Center has now been honored with this accolade from the Uptime Institute for its outstanding management and operations.

“We acknowledge that having a world-class mission-critical ethos that applies to all our staff members and operations functions is key to our continued success in Switzerland. We are proud of our track record of continuous availability. This award further augments ISG’s recognition of Green as the no. 1 in the Swiss market in 2020,” says Roger Süess, CEO of Green. The Green teams have a mission-critical mindset that is implemented throughout the company via a 5-prong approach to service excellence. The staffing model comprises industry experts, with defined roles and responsibilities, and a comprehensive understanding of functions and integration of systems.

With the construction of another 46,000 m2 data center campus near Zurich and the internationally recognized award, Green is consistently pursuing its growth strategy. This opens up the opportunity for hyperscalers, enterprise customers and integrators to obtain their fundamental digital needs from one single source in Switzerland − and to record sustainable growth.
