Vendor independent assessment of our clients data centre infrastructure  and  operations

Data Centre Assessment Service

5NINES developed the Data Centre Assessment Service to identify and oversee the realisation of operation and capital cost savings in all business sectors. Historically rationalisation of data centre assets with the associated change and migration requirements has been perceived as too expensive. However, in recent years data centre operating costs have grown disproportionately to most other business expenses as legacy data centres become economically unsustainable. Hence there is the potential to realise significant savings within a very short period of time.


Data Centre Planning Service

5NINES technical infrastructure consultants are data centre development experts who protect 5NINES development interests and have clear remit to ensure that every plan can actually be delivered, not only on time, but with strict financial and governance guidelines. 


5NINES have made these unique skills available to the wider business community, whether for a developer or an end user in order to help bring more projects to successful completion and to mitigate our clients risk and protect their budget


Converting your data centre vision in to reality. 5NINES development planning teams will commence the process with a detailed plan which includes all aspects of the project.



Protecting you from the unknown state of your current or planned data centre we provide a comparison of each facility against these defined standards

Data Centre Tier Review Service

When considering a new build or fit-out our consultants will help by undertaking a delivery risk assessment which is designed to expose any items that could lead to failing a full Uptime Institute accredited site audit, or we could just provide operational management with peace of mind, knowing that your data centre meets your business objectives. 


Whilst no reputable firm would deliberately ignore critical stages of the development cycle, we have found facilities and operators who have failed in some of the most basic quality checks, such as not fully completing the Integrated System Test Certification (IST). However these 'hidden' facts are not necessarily understood in the typical haste to install systems and have been allowed to occur as sites are rushed to market.

We believes that every client should know and understand the potential for these risks and then make informed decisions in full knowledge of the real situation.
