Independent Colocation Evaluators is a registered LLC consulting firm built from the ground up for colocation and cloud data center evaluations. Company founder, Tory Ziebell, has over thirty years of experience supporting applications that involve data centers. Our credentialed team understands the complex systems within the physical infrastructure. As colocation and cloud data centers increased in popularity, it became apparent that evaluation methods did not involve alignment with risk tolerance. Many evaluations were of a simplistic, home-grown checklist format, or in worst case scenarios, designed for intended result. We set a higher standard for data center evaluations. Our evaluations embody Uptime Institute teachings, a unique process and structure that delivers consistent data along with performance prognosis. Most projects begin with helping clients document their service delivery obligations and reliability needs. We help clients prepare an initial Request for Proposal (RFP). Based on client need, we deploy the appropriate level of evaluation rigor to data centers under consideration. The cornerstones of our evaluation process are transparency, verification, and accountability. The final data center ranking and recommendation is based on an independent evaluation and assessment. Our service establishes a performance baseline and includes constructive remedy for inclusion in service level agreements (SLA). Data center downtime impacts information availability and has a cost. Our mission is to improve data center evaluations and reduce client risk.
