GTBank’s data centre, built with support of its technical partner, Resourcery Plc, has achieved Uptime Institute Tier III Design Certification.
The centre, the first in the Africa to accomplish this feat.
Resourcery worked with the bank, its architects and structural engineers to design and implement the technologies within the stand-alone data centre.
