Several leading data center providers reported this week that they have competed audits of their facilities:
- DuPont Fabros Technology - Wholesale data center developer DuPont Fabros Technology (DFT) today announced that the control procedures for its data centers that required the certification have been found to be suitable in design and operating effectively according to Service Organization Control Reports ("SOC1"). These were prepared under Statement of Standards for Attestation Engagement No. 16 ("SSAE 16") by one of the Big 4 independent auditing firms. "We're committed to operating our data centers and facilities at a level that meets or exceeds the highest industry and regulatory standards," said Hossein Fateh, President and Chief Executive Officer of DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. "We will continue to obtain annual SSAE 16 reports for all future properties we develop, place in service and operate."
- IO - Modular data center specialist IO said the company has completed a SSAE 16 Type 2 audit covering three operational data centers – IO New Jersey, IO Phoenix and IO Scottsdale.
