 What is a Tier 1 Data Centre?

A Tier 1 provider typically offers 99.9% up-time, impressive security, continuous and clean power, and protection from fire, earthquakes, and other disasters.

All Teckna servers are hosted in Tier 1 data centres.

The most important characteristic of a Tier 1 provider is its Internet backbone. They provide direct paths over major data highways, in comparison to Tier 2 providers, that may need to send your data across several slower roads.

A Tier 1 provider can take you from the South of England to the North of Scotland in one big step, while Tier 2 providers may need to pass your data to other networks along the way.
