This new recognition makes 4Degrees the only data center in the region of Quebec City to obtain this level of certification. The Uptime Institute (www.uptimeinstitute.com), headquartered in New York, combed through all elements of the 4Degrees infrastructure to ensure it meets the most stringent enterprise-grade performance standards.

"We are immensely proud of this incredible achievement. At 4Degrees, our goal has always been to provide our customers with a completely reliable infrastructure and unfailing robustness. This independent certification confirms to our customers that at 4Degrees nothing is left to chance," said 4Degrees's CEO Martin Bouchard, who is one of the 25 leading pioneers of Information Technology (IT) in the Quebec province.

At a time when rules and requirements are tightened to protect the integrity and confidentiality of data, 4Degrees does not skimp on safety features: 24/7 security guards, over fifty surveillance cameras, robust underground power, redundant fiber optics, biometric recognition system, robust building structure with anti-seismic compliance and much more. All this in a new building that was custom designed and strategically located to get the best quality of service.

4Degrees is a carrier neutral colocation center that allows clients to choose the Internet access best suited to their needs, regardless of the provider. It will also offer office space, as well as a work area available to technicians dispatched to the site.
