The datacenters certifications shows a great overview of their overall abilities. I often evaluate location, interconnect providers, availability, and the ability to support the workloads needs.

Many factors: Tier level, uptime availability statistics, location, interconnect providers and related latencies, physical security, remote management capabilities.
