TierPoint, a U.S. provider of hybrid IT solutions, is significantly increasing its capacity to serve the Nashville community through a $20 million expansion of its “state-of-the-art” data center.
TierPoint is partnering with Compass Data Centers on the project, which will more than double the size of the current facility to approximately 53,000 total square feet, with 2.4 MW of power and approximately 26,000 square feet of raised floor space.
The new data center, located in Franklin, is expected to be completed by mid-year and will include dedicated space to be used by clients for their business needs. Total investment in the new Tierpoint facility, including the new expansion, will be approximately $45 million. The original, carrier-neutral facility opened in 2013 with 10,000 square feet of raised floor space.
“This expansion will further enhance our ability to meet strong customer demand for hybrid IT solutions, evidenced by that fact that we’ve already pre-sold nearly 20 percent of the available space in this next phase,” said Bradley Markum, TierPoint’s Regional Vice President for the area. “As Nashville’s leading provider of cloud, colocation and managed services, we now offer new and current customers more expansion and backup capabilities – even as we continue adding clients to our current facility.”
