TierPoint Announces Acquisition of AlteredScale Data Center in Chicago

TierPoint, a U.S. provider of cloud hosting, colocation, managed services and disaster recovery solutions, has announced the acquisition of AlteredScale – a Chicago-based provider of data center services including cloud, colocation and managed services. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The new 107,000 square feet facility includes approximately 25,000 square feet of colocation data center space and has undergone extensive renovations and upgrades since being purchased by AlteredScale in 2011.

The acquisition is the tenth for TierPoint, LLC. On October 19, 2015, the company announced the signing of a definitive agreement to purchase Windstream Hosting Solutions. That transaction is expected to close this month.

Upon closing both acquisitions, TierPoint will own and operate more than 525,000 square feet of colocation data center space in 19 U.S. markets. With its corporate headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri, TierPoint operates highly-redundant, carrier-neutral data centers in the states of Illinois, Washington, Texas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Florida.
