TierPoint, a U.S. provider of hybrid IT solutions, has completed the planned expansions of its Marlborough (Boston West Metro) and Baltimore data centers – adding approximately 15,500 square feet of high-density data center space to its U.S. data center footprint.
Together, the expansions further enhance TierPoint‘s capacity for cloud, colocation, disaster recovery and IT security services in the Northeast region. Both data centers are SSAE 16, SOC 2 Type II compliant facilities.
TierPoint invested a total of $13 million in the Marlborough and Baltimore projects, with most of that investment made in 2016, culminating a total of nearly $45 million invested in expansion projects this year.
The Marlborough data center expansion added nearly 12,500 square feet of raised floor to one of TierPoint’s largest facilities, which now encompasses approximately 215,000 square feet of total space. In addition to the expansion, upgrades were made to the electrical and mechanical infrastructure, using green technologies to further reduce the carbon footprint of the facility.
TierPoint’s Baltimore data center is one of the largest carrier-neutral data centers in the state of Maryland. The completed expansion adds approximately 3,000 square feet of raised floor to the 30,000 square feet facility as well as adding UPS capacity. As a result of strong demand for the new expansion space, the company is already considering further expansion in the Baltimore market in 2017.
