TierPoint Plans Baltimore, Maryland, Data Center

TierPoint LLC, a leading national provider of hybrid IT solutions, will build a new state-of-the-art commercial data center in the Baltimore, Maryland metropolitan area, less than a year after expanding its current Baltimore facility.

According to company officials, TierPoint's plan calls for a center of approximately 35,000 sq. ft. of total space at BWI Technology Park, with approximately 23,000 sq. ft. of raised floor space.

With an initial investment of more than $10 million, the new carrier-neutral facility will include fully redundant and generator-backed power, and diverse high speed network connectivity.

The data center, which should be available to clients in the spring of 2018, will use multi-layer physical security and will meet stringent regulatory compliance standards. The Maryland facility will also feature infrastructure support, office and shared work space for clients.

"The new data center allows us to respond to growing demand in the Baltimore/Washington DC region, including from the rapidly growing number of information and cybersecurity firms in the BWI corridor," said Jim Weller, TierPoint Vice President & General Manager.

"In addition to the robust power and dense fiber optic connectivity available in the area, the location is easily accessible for current and future customers,” he added.
