TierPoint + Compass Data Centers Partner on $20 Million Expansion of RTP Data Center
RALEIGH, NC – TierPoint, a leading provider of secure, connected data center and cloud solutions at the edge of the internet, today announced plans to expand its state-of-the-art data center in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park (RTP), in partnership with Compass Datacenters. TierPoint expects the expansion to be completed and available to clients early next year.
The $20 million expansion plan calls for approximately 9,000 sq. feet of added office and support space; 24,000 sq. ft. of new raised floor, more than tripling the production space of the original facility; fully redundant and generator-backed power, with initial, critical load capacity of 1.2 megawatts (expandable to 3.6 megawatts); high-efficiency cooling; diverse high-speed network connectivity; and multi-layer physical security, meeting stringent regulatory compliance standards.
“Expanding our world-class RTP data center allows us to respond to the significant demand we’ve seen for colocation and cloud solutions in this region,” said TierPoint Executive Vice President of Data Center Operations Keith Markley.
“We’re excited to continue building on our TierPoint partnership,” said Compass Datacenters CEO Chris Crosby. “The RTP expansion is a textbook example of two companies working together, in real time, to address today’s market realities. This project will provide a future-proof, state-of-the-art facility and flexible growth options for TierPoint customers.”
