Data center and cloud solutions provider TierPoint
has partnered with Compass Datacenters (Compass). TierPoint, which has headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri, United States, was established in 2010. The company specializes in a broad range of areas including colocation, cloud computing, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) options, managed services, and disaster recovery (DRaaS) packages. It operates 40 data centers across the United States and its carrier-neutral facilities are SSAE 16 certified. TierPoint’s partnership with Compass will focus on the expansion of its facility at the Research Triangle Park (RTP) in North Carolina, United States.
Compass, which has headquarters in Dallas, Texas, United States, was founded in 2011. The company “provides solutions from the core to the edge” that target “cloud and SaaS providers, enterprises, colocation and hosting companies”. Together the companies will work on a $20 million expansion of TierPoint’s facility, adding around 9,000 square feet of office area to the facility's existing production space. The center will also offer 1.2 megawatts of capacity, which is expandable to 3.6 megawatts, and provide “high-efficiency cooling; diverse high-speed network connectivity; and multi-layer physical security”.
"We're excited to continue building on our TierPoint partnership," explained Chris Crosby, the CEO of Compass Datacenters. "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."
"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," added Keith Markley, the Executive Vice President of Data Center Operations at TierPoint.Do you know of any other companies involved in new partnerships?
