This week, hybrid IT solutions provider TierPoint announced the completion of the planned expansions of its Marlborough (Boston West Metro) and Baltimore data centers. This expansion adds about 15,500 sq.ft. of data center space to its national data center footprint.

TierPoint claims that both data centers are SSAE 16, SOC 2 Type II compliant facilities. They invested a total of $13 million in the Marlborough and Baltimore projects, with most of that investment made in 2016, a total of nearly $45 million has been invested in expansion projects this year.

The Marlborough data center expansion added nearly 12,500 sq.ft. of raised floor to one of TierPoint’s facilities, which now encompasses approximately 215,000 sq.ft. 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. This is the second major expansion of the carrier-neutral Marlborough data center within the past two years.

TierPoint claims that the Baltimore data center is one of the largest carrier-neutral data centers in the state of Maryland. The expansion adds approximately 3,000 sq.ft. of raised floor to the 30,000 sq.ft. facility.
