Globe Newswire: TierPoint to Build Second Tulsa Data Center
TULSA, Okla., May 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TierPoint LLC today announced plans to build a new state-of-the-art data center in the Tulsa area.
Partnering with Compass Datacenters, TierPoint’s ultimate plan for the new facility anticipates approximately 60,000 sq. ft. of total space. The initial phase, on which the company estimates construction will be completed later this year, involves an investment of approximately $20 million, supporting approximately 30,000 sq. ft. of total space and 16,000 sq. ft. of raised floor. The new facility, to be located in Broken Arrow, will also include infrastructure support and office space.
“Access to reasonably priced land and electrical power have made Oklahoma one of the nation’s most inviting data center locations,” said TierPoint Vice President and General Manager Todd Currie. “We’ve seen growing interest in enterprise-class IT solutions in both Tulsa and Oklahoma City, including cloud, colocation, disaster recovery, security and other managed services.”
TierPoint already operates a 37,000 sq. ft. data center in Tulsa’s historic Brady district. That facility includes 10,000 sq. ft. of raised floor, with additional space used for business continuity, offices and infrastructure support. In early 2016, TierPoint opened the state’s largest commercial data center at the time, a $30 million facility in Oklahoma City, with nearly 70,000 sq. ft. of total space. The new Tulsa facility will be the company’s fourth data center in Oklahoma.
