TierPoint LLC has 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 Todd Currie, vice president and general manager, TierPoint. “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.
