DELIVERS ITS 3RD DATA CENTER IN ST. LOUIS AREA
Data center service provider, TierPoint, has just announced the completion of construction at its new Tier III data center on 2315 Millpark Drive in Maryland Heights, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis.
Backed by an approximately $20 million commitment, plans to build the data center were first announced in September 2021. With this completion, the facility now provides 14,500 square feet of production or raised floor space and 23,000 square feet of total space, with an additional 23,000 square feet under lease for future expansion.
Already, World Wide Technology (WWT), a technology solutions provider with headquarters in St. Louis, has signed an agreement with TierPoint to become an anchor tenant at the new facility.
“WWT’s ever-expanding need for data center space drove us to partner with TierPoint. TierPoint’s Millpark facility is close to our global headquarters and tech campus in St. Louis, which allows us to scale operationally in our Advanced Technology Center,” said Mike Taylor, Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President, Services, WWT.
“The WWT and TierPoint strategic partnership includes going to market together to solve customer challenges and serving as a strategic supplier of software, hardware and services to TierPoint, as they grow their business. We look forward to growing all aspects of our relationship in the future.”
The new facility is TierPoint’s fourth data center in Missouri and the third in the St. Louis metropolitan area outside of downtown. The company’s other data center is located in the Kansas City area. In total, TierPoint operates 40 data centers around the country, offering a portfolio of IT infrastructure solutions.
Also in Missouri, Meta, formerly known as the Facebook Company, recently announced that it is building its newest hyperscale data center in Kansas City. The development of the new data center which will be located in the Golden Plains Technology Park, is expected to cost over $800 million and span nearly 1 million-square feet.
