ST. LOUIS, Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TierPoint, a leading provider of secure, connected IT platform solutions that power digital transformation initiatives, today announced it has completed construction of a new Tier III data center at 2315 Millpark Drive in Maryland Heights, Missouri, a St. Louis suburb.

Backed by an approximately $20 million commitment, the state-of-the-art facility currently includes 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.

World Wide Technology (WWT), a global technology solutions provider with headquarters in St. Louis, has signed on as an anchor tenant of the new facility.

“WWT's ever-expanding need for data center space drove us to partner with TierPoint,” said Mike Taylor, WWT Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President, Services.“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.

We look forward to growing all aspects of our relationship in the future.”
