TierPoint has acquired CxP Data Centers based in Jacksonville, Florida.
TierPoint will gain from the 121,000 sq. ft. facility, which is designed to be hurricane-resistant. The largest colocation facility in northeast Florida will include approximately 65,000 sq. ft. of data center space once fully built out. Its location, within hundreds of yards of the main fiber-optic lines that serve Florida, makes it attractive for companies planning disaster recovery and business continuity.
The facility has a Network Operations Center and Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity space.
“This acquisition is a great fit for TierPoint, expanding upon our growth strategy in Tier 2 markets,” said Jerry Kent, TierPoint’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. CxP Data Centers will immediately be branded as TierPoint.
The acquisition is the eighth for TierPoint. The company has completed its largest acquisition of Xand was completed in December 2014. TierPoint owns and operates more than 365,000 sq. ft. of data center space in 14 U.S. markets.
