TierPoint’s Boston-Marlborough facility is another one of our “sweet spot” facilities. It’s located close to metro Boston and Providence, near the 495 Technology Corridor, yet sufficiently removed to insulate against localized disasters.
This data center is connected via private 10G Fiber to multiple POPs around the country, ensuring resiliency and reliability with our fault-tolerant Gigabit Ethernet IP backbone. As one of our largest facilities, its 200,000+ square feet offers both extensive, state-of-the-art data center infrastructure along with office cubes, private suites and other disaster recovery seating. It’s audited under ITAR, EU-US Privacy, SOC 1, SOC 2, HIPAA, GLBA, and PCI Colo*, PCI Demarc**, and PCI Cloud*** standards annually.
