TierPoint understands the unique needs of those who work in the field of education. From financial accountability to enhanced security, our tailored solutions have helped increase the effectiveness and productivity of educational institutions. Online enrollment, secure application access and the explosive growth of online learning require both robust infrastructure and thorough support, usually amid a demanding fiscal environment. We can do that.

TierPoint counts some of the world’s largest and most prestigious educational institutions and universities not only as neighbors, but also as longtime customers.  We know the pulse of academic life demands high-availability, “always on” IT resources and technical partnerships. Business Continuity and 100% application availability are critical.

With this in mind, TierPoint offers a variety of data center infrastructure, cloud, WAN and customized solutions that allow education IT executives to rapidly deal with today’s growing challenges by outsourcing at an affordable price. We offer:

  • Compliance in a rapidly, enormously changing marketplace. Application processes need to be secure, as do student records
  • High levels of service to keep you competitive, because when it comes to online learning, technical problems turn away potential students and sour current ones on your program
  • Redundancy, so that records remain secure and intact

Stability, reliability, flexibility, scalability and security all are paramount to your Grade-A success and staying competitive in an ever-crowded environment.

We specialize in studying your ever changing IT challenges and matching them with tested, proven solutions so that you can get past the learning curve and focus on what you do best – recruiting and teaching students.

We shorten learning curves by offering your institution a full suite of resources – including human ones who do their homework on your particular needs. And because our data protection works behind the scenes, you don’t have to cram for how to integrate it into your daily workflow.

Whether you want data at your fingertips or infrastructure that not just passes, but exceeds, your requirements, TierPoint will send you to the head of the class.
