demand for secure colocation, managed hosting and cloud services and
demonstrates TierPoint's commitment to growing the Oklahoma market,"

of living, land and electrical power have made it one of the nation's
most inviting data center locations," said Currie.

N+1 redundant power and accommodate up to 30kW per rack. Like all
TierPoint data centers, it will be SSAE 16 audited with 24x7 customer
access. Security will include around the clock onsite personnel,

us the ability to accommodate most any customer configuration and power
requirements," said Currie. The facility will include 10,000 square feet
of Business Continuity office space and offer a private customer lounge
and work areas with multiple large staging rooms for customer installs
