DataPoint – Baltimore Tidepoint Data Center

Now owned and operated by Expedient Data Centers, DataPoint’s Baltimore Tide Point data center is located at 1050 Hull Street, Baltimore MD, 21230.

Expedient’s Tide Point data center offers clients a secure, efficient and cost-effective environment for their IT infrastructure assets. The data center is over 22,000 sq. with 11,000 square feet of raised floor space. The data center’s operation console control center deploys a multi-layered security system that includes 24 hour a day, seven day a week security personnel, continuous video surveillance, biometric hand access and key card access control. A VESDA air sampling system, FM-200 and a dry-pipe fire suppression system also protects assets from any kind of fire threat. Security, power and network capacity is monitored at all times and predictive modeling is deployed so that problems can be identified before they occur. Finally, the network is powered by a Cisco back bone with redundant routers which eliminates single point failures and provides uninterrupted data flow across the network. These redundant systems are also why the data center is SSAE-16 and PCI certified.

In order to maintain maximum uptime, power, network and cooling systems are state of the art, and employ multiple redundancies. Dual power feeds deliver power to the facility, and the architecture is anchored by 6 UPS auto-fail over systems. 3 1,000 kilowatt Diesel generators are also on site which can produce 3 megawatts of additional power when necessary. The cooling system consists of 16 Liebert air handlers which provide over 400 tons of cooling, and the operations control center monitors and regulates temperature and humidity at all times.

In addition to its Tide Point data center, Expedient operates 9 data centers throughout the United States, including east coast locations such as Boston and Baltimore, and mid-west locations such as Cleveland, Columbus, Indianapolis and Pittsburgh. In addition to its colocation services, Expedient offers clients additional managed services such as cloud computing, managed servers, virtual on-demand, and managed exchange email.
