HAWTHORNE, N.Y., May 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TierPoint LLC announced that it is significantly increasing its capacity to serve the New York metropolitan area and Northeast region through an expansion of its Hawthorne campus.
This represents the third major expansion project since the facility opened. Today, the Hawthorne campus includes a recovery and business continuity center with over 70,000 square feet and a data center with 52,000 square feet of raised floor. TierPoint’s current expansion plan anticipates adding over 38,000 square feet of raised floor, more than a third of which (13,500 square feet) will be added in a first $13-million phase that’s expected to be customer-ready this November.
“This expansion will further enhance our ability to meet growing demand, especially for customers in the financial industry who count on ultra-low latency network connectivity to midtown and lower Manhattan,” said John Vernazza, TierPoint Regional Vice President. “Because of its location outside New York City’s 12-mile blast zone and the 500-year flood zone, the Hawthorne facility is well-positioned to deliver disaster recovery solutions, including business continuity workspace.”
TierPoint client Hudson River HealthCare (HRHCare), one of the nation’s largest community health providers, chose Hawthorne for several strategic reasons. HRHCare Vice President of IT Eric Brosius said the location and TierPoint’s ability to help support his organization’s colocation and managed-service needs were key differentiators when selecting a hybrid IT provider. “With their extensive capabilities, multiple fiber-connected sites, and flexible solutions, TierPoint was the perfect fit,” said Brosius. “I’m confident TierPoint will continue to be a valuable partner as our business expands and our IT needs evolve.”
The Hawthorne facility, like all TierPoint data centers, meets compliance standards for HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GLBA and SOC 2 Type II. TierPoint also holds EU-US Privacy Shield certification and ITAR registration on a company-wide basis.
