The organization is building out its Hawthorne campus as part of the third major expansion since the facility’s doors opened, according to a release. The Hawthorne campus currently boasts a recovery and business continuity center with over 70,000 square feet. It also features a data center with 52,000 square feet of raised floor.
Throughout the expansion, TierPoint plans to add over 38,000 square feet of raised floor and more than a third of that is expected to be added in the first phase that will set the company back $13-million. According to the company, they plan to have that phase ready for customers 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,” TierPoint Regional Vice President John Vernazza said. “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.”
One of TierPoint’s clients, Hudson River HealthCare (HRHCare), chose the Hawthorne facility for various reasons. According to HRHCare Vice President of IT Eric Brosius, two of those reasons were: location of the facility along with the provider’s ability to help support HRHCare’s colocation and managed- service needs.
“With their extensive capabilities, multiple fiber-connected sites, and flexible solutions, TierPoint was the perfect fit,” Brosius told TierPoint. “I’m confident TierPoint will continue to be a valuable partner as our business expands and our IT needs evolve.”
The Hawthorne facility reportedly meets compliance standards for HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GLBA and SOC 2 Type II. And TierPoint holds EU-US Privacy Shield certification and ITAR registration.
