New York-Hawthorne Data Center

TierPoint’s New York-Hawthorne data center (also referred to as Metro NYC) is located just 20 minutes from midtown Manhattan, but safely outside of major threat zones near the shared border between Connecticut and New York. The data center is tucked away in a picturesque area south of the beautiful Rockefeller Park Preserve, Graham Hills Park, Hardscrabble Wilderness Area and Sleepy Hallow Country Club; yet conveniently located between the Sprain Brook Parkway and the Saw Mill River Parkway.
The facility is spread across two adjacent buildings of 160,000 square feet, containing both state-of-the-art data center infrastructure and high-tech business continuity space. The site is fiber connected to both Manhattan and TierPoint’s other POPs along the east coast. These facilities are strategically located to provide “Peace of Mind” even in the face of disaster. In addition, the facility is audited under SSAE 18 Type 2 SOC 2, PCI-DSS1*, GLBA and HIPAA standards annually. ITAR and EU-US Privacy Shield registered.
