Infotech Lead America: B&H, a New York-based company, has selected FiberMedia Group, a data center services provider.
B&H Photo has chosen FiberMedia Group’s New York-area data center for its primary compute infrastructure that manages the company’s online and store front operations.
“FiberMedia’s team has taken the time to intimately understand our business and the unique needs that our online retail business requires,” said Shlome Seidenfeld, CIO of B&H Photo. “Their ability to provide us with high standards of security along with flexibility, at an affordable cost, was a true differentiator driving our selection.”
B&H’s selection of FiberMedia signifies its transition from managing in-house solutions to outsourcing its data center and colocation needs. The solution delivered to B&H includes a custom, private-caged, space and cooling environment. The space includes 2N redundant environmental and mechanical infrastructure including power and cooling. Outsourcing its data center provides B&H flexibility in its infrastructure with expansion capabilities to support business growth.
“We are proud to announce that B&H Photo has moved their primary data center infrastructure to one of our data center locations,” said John Panzica, SVP Sales & Marketing for FiberMedia. “Since the company’s inception, B&H has built and operated its own data centers. The trust bestowed upon FiberMedia during this operational transition period has been rewarding and we look forward to providing B&H the support and infrastructure it needs to grow its business.”
