Web's Leading Free People Search Engine Provider, PeekYou, Selects NYI as Data Center Partner

In Search of a Reliable Data Center Provider Post-Sandy, PeekYou Opts for NYI's Wall Street Data Center

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- NYI, a New York company specializing in customized technology infrastructure solutions, announces today that PeekYou, the web's leading free people search engine that serves over 6 million monthly visitors, has selected NYI as its primary New York data center and managed services provider. NYI provides a variety of services to PeekYou from its 100 William Street facility in Manhattan, including colocation, managed cloud storage and managed Network Operations Center (NOC) services.

Founded in 2006 and headquartered in New York City, PeekYou is a web-based firm with patented technology that analyzes content from over sixty social sites, news sources, homepages and blog platforms and identifies the actual people behind it, combining their scattered digital footprints into a comprehensive record of their online identity.

"NYI is everything and more that we need in a data center," comments Tom Lynch, President of PeekYou. "After Superstorm Sandy hit, and a less-than-ideal experience occurred at our former data center location, we engaged in a rapid search for a provider that would have our company's needs and interests top of mind; one that would treat our smaller company exactly as it would its larger company customers. I'm happy to say that we found NYI. Within less than 24 hours, NYI provided us with the much needed space, power and bandwidth. In addition, they also facilitated our equipment move, getting us back online without a hitch. The high-level services, flexibility and speed that NYI offers its customers are truly outstanding."

"Our working relationship with PeekYou signifies the true difference that NYI offers to our customers," comments Phillip Koblence, Chief Operating Officer of NYI. "That difference is the high level of service and dedication to satisfaction that we provide to customers, no matter what their size or background. Upon our first contact with the PeekYou, we were able to quickly respond to its team's request and get the company up and running again within just hours, avoiding any further loss of revenue from downtime it had experienced with its former provider. Companies like PeekYou come to NYI not only for our top-notch data center services and facilities, but for our reliability and camaraderie."

NYI's 100%-owner-occupied New York data center located in the heart of Lower Manhattan at 100 William Street offers direct connectivity to all major exchanges and peering networks, along with low-latency access to 999 Frontier, NYI's other facility situated less than 40 miles away in Bridgewater, NJ.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...
The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances. The use of standardized and TCP/IP networked wireless technologies in line-powered and battery operated sensors and controls has led to the adoption of radios in the 2.4GHz band, including Wi-Fi, BT/BLE and 802.15.4 applied ZigBee and Thread. This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
