Neuberger Berman, an independent global asset management firm, has chosen a Switch and Data site in the northeastern United States to house its critical operations infrastructure, both companies said.
Switch and Data, a provider of network-neutral data center and Internet exchange services, noted that Neuberger Berman will use Switch and Data’s 24x7 TechSmart remote technical support service to enable quick site turn-up and provide post-deployment infrastructure maintenance and troubleshooting.
“Reliable infrastructure is mission-critical for a financial services company and this deployment is a crucial element of our operations,” said Paul Metzger, managing director of Neuberger Berman. “By selecting Switch and Data, we gain access to a modern, advanced site with the security, connectivity, and reliability needed to protect our systems today, as well as the space and power availability to scale for the future.”
Switch and Data’s high-performance data centers are provided with full N+1 redundancy for their UPS, generator and cooling infrastructures and have been designed to support customer power and cooling requirements up to 200 watts per square foot and are provided with 24x7 security and remote technical support.
“Companies in the financial services industry have rigorous technical and reliability requirements for their data center facilities, with connectivity to personnel, clients and capital markets at the forefront of their concerns,” said John Panzica, vice president of Switch and Data's Financial Services Practice. “We are proud that an industry leader like Neuberger Berman has chosen our site and our staff to protect the more than $160 billion in assets that flow through its infrastructure.”
Switch and Data operates 34 sites in the U.S. and Canada, provides one of the highest customer satisfaction scores for technical and engineering support in the industry, and is home to PAIX — the world's first commercial Internet exchange.
