NYI is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Over the past two decades, NYI has transformed from a small website design and hosting company serving a handful of local enterprises to a leading customized, mission-critical solutions provider delivering services from coast to coast. 

With humble beginnings as the brain child of brothers Erik and Phillip Koblence, NYI has grown into one of the most trusted leaders in enterprise-class infrastructure solutions, serving numerous verticals, including media and publishing, financial services, technology, and life sciences. Through the years, three key pillars of NYI's philosophy have driven the growth and success of the company — accessibility, responsibility, and a hyper-focus on customer success. These core values remain intact today and continue to drive the company to remain at the forefront of the industry.

Another major contributor to the company's success has been its consistent 100% uptime in the face of natural disasters and forces majeure over the last 20 years. NYI data centers were engineered for resilience with N+1 UPS configurations. The New York facility offers over 2 megawatts of power, and the New Jersey data center has 5 megawatts of power and a 2N generator configuration. In addition, NYI's fully meshed, BGP4-based, fault-tolerant network offers no single point of failure.

"It is incredible to look back on the past 20 years of NYI's history," states Phil Koblence, chief operating officer of NYI. "I was just a kid when this company was created, commuting back and forth from college on the weekends to consult with companies on their IT environments and host their websites. While our offerings have grown substantially and evolved, our core values remain the same today as they did at the beginning. NYI doesn't just bark a solution at our customers. We speak with customers individually to gain insight into their requirements and develop unique, custom-tailored solutions." 

"I'm very proud of NYI and its growth over the past two decades," said Erik Koblence, chief executive officer of NYI. "NYI's evolution from a small website design company to the infrastructure services provider we are today gave us a first-hand understanding of the growing pains companies experience. That is why we are so in tune with problem solving and designing the best IT solutions for our clients."
