NYI has announced that it has been chosen by StatSocial, a premier provider of social data, to fully manage its critical IT infrastructure. Migrating from a public cloud service to NYI’s fully managed hybrid solution not only reduces StatSocial’s operating costs, but it also increases scalability and enables its core IT team to focus on key business growth and innovation.
StatSocial’s IT environment was initially comprised of unmanaged, dedicated servers and a public cloud service. As the company grew, it quickly became apparent that the environment would be increasingly difficult to manage in-house. Its team looked to NYI to migrate to a more scalable, dynamic and fully managed architecture.
“Like many fast-growing tech companies, we found it easy to spin up environments in the cloud, but quickly realized it made no sense to scale in that environment,” comments Michael Hussey, chief executive officer, StatSocial. “With NYI, we now have a fully managed solution that ensures our core services run reliably, efficiently, and are specifically tailored to our unique needs. NYI has given us back our CTO, who can now focus on supporting development and growth initiatives instead of infrastructure challenges. Perhaps most impressive was how quickly NYI became a seamless extension of our technology team, and at a fraction of the cost of trying to do it all ourselves."
StatSocial enables brands and publishers to understand, segment and target their web-based audiences by evaluating demographics and lifestyles. Using over 40,000 defining variables, StatSocial provides companies with an incredibly detailed perspective of audience composition and characteristics — a powerful tool in today’s data-driven marketplace.
“For over 20 years, we’ve been helping companies with our customized solutions and ensuring they are fully optimized across the board,” adds Phillip Koblence, co-founder and chief operations officer, NYI. “With our hybrid services, enterprises, SMBs and start-ups can find the right solution for each and every server and application. It would be virtually impossible to find that level of flexibility with a public cloud provider.”
