NEW YORK, NY – September 08, 2016 – NYI, an enterprise-grade data center and managed IT solutions provider enabling clients to build customized infrastructure, announces its partnership with Dorel Sports, a segment of Dorel Industries, Inc. (TSX: DII.B, DII.A) with one of the most comprehensive portfolios of brands in the bicycling and recreational industries, including Cannondale, Schwinn, GT, Mongoose, Caloi, IronHorse, Kid Trax, Charge, Guru, Fabric and SUGOI. NYI’s comprehensive services provide Dorel Sports with a cost-effective solution to consolidate its applications that are critical to its daily operations. This consolidation improves Dorel Sports’ infrastructure performance, while continuing to reduce associated risk and costs.
NYI provides Dorel Sports with managed colocation and network services out of its New Jersey and Seattle data centers. In addition, Dorel Sports utilizes NYI’s managed infrastructure solutions, including storage, firewalls, as well as managed Amazon Web Services (AWS). This enables the company to directly connect to AWS, as well as interconnect between the Company’s primary data center in New Jersey and secondary data center in Washington state. This secondary data center enhances Dorel Sports’ disaster recovery position via virtualization, ensuring 100% uptime. NYI is also working with Dorel Sports on managing their SAP environment through its enabled ecosystem of partners.
“Our partnership with Dorel Sports is one that exemplifies the true power and breadth of our team and facilities here at NYI,” states Phil Koblence, COO of NYI. “Our relationship with Dorel Sports has continued to evolve, as their needs have grown and they have been able to avail themselves of our managed capabilities. Creating solutions for our customers that allow them to achieve both infrastructure and operational efficiencies is key to our value proposition.”
“NYI’s platform and services have alleviated the headache we were facing by having our critical applications distributed across aging infrastructure in 19 global computers rooms, as well as on AWS,” states Dhiresh Jethwa, Vice President and Chief Information Officer of Dorel Sports. “By consolidating applications, we are able to reduce our infrastructure cost while improving performance and reducing risk through enhancing the Dorel Sports disaster recovery position. We rest assured that our applications are in good hands as NYI’s sales and technical support teams have proven very responsive and knowledgeable, responding to all support tickets very quickly.”
Using NYI to manage its public cloud environment on AWS has also allowed Dorel Sports to implement a small SAP High-Performance Analytic Appliance (HANA) environment for a specific SAP S/4 application. This allows the company to rapidly deploy a HANA certified solution without long-term commitments or initial investments.
