New York Philharmonic Teams Up With Webair to Connect to NY1 Data Center

The New York Philharmonic is beefing up its technology. The arts organization hired Webair to manage its cloud, colocation and managed solutions. As a part of the deal, Webair will connect the NY Philharmonic to NY1 Data Center on Long Island. Webair will also provide heightened cyber security to the organization’s IT system.

“The New York Philharmonic was looking for a provider with a state-of-the art network architecture to service its Internet infrastructure requirements, and in selecting Webair gained a strategic end-to-end cloud and services solutions partner that exceeded our diverse technical and business needs,” Terri-Ann Feindt, Director of Information Technology at the New York Philharmonic said in a statement. “Relocating a colocation environment is a challenging undertaking under any circumstances.  With only 90-days’ notice, Webair quickly developed a comprehensive plan in collaboration with my technical team to ensure a seamless migration that met the business requirement of no downtime and included a failsafe contingency plan.”

In addition to connecting the NY Philharmonic to NY1 Data Center, Webair will host the organizations Leon Levy Digital Archives, which serves as a repository for nearly 175 years of Philharmonic history, and is the oldest and most comprehensive collection of any symphony orchestra. The archives contain over 1.3 million pages, including printed programs, marked conducting scores, business documents, and photographs, dating back to 1842.  The Digital Archives will contain more than 3 million pages. It is set for completion in 2018.
