The past 20 years are full of technology milestones and innovations. Looking back here are just a few:

– Amazon introduced its 1-Click feature, which enabled customers to securely store their credit card info and make purchases with a single tap of their mouse

– Apple introduced the iPhone

– We also got Uber, formed as a way to solve San Fran’s cab problem

Each of these companies responded to a need it saw in the marketplace. And over the past 20 years, the New York Internet Company (first incorporated in 1996) grew from a small website design firm into a
NYI 20 Yearsrobust enterprise-grade data center and managed IT solutions provider. NYI Co-founders Phil Koblence and Erik Koblence recognized 20 years ago that the Internet would transform how we live, think and work. By capitalizing on a gutsy idea, the two brothers went from helping companies with their computers to designing websites to hosting websites – and evolved into what NYI is doing today – owner/operator of over 70,000 sq. ft. of state-of-the-art data center space across its New York and New Jersey data centers. Offering cloud computing, colocation, managed and disaster recovery services, NYI has been focused on serving its customers since day one. The company also provides its full enterprise-class infrastructure solutions coast to coast through its data center space in Seattle and Los Angeles.

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.

“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 and evolved substantially, 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.”

With a pulse on what’s hot in the industry, NYI also recently announced its participation in the Startup Infrastructure in a Post-Cloud Era event to be held April 21, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. at the LMHQ NYI Cloud Event 2016
