Alamy today announces that it has extended its server infrastructure to NYI’s data center in Los Angeles, to serve the company’s growing West Coast customer base.
In July 2011, NYI successfully oversaw Alamy’s upgrade for North America, and now the company will manage the West Coast activity. The Alamy servers in the Los Angeles data center will make searching for images on the West Coast as fast as on the East Coast.
Richard Taylor, Head of Production at Alamy, commented: “We continue to sign deals with international companies, and to expand our global footprint.”
“We are also committed to ensuring service levels and speed remain as consistent as possible for our global client base. As such, we will be making further announcements in relation to infrastructure upgrades, underpinning our planned growth.”
Fabienne Read, US Sales Team Manager at Alamy, added: “Our plan is to make Alamy the fastest stock photography site in the US, and we have already seen there is a real appetite from West Coast clients for both the size and eclectic nature of the Alamy collection.”
“What Etsy did for the arts and crafts community, Alamy is doing for photography,” added Phillip Koblence, VP Operations, NYI. “Our team thrives on creating custom infrastructure solutions for such dynamic and disruptive startups.”
