Asset management firm Neuberger Berman has completed an agreement with Digital Realty Trust through which Neuberger Berman will establish a large data center in a Digital Realty Trust turn-key data center facility in the northeastern United States.
"This data center will be a key element of Neuberger Berman's IT infrastructure, supporting advanced applications that will enable us to continue to serve our customers while growing each segment of our business as an independent asset management firm," said Paul Metzger, senior vice president for Information Technology at Neuberger Berman. "This space enables us to pursue an accelerated timeline for our datacenter project because it is ready to move into immediately with all of the security, redundant power and technical specifications to support and protect our IT systems."
"Companies in the financial services and brokerage industry have technical requirements for their data centers that make facility selection a very important decision," said Chris Crosby, senior vice president of Digital Realty Trust. "These data centers need to be located in facilities with a combination of features that are difficult to find, including advanced power and disaster recovery systems, ultra low-latency fiber connectivity, dedicated infrastructure, superior physical security and more."
