Ellerbe Becket, Imation Create Strategic Alliance

Design and construction concern Ellerbe Becket today announced a strategic partnership with worldwide data storage and information management provider Imation Corp. The alliance will allow both firms to expand and enhance their services to data center clients.

The technology revolution has increased the need for “mission critical” facilities that house and protect an organization’s key knowledge and data. These buildings guard against problems caused by external factors such as power failure, extreme weather conditions and even earthquakes. Since 1996 alone, Ellerbe Becket has been responsible for planning and creating more than $600 million worth of mission critical facilities.

Imation, based in Oakdale, Minn., is a developer and manufacturer of removable data storage products. Imation’s storage consulting practice has the longest industry track record of offering customers a full lifecycle of independent storage consulting services including assessment, detailed design, proof-of-concept testing and implementation services.

“We both focus on the large enterprise customer,” said Ellerbe Becket Principal Peter Styx. “Through Imation, Ellerbe Becket will be able to offer the additional services of data migration, disaster recovery, high availability, storage monitoring and management, dynamic storage scalability and backup services.”
