Bibliomation Moves ILS Servers to Digital BackOffice CT Data Center

Bibliomation completed the installation of server and network hardware at the Digital BackOffice data center during the July 4th holiday weekend.  Bibliomation is Connecticut’s largest library consortium. Sixty (60) public libraries and nineteen (19) schools share an Evergreen ILS with centralized cataloging and a shared computer network connected on CEN. Bibliomation is Connecticut’s only open source library consortium.

The DBO and Bibliomation management teams have worked together for many years on many different network and computer migrations.  The Biblio team began a search for a new co-location data center provider in Q1, 2014, and DBO responded quickly.  With a combination of added value services, a track record for delivering on service level guarantees and competitive pricing, Bibliomation signed a multi-year server co-location agreement with DBO in March.

“Our board and our IT staff trust Digital BackOffice and view them as partners rather than a vendor”, said Carl DeMilia, Executive Director of Bibliomation.  “The DBO team has years of networking experience and they understand the unique connectivity requirements between our member libraries, the Evergreen ILS and the Connecticut Education Network (CEN).  Digital BackOffice had already installed a fiber optic connection to CEN at their expense.   We are pleased to continue the relationship with Digital BackOffice and with the relocation of our ILS server hardware to DBO’s Connecticut data center.”

The Digital BackOffice is no stranger to the public sector and to organizations like Bibliomation.  DBO cloud and managed IT service customers include Stamford Public Schools, the City of Norwalk, Achievement First Charter Schools, New Haven Public Schools, the Town of Wethersfield and many more.  Digital BackOffice has redefined public sector expectations for IT services, cost of ownership and reliability.

The Digital BackOffice is a business unit of Advanced Corporate Networking, a Connecticut based business incorporated in 1991.  “By specializing in niche markets, like public libraries, we develop expertise and an understanding of the needs of similar customers”, said Francis Palacio, President of Advanced Corporate Networking.   “Digital BackOffice helps our libraries, schools and government entities bridge the IT support gap and better utilize high speed services like CEN, the Nutmeg Network and Bibliomation”.
