The Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association (NBA) have expanded their partnership with the G2 Tech Group.
The computer and network solutions company, which has been a team vendor for several years, will provide the Celtics with cloud infrastructure services.
G2 assisted the NBA franchise in developing a robust and secure cloud computing environment. It also provides strategic consulting and implementation support, as well as monitoring infrastructure, which includes provisions for near-seamless disaster recovery in the event of a network outage.
"G2 and its team of experts has been an exceptional vendor, one that has both fulfilled and anticipated our needs, and elevating this relationship to the partner level will allow us to work in even deeper collaboration," said Jay Wessland, vice president and chief technology officer of the Celtics. "Speed and reliability are of the utmost importance to our business, and they are without peer in these critical areas."
"The Celtics have been a case study in effectively leveraging the power of the cloud to get better information in less time," added Glenn Grant, chief executive of G2. "Now, as their partner, we're looking forward to continuing to help the organization gain competitive advantages, both on and off the court."
The Boston Celtics are currently second in the Atlantic Division of the NBA’s Eastern Conference. They clinched a 100-99 win at home to the Oklahoma Thunder on Tuesday, and travel to face the Portland Trail Blazers on 23rd March.
