SOMERSET, N.J. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SHI International Corp. is going back to the future with its imaginative New York City Briefing Center, which was unveiled today at 1 Penn Plaza. The center is a futuristic office straight out of the pages of science fiction and delivers an immersive, interactive experience to give visitors a comprehensive view of SHI’s innovative cloud services, technologies, and capabilities.
The Briefing Center features bright white walls reminiscent of “2001: A Space Odyssey”; automatic glass doors that can transition from clear to opaque and even display images; and 3-D projectors that will put the world of traditional presentations to shame. A customizable 3-D tour of SHI’s cloud architecture creates an immersive experience from the moment visitors step through the door. It offers clients a look inside SHI’s next-generation data center and cloud solutions to help them find the best fit for their organization’s cloud computing needs.
“Our new Briefing Center augments the traditional experience of a briefing room with an immersive, futuristic environment that sets the stage for SHI’s innovations,” said Henry Fastert, Chief Technologist at SHI. “This new environment will showcase SHI’s enterprise architecture and the potential of SHI’s cloud solutions to lead companies of all sizes into the future, including our Fortune 500 customers.

The Briefing Center also features a live video stream to SHI Cloud Data Centers and an on-site SHI vCore (service core), allowing visitors to see what’s happening behind the scenes of their cloud solutions. And a visit to the Briefing Center wouldn’t be complete without a 1950s sci-fi journey back into the future, led by SHI’s cloud computing mascot, HA-NA.
