The data center is also a home to the only AWS Direct Connect edge location in the state of Arizona and the surrounding region, providing a unique opportunity for organizations to establish private connectivity to AWS cloud services. David Ackerman, Alluvion Manager at Alluvion Communications, noted that this is one of the reasons why the company choose phoenixNAP.
“phoenixNAP’s Phoenix data center was an obvious choice for our new strategic carrier presence as it hosts the only AWS Direct Connect in Arizona and is one of the best-equipped and most reliable facilities in this part of the US. We are very excited about this collaboration with phoenixNAP and the new opportunities that will arise from our expansion to their Meet-Me-Room.”
