Host Virtual, a company specializing in global cluster, cloud computing, and anycast solutions, has opened its 15th data center PoP in North America – at the PhoenixNAP data center in Phoenix, Arizona.
The new data center expansion into Phoenix, Arizona will extend Host Virtual’s anycast edge network in the southwest United States and enable it to provide colocation, VPS hosting, and dedicated MaaS solutions. The newest Host Virtual location brings its total anycast cloud-enabled network facilities to 26 globally and will help the company increase peering.
“Phoenix is a key strategic location for us,” said Brandon Tedder, Host Virtual’s Director of Business Development. “It not only provides an opportunity for us to increase peering as the 6th largest network operator according to adjacent peers, but it also helps us bring our customers’ anycast edge services even closer to their U.S. user base.”
Phoenix NAP would also provide increased opportunity for Host Virtual to leverage peering relationships with Level 3, Cogent, Verizon, and other Tier 1 carriers.
“Host Virtual continues to demonstrate an admirable understanding of market demands for cloud technologies,” said William Bell, PhoenixNAP’s VP of Products. “Combined with their technical expertise, this understanding has helped the company position itself as an industry leader and further their vision for providing cutting-edge solutions to modern businesses. PhoenixNAP is excited to be a part of these efforts and empower our provider ecosystem with solutions they need to achieve their goals.”
