phoenixNAP, a global IT services provider offering security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation, and specialized Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions, says it is on track for its best year in data center colocation sales to date. The company earned nearly 20 percent more revenue from colocation services in the first three quarters of 2020 versus the same period last year.
In 2020, phoenixNAP welcomed multiple new colocation clients, some of which are globally recognized companies. Due to the increased demand, the company is also opening a new Meet-Me-Room in the facility that will further increase the diversity of carrier options available.
Located at the intersection of two major independent fiber rings in Phoenix, phoenixNAP’s 160,000 square feet data center houses over 40 domestic and international carriers, providing global connectivity and net neutrality. phoenixNAP is also an AWS Direct Connect location, enabling businesses to access AWS public cloud services via a fully dedicated, private network.
Data Center Colocation Space in Phoenix
“The demand for data center space in Phoenix has been steadily growing for the past few years and there are numerous reasons for this,” said Ian McClarty, President at phoenixNAP. “The overall costs of service are comparatively lower than in most nearby markets, while the disaster-readiness is on a much higher level. Compared to the California market, for example, Phoenix offers lower service costs and zero disaster risk, which makes it a preferred choice for servicing U.S. West Coast markets. This year is particularly dynamic with the introduction of work from home policies that forced many organizations to reevaluate their IT infrastructure costs and security.”
“We believe this is one factor that influenced the increase in demand for our colocation services, the other one being our continued effort to improve our offer quality, connectivity, and overall security,” added Mr. McClarty. “Over the past few years, we added multiple new carrier options, expanded our global presence, and diversified our service portfolio to meet the evolving needs of businesses all over the world.”
