After acquiring land adjacent to its flagship data center in Phoenix, Arizona, global Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider phoenixNAP has announced its plans to expand their North American footprint with a new data center campus at this location. The new building, which will be part of phoenixNAP’s existing data center campus in Phoenix, will have a capacity of half a million square feet once completed.
The Phoenix metro region continues to be in demand for corporate and mid-market businesses, says phoenixNAP, as well as a “rising” number of investment-backed startups. This area would be one of the fastest-growing U.S. commerce centers for worldwide businesses. As a provider of cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation services, and bare metal solutions, phoenixNAP will build its new, high-density enabled data center campus to serve their growing portfolio of enterprise partners and customers, including hosting, data center and realty anchors.
The new high-density facility will be an extension of phoenixNAP’s current capacity to offer a strategic network Point-of-Presence for enterprises that need to scale out rapidly. The facility will also serve as a cloud on-ramp, providing high-speed dedicated network access to hyperscale cloud services via AWS Direct Connect and Google Cloud Interconnect. phoenixNAP offers global connectivity of up to 2.35 Tbps and multiple 100 Gbps transit connections to its 16 other data center locations worldwide.
