5 Apr 2019 by Mike Allen

phoenixNAP, a prominent IT services provider offering security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation, and specialized Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions, is continuing its global expansion. In its latest move, the service provider has added three new locations to its data center network. According to the company, the additional data centers in the U.S., Europe, and Australia will further improve its ability to deliver resilient, high-performance services across the globe while reducing latency and transit costs.

“The organizations we work with continually grow, requiring greater geographical diversity with local access points,” said Ian McClarty, President of phoenixNAP. “Following their needs and business development goals, we have recently added three new global locations and we will continue to add more in months to come. The data centers in Poland, Spain, and Australia will support the local deployment needs of our customers and provide them with better connectivity, redundancy, network performance, and carrier choice.”

Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, phoenixNAP has now more than ten locations to its credits.  Its flagship data center in Phoenix, Arizona harbors numerous Tier 1 carriers. The data center has also established connectivity into AWS Direct Connect, making phoenixNAP the first Amazon Web Services (AWS) edge location in the state. It enables the data center to provide direct access to AWS cloud services with low latency and high bandwidth.

With a robust infrastructure, the company is aiming for worldwide expansion. It has significantly strengthened its presence in Europe and Australia. Over the past few months, the company has added nodes in Warsaw, Poland; Madrid, Spain; and Sydney, Australia.

“Our recent expansion brings us closer to our vision of offering truly global data center services. Understanding that today’s organizations increasingly require geographically distributed data center services, we are committed to providing them with adequate deployment options. Whether it is colocation, hybrid cloud, managed data center, or dedicated server, we have the network coverage to provide them with global reach,” said Danny Fuentes, Director of Information Systems, Network Operations, at phoenixNAP.

In another development, phoenixNAP announced its collaboration with Panzura, a global leader in enterprise multi-cloud file and data services. As one of the first providers to offer servers based on 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors, phoenixNAP will deliver a joint solution with Vizion.ai, Panzura’s new multi-cloud data services platform. The collaboration promises a high-performance solution for multi-cloud management.
