(Gawkwire.com) – Phoenix NAP®, a next generation datacenter and network access point, announced today plans for physical expansion and a new cloud infrastructure offering in 2011. The growth and new services follow a successful 2010, in which the datacenter was built and opened.
“When we initially opened, we were able to already have a nice customer footprint in place, so we knew we were meeting market needs. Additionally, we were able to bring in the carriers that we wanted early on in the process, which definitely helped spur customer interest,” said Ian McClarty, president of Phoenix NAP.
McClarty adds bringing in more connectivity options continues to be a focus for the datacenter in 2011, specifically from Asian and European carriers which may not have a strong presence in the U.S. This strategy is just one example of how Phoenix NAP is working to ensure its clients’ future needs are met, and complements the datacenter’s other 2011 growth plans.
“The modular nature of our facility will enable us to quickly expand the initial 45,000 square feet of datacenter floor to meet customer demand throughout 2011. We will also be offering cloud infrastructure services and components of cloud, such as shared storage,” said McClarty.
Additional details on the cloud offerings will be announced prior to their release. Phoenix NAP will also be pursuing its SAS 70 Type II certification and HIPAA certification in 2011, along with working to retain its PCI Validated Services Provider status.
