Phoenix NAP, which provides colocation and infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), announced several customer wins this week.
Blue Box Systems, an Arizona based systems engineering and integration company, has selected Phoenix NAP for its IT infrastructure. In making its decision to move from a previous data center, Blue Box Systems cited Phoenix NAP’s facility and selection of carriers as significant factors. Blue Box Systems will offer a range of managed services out of Phoenix NAP, enabling its clients to take advantage of emerging trends such as private clouds and enterprise open source software.
"We're excited to help PhoenixNAP customers programmatically manage their infrastructures and navigate ‘cloud’ computing trends," said Kevin Bowling, Blue Box Systems founder. "We provide a full range of services, ranging from initial architecture to zero hour disaster recovery. We can assist in migrating customers to PhoenixNAP, including those with zero downtime requirements."
Phoenix NAP also announced that IT consulting services firm Unicon is expanding its presence inside the full service facility. The firm cited an increased demand from its client base as a motivating factor in its decision to expand. Unicon offers custom hosted technology solutions for higher education out of Phoenix NAP, providing its clients with educational software.
“Our partnership with Phoenix NAP affords us the opportunity to guarantee higher service levels, and remain competitive with public cloud infrastructure-only price points,” said Chris Franz, President of Unicon.
"We are thrilled with Unicon’s decision to expand within our data center," said Ian McClarty, Phoenix NAP president. "Having been in Phoenix NAP for only six months and already expanding says a lot in itself and we are pleased that we can work together to support Unicon and its growing needs. We are definitely looking forward to expanding our relationship even more as time goes on."
