phoenixNAP has announced that it will expand its carrier connectivity with Colt to diversify its options for customers.

Its data center location in Phoenix, Arizona, will also improve Colt’s access to its Colt IQ Network.

phoenixNAP’s connectivity hub is also the only AWS Direct Connect location in the region.

The Colt IQ Network enables organisations to set up cloud environments that connect with more than 850 data centers and 27,500 on net buildings.

Ian McClarty, president at phoenixNAP, commented: “Colt complements our current carrier infrastructure and further enables us to ensure fast, reliable, and secure services across the globe, allowing us to keep delivering on our promise of providing customers with resilient and affordable connectivity options across multiple continents.”

Colt, which prides itself on being a provider of on-demand, high bandwidth network and communication solutions, is also recognised as an innovator in the fields of software defined networking and network function virtualisation.

It continually expands its footprint to ensure maximum service availability, resilience, and diversity while enabling local access for its customers.

phoenixNAP, which offers security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation, and specialised infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) technology, is providing Colt with direct access to major national and international gateways.

Following the growing demand for customised carrier options and better global interconnectivity, phoenixNAP continually adds new carrier options and data centre locations to expand its connectivity.

“Since Colt launched in the US in June of last year, we have focused on increasing our presence in this important market,” said Andrew Edison, VP Wholesale at Colt.

“As part of this, we were looking for a state-of-the-art facility with existing global interconnections and reliable services.

“phoenixNAP delivered just that, and we are excited about our future collaboration.”

Telxius also recently sought phoenixNAP's services in May.
