Host Virtual, a leader in global cluster, cloud computing, and anycast solutions, has opened its 15th data center POP in North America at the PhoenixNAP data center in Phoenix, AZ.Host Virtual announces a new data center expansion into Phoenix, Arizona which will extend its anycast edge network in the southwest United States and enable it to provide colocation, VPS, and dedicated MaaS solutions. The newest Host Virtual location brings its total anycast cloud-enabled network facilities to 26 globally and will help the company increase peering.

According to its Data Center Outlook for Phoenix 2016 report, Jones Lang LaSalle stated that the Phoenix market continues to expand as a result of demand from West Coast companies who need low latency service to California while decreasing power and tax costs in Arizona. Host Virtual’s new Phoenix PoP provides sub 10-millisecond latency to the growing SaaS and content providers deploying in the Phoenix market from Southern California.

“Phoenix is a key strategic location for us. It not only provides an opportunity for us to increase peering as the 6th largest network operator according to adjacent peers, but it also helps us bring our customers’ anycast edge services even closer to their U.S. user base”, stated Brandon Tedder, Host Virtual’s Director of Business Development.

Host Virtual’s location at Phoenix NAP will extend the anycast network into the Southwest of the US between Dallas and Los Angeles, enabling less than 10ms latency between most end users in the region. The move to expand into Phoenix was driven by an increase in customer demand for more US coverage and the option for lower colocation costs. Phoenix NAP also provides increased opportunity for Host Virtual to leverage peering relationships with Level 3, Cogent, Verizon, and other Tier 1 carriers.

When asked about the expansion, PhoenixNAP’s VP of Products William Bell noted, “Host Virtual continues to demonstrate an admirable understanding of market demands for cloud technologies. Combined with their technical expertise, this understanding has helped the company position itself as an industry leader and further their vision for providing cutting-edge solutions to modern businesses. PhoenixNAP is excited to be a part of these efforts and empower our provider ecosystem with solutions they need to achieve their goals.”
