Phoenix, AZ, June 22, 2011 – Phoenix NAP®, a next-generation datacenter and network access point, announced today that Virtuon, Inc., a cloud services provider, has selected the Phoenix NAP facility for its hosting and IT infrastructure needs. In making the decision to move from a previous data center location, Virtuon cited the network performance Phoenix NAP provides as a significant motivating factor.
"Organizations are rolling out tablet devices as a productivity tool and our users require reliable low-latency connectivity to our vPresence service," said Forrest Blair, CEO of Virtuon. "In addition, our international hubs need a reliable quality-of-service to our master hub here in Phoenix and Phoenix NAP was our first choice."
Virtuon also noted the responsive and professional customer service and support of Phoenix NAP, and its attention to data security standards such as SAS 70, PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), and HIPAA, as important aspects that influenced the decision to move into the datacenter.
"Having a top cloud services provider like Virtuon in our datacenter is somewhat indicative of how the market is moving more toward virtualized computing solutions. What can sometimes be overlooked is even clouds need a quality physical infrastructure, and we are thrilled to provide that for Virtuon and its customer base," states Ian McClarty, president of Phoenix NAP.
Phoenix NAP is a SAS 70 Type II certified datacenter and a PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) Validated Services provider. For more information, please visit www.phoenixnap.com.
