Colocation provider Phoenix NAP announced on Monday it has added firewall and storage capabilities to its Secured Servers offering.
By including firewall and storage capabilities with cloud servers, web hosting companies are able to provide customers a more comprehensive server solution that will help attract new business.
“We are thrilled to offer our clients with the ability to utilize firewall and storage options,” said Jordan Jacobs, director of corporate strategy for Phoenix NAP. “Protecting client’s servers as well as providing improved storage space has been one of our top priorities while continuing to offer highly competitive pricing.”
Clients will now be provided with Phoenix NAP Secured Servers storage solution that includes up to 24TB of maximum raw storage.
The solution also provides the ability to store large data archives for on-demand access and deliver active storage with 15,000 RPM enterprise disks at competitive pricing.
Additionally, Phoenix NAP Secured Servers offers protection on single servers or a network of servers through its firewall solution that is built on Dell SonicWALL hardware firewalls.
The firewall is provisioned on-demand and fully managed through the Dell portal, enabling customers to configure it to their exact needs.
With the added storage capablitiles to Secured Servers, Phoenix NAP clients can now scale accordingly to their growth while keeping storage costs down.
Late last year, Phoenix NAP opened its second North American node for its cloud hosting services located at a Latisys data center in Ashburn, Virginia, as well as launched the Phoenix NAP European node at Interxion‘s Amsterdam data center.
