Phoenix NAP Selects Latisys to Support Secured Cloud Expansion

Latisys Ashburn Data Center to Provide East Coast Point of Presence

ENGLEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - May 24, 2012) - Latisys, Inc., a leading national provider of outsourced IT solutions delivered on a high density, high security platform -- from colocation and cloud -- today announced an IT infrastructure services agreement with Phoenix NAP, a full service data center, premier infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider and primary network access point (NAP) for the Phoenix, AZ, metro region.

Under terms of the multiyear agreement, Latisys is providing Phoenix NAP with data center footprint, power, bandwidth and disaster recovery from Latisys' high density SOC 2 and SOC 3 audited data center in Ashburn, Virginia. Initially, Phoenix NAP will be offering its public cloud solution, Secured Cloud, and is considering offering its Secured Servers product line from Ashburn as well.

"Latisys is emerging as a national provider of premium IT infrastructure services," said Ian McClarty, President of Phoenix NAP. "Latisys' high density Ashburn data center facilitates delivery of the Phoenix NAP Secured Cloud to our growing and geographically disperse customer base, and provides critical disaster recovery services as well. As a trusted business partner, Latisys provides the flexibility, attentiveness and carrier diversity, which closely reflect Phoenix NAP's corporate values."

"Phoenix NAP is executing a very deliberate growth strategy -- expanding both its services and geographic footprint," said Pete Stevenson, Chief Executive Officer, Latisys. "We are pleased that Phoenix NAP has chosen Latisys' east coast platform and are committed to providing the density, flexibility and expertise to support that growth -- today and tomorrow."

Latisys data center platform is now operated under SOC 2 Type 2 and SOC 3 audited controls. This replaces the SAS 70 guidebook and reaffirms Latisys' commitment to meet the highest standards for availability and security, while making sure all of the appropriate controls and safeguards are firmly in place across its IaaS platform.

Latisys recently announced that it is adding 72,000 square feet of highly secure, high density, service provider grade IT infrastructure space along with significant power upgrades. Latisys' total data center platform now exceeds 343,000 square feet across seven data centers in four major markets.
