There’s a new sheriff in town, and its name is SingleHop. That’s right; we are excited to announce the opening of our new data center in Phoenix, AZ. And since every sheriff needs a deputy, we have partnered with IO, our data facility management company and the leading provider of next-generation modular data center technology and services. Not since the days of Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral has the West seen news worthy of this level of excitement.

The new facility will act as a third location for all of our cloud hosting products, and the modular data center technology will provide us with an additional 2,500 server capacity.  Another added benefit of this modular data center is that it allows for the deployment of data center capacity in a fraction of the time that you’d get with traditional data centers.  As always, LEAP3, our industry-leading infrastructure management platform will continue to provide customers with automation to increase user control throughout the entire modular data center.

So as a customer what does this mean? It means you now have a choice in location while still enjoying the benefits of control and the ease automation that we’ve provided for you. Our new facility will allow you (especially if you’re on the west coast) to connect to our services with just 40ms of latency. To make matters even better, the facility is completely IPv6 compatible with a fully redundant private network.

Some additional features of our new Phoenix data center are:

  • SSAE 16 Type 2 Certification
  • Uptime Institute Tier III Certification for Design Documents
  • 10Gbps connectivity to server cabinets
  • Public & Private network
  • Connectivity to Chicago data centers

Here at SingleHop we’re very excited about our westward expansion and working with IO. To getter better glimpse about what goes into IO’s modular data centers watch the video below. Enjoy!
