Phoenix NAP, a next generation data center and network access point, and Datalink, a provider of data center infrastructure and services, have announced a strategic partnership to meet the growing market needs for disaster recovery and business continuity services.

“Today’s business environment has caused companies to examine the processes they have in place for mitigating risks and shortening their recovery time objectives (RTOs) following a disruption. While Phoenix NAP is designed to meet the physical requirements of a disaster recovery location, effective and robust disaster recovery and business continuity solutions necessitate other areas of expertise, and we are thrilled to have an industry leader like Datalink as a strategic partner to offer them,” said Ian McClarty, president of Phoenix NAP.

Datalink offers a wide range of comprehensive solutions to help ensure uninterrupted operation for businesses following system failures, inadvertent human errors, or natural catastrophes. Combined with the redundant, secure, and concurrently maintainable designs of the Phoenix NAP facility, the Datalink solutions can provide businesses with an effective disaster recovery or business continuity strategy.

“Combining Datalink data center solutions and services with Phoenix NAP is a win-win partnership for our customers who require robust disaster recovery/business continuity (DR/BC) solutions. We have years of experience developing and implementing DR/BC solutions in mid and large-size enterprises. This partnership announcement further expands our ability to provide customers access to and expertise to leverage the best available solutions,” said Datalink’s Shawn O’Grady, executive vice president of strategy and field operations.

Disaster recovery and business continuity services at Phoenix NAP are available through Datalink, and Datalink’s associated hardware and software partners. Those attending HostingCon in Austin, TX, July 19 – 21, can visit the Phoenix NAP booth to speak with Datalink and Phoenix NAP staff, and learn more about the DR/BC solutions the companies are offering through this partnership.
