Acquisition by PhoenixNAP Finalized

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – A deal has been finalized, officially making web host Secured Servers a part of colocation provider Phoenix NAP.

Despite the deal being announced just Monday, the companies initially agreed to join up in August of last year. Services provided for by Secured Servers include cloud, backup and storage, dedicated servers and more.

“This addition to Phoenix NAP falls right in line with our full service data center philosophy. We understand there are differing needs within the IT infrastructure space, and this acquisition puts us in a position to help address the variety of market demands,” stated Phoenix NAP president Ian McCarty when discussing the matter in a press release.

Meanwhile, the companies have already been working together to form new solutions. PhoenixNAP has indicated that new “server hardware options” are set to be unveiled within the near future.

Operating a 160 square foot data center in Phoenix, Arizona, Phoenix NAP’s colocation services provide for cloud and disaster recovery. Specific features of the company’s cloud include firewalls and load balancing.

Like Phoenix NAP, Secured Servers is also based in Arizona.

In December, Phoenix NAP announced plans to expand overseas with networks known as nodes. For more information on the colocation provider’s acquisition of Secured Servers, view a press release by the company here (
