phoenixNAP, a global IT services provider offering security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation and specialised Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions, has announced the launch of its Bare Metal Cloud (BMC) Edge location in Austin, Texas. Deployed at an American Tower Edge Data Center, this location provides low-latency access to Bare Metal Cloud out of the US south-west locations.
As a global communications infrastructure provider, American Tower owns and operates an extensive portfolio of communications sites and data centres, which provide the critical infrastructure for numerous wireless and emerging applications. With multiple Edge Data Centers deployed and in development, a well-located network of larger data centre facilities throughout the US and a portfolio of approximately 43,000 US tower sites, American Tower is positioned to leverage 5G to help businesses adopt high-bandwidth, low-latency applications and a wide variety of next-generation, emerging technologies.
Bare Metal Cloud deployment in the American Tower Edge Data Center in Austin uses an innovative architecture to deliver advanced network speeds. Through multiple virtual cross-connects to a Megaport Cloud Router, the traffic is routed from the Edge to phoenixNAP’s other locations in the US, accelerating transfer speeds and connectivity. As such, Bare Metal Cloud Edge instances are particularly convenient for next-generation workloads using 5G transports or services built on top of 5G.Click below to share this article
