Phoenix NAP, the data-center services provider, has former a new partnership with master agent Communication Management Services (CMS). The announcement comes just a month after Phoenix NAP rolled out its channel program.
“When we established the Phoenix NAP channel division, it was our goal to work alongside the top agents across the country and Mike Saxby, president of CMS, is one of the most experienced leaders in the channel community today," said David Brimley, managing VP of sales for Phoenix NAP. Already collaborating on a multitude of opportunities for CMS’ agents, we look forward to further growing and expanding our relationship with Mike and all of CMS."
CMS says it brings hundreds of active agents to Phoenix NAP that are focused on mobility, cloud, data, voice, Internet and other IT product-focused solutions for its clients.
“Having worked with Phoenix NAP for years, I have been able to witness, firsthand, its product portfolio expand into its cloud solutions environment and we are thrilled with our newfound relationship and the opportunities it will bring to both of us," said Mike Saxby, president of CMS. “We are already seeing a very strong demand for the products Phoenix NAP offers and its support for channel opportunities has been exceptional."
CMS, which has a national and global client base, is now able to offer colocation and cloud solutions from any of Phoenix NAP’s three data centers in Phoenix; Ashburn, Va.; and Amsterdam.
Phoenix NAP is a full-service data center and primary network access point (NAP) offering cloud services, dedicated server hosting, colocation, and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions.
