Solution offers IT equipment leases for rapid growth with no heavy investment
PHOENIX, July 16 — Phoenix NAP, a full service data center, premier infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider and primary network access point (NAP), announced today a brand new service offering designed to help businesses quickly scale up for growth without requiring a large capital investment.
The new and unique Hardware-as-a-Service (HaaS) solution provides flexible lease options for servers, RAM, HDDs, Raid cards, racks, PDUs, cable managers, and network switches. Leases can be as short as three months or as long as three years, and there are options for leasing-to-own on many items.
"One of the things we have found within the greater IT market is a continued movement by CIOs and CFOs toward converting spend to operational expenses, rather than making large up-front capital purchases," said Ian McClarty, president of Phoenix NAP. "We believe that cloud is a good example of how this trend is shaping things. With our new Hardware-as-a-Service solution, we are taking this concept to the next level, and offering leasing options that are great for both start-ups, and for enterprises that may need additional servers to accommodate spikes in growth."
Phoenix NAP Hardware-as-a-Service options include warranties on hardware for as long as the lease is in effect, and any malfunctioning equipment is replaced within four hours of verification by Phoenix NAP's onsite technicians. This highly-skilled staff currently deploys more than 500 servers a month under the Secured Servers product line for customers without contracts, and is adept at maintaining performance levels of IT equipment.
"It was very important that we offered peace-of-mind with our HaaS solutions and not overcomplicate things by requiring separate warranties for the gear," added Jordan Jacobs, director of corporate strategy for Phoenix NAP. "By taking care of the warranty, we are able to provide a solution that is ready right out of the box."
The new Hardware-as-a-Service options also feature non-negotiable pricing, enabling interested users to build their own quote.
Phoenix NAP is a PCI DSS Validated Service Provider and a SOC Type 2 audited facility.
