Arizona’s government offers significant incentives for the development of quality jobs, research and development, and manufacturing. One of the major government programs factoring in the development of local businesses is Arizona’s Computer Data Center Program (CDCP).
This statewide regulation enables innovative businesses to access IT equipment and services at competitive prices. By exempting data center providers and operators from certain equipment taxes, it helps lower the cost of IT services. These incentives have contributed to the great development of the data center market in Phoenix. Industry analysts suggest that Phoenix is now the second most active city in the U.S. by megawatts (MW) absorption. It registered a record 41.6 megawatts (MW) of net absorption in 2019, which is more than 580 percent up compared to 2017. The seven primary U.S. markets saw a record 303 MW of net absorption in 2018, up more than 16 percent from 2017.
This enablement of tech innovation is one of the aspects recommending the city and phoenixNAP, as one of its major data centers, to companies of different sizes.
