“phoenixNAP’s experienced sales engineers created a customized solution that met all the customer's infrastructure needs. You can rely on the phoenixNAP team. They are responsive, flexible, and provided a fantastic solution and customer experience.“
The customer’s greatest challenge was maintaining its critical and complex “always-on” compute infrastructure; supporting processes approval, certification, and management to ensure full industry compliance as well as the customer’s performance expectations. Seeking to improve on its complex process, phoenixNAP needed to provide a higher level of expert responsiveness in supporting vital cloud infrastructure- making it efficient, productive, and secure. This was the primary reason Telecom Brokerage Inc. (TBI) felt confident bringing such a high-profile aerospace manufacturer to phoenixNAP. PhoenixNAP's Data Security Cloud (DSC) solution met their infrastructure specifications, server requirements, security, and compliance needs. Confident phoenixNAP possessed the expertise and skillsets necessary to help Ascent Aerospace optimize critical compute operations, it's no wonder TBI chose phoenixNAP. Moreover, phoenixNAP's SOC-audited processes ensured a timely implementation. By providing expert consulting and assistance throughout its implementation, phoenixNAP became TBI's #1 choice.

DSC was the perfect solution that leveraged phoenixNAP’s powerful cloud infrastructure that could also manage backups, meet security demands, and enable monitoring and visibility to all connected systems. It is designed to be "the world's most secure platform", to protect sensitive, missioncritical data and establish an “always-on” cloud infrastructure environment for Ascent’s production, QA, and Dev operations. phoenixNAP’ DSC could dedicate resources to their virtual cloud environment by setting it apart from other workloads, ensuring a fully private cloud computing environment. This way, phoenixNAP enabled 24/7/365 uptime for day-to-day critical operations. In addition to our DSC platform, Ascent Aerospace took advantage of phoenixNAP’s Cloud Back-up with Veeam.
