Cyrus One offers datacenter and connectivity services with good flexibility when it comes to custom deployments.
Our take. They offer excellent capabilities and through their MegaPort connection can give you access to all the major cloud players should you want to employ a Multi-Cloud setup. They also offer 2N redundancy on power which isn't the norm in our N +1 world.
Digital Realty Trust
Digital Realty operates mission critical facilities globally. Their acquisition of Telx expanded their already large footprint. In Miami, they have 3 facilities which gives you plenty of choice.
Our take. You get much value for your IT spend with DRT. They offer flexibility in their power density which allows firms to save some money if they don't need high density computing environments. They feature excellent interconnection options and they have extremely robust power, network and support.
ViaWest has recently merged with Peak10 after acquiring iNetU. They offer colocation, HIPAA compliant cloud and a full suite of managed services.
Our Take: The ViaWest product suite is broad but with solid execution due to some strategic acquisitions. ViaWest has long held excellent datacenter properties in top markets. Peak10 offered robust facilities in smaller US markets while iNetU offered mission critical public and private cloud services with a specialization around HIPAA compliance.

InterNap - Phoenix
Internap offers colocation with amazing inter-carrier connectivity and OpenStack based Cloud Computing.
Our take. Internap has long been known for their interconnections between multiple networks and colocation. While they are not very well known as a cloud provider, they do offer an interesting OpenStack and Bare Metal service that are quite robust.
INAP1 - 2121 S Price Rd, Chandler, AZ 85286
PhoenixNap offers a robust colocation offering along with hardware leasing, managed network services and cloud backup / DR services that include Veeam. In our work with PhoenixNap we've found them highly responsive and competitive in their pricing.
Our Take. A very strong data center provider with good access to other networks. Their managed DR and continuity offerings through Veeam are intriguing and should be examined for those seeking a DR solution.
PN - 3402 E University Dr, Phoenix, AZ 85034
QTS is known for their mission critical and large facilities. They offer colocation and a full suite of managed services that include cloud, disaster recover and traditional managed hosting services.
Our Take: We've worked with QTS in the past and the clients we've helped choose QTS don't regret it. Having the full suite of services also means that you can get out of the self managing business and have someone else completely take over their environment. Their past acquisition of Carpathia hosting gave them even more management capabilities than before.
