While summertime usually means a break from the busy pace of work, things at INAP have been anything but slow. As August draws to a close, we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the big news and events from the past few months.
In May, we announced partnerships with DediPath and the world’s largest social casino games company, adding them to our New York metro and Santa Clara, California, data centers, respectively.
Later that month, we announced a new collaboration with Ciena, whom we chose to work with for our multiphase network enhancement initiative. Keep an eye out—we’ll be launching Metro Ethernet services for increased connectivity and performance in six markets: Boston, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Phoenix and the Bay Area.

In June, Jim Keeley joined INAP as our new CFO. That same month, US Dedicated also expanded their footprint with us from Atlanta and Seattle into our newly expanded Dallas data center.
In July, our Montreal data center got a new colocation customer: a leading global provider of information and communication technology. We were also pleased to hear that INAP was certified as a Great Place To Work™ based on employee feedback. You can read what people here think about the company, and if you like what you see, check out our current openings.
At the end of the month, we signed a new lease in Phoenix, Arizona, to add a second Tier 3-design data center, anchored by key tenant Bank of America. Around the same time, we released our second quarter earnings report.
Earlier this month, we announced an exciting partnership with Colt Data Centre Services in its North London facility, where we will be building out a standalone, self-contained Tier 3-design data center space.
We also announced a new agreement with Sovrn, an online advertising technology firm. This is the second expansion to our cloud hosting agreement with the company. Our international footprint, in addition to our route-optimized IP service, was a key deciding factor.
We are looking forward to seeing what the last few months of 2018 will bring, and we hope you will too.
