Phoenix NAP Interactive Brings Facility Tours to You

Jan 21, 2010, 17:49 ET from Phoenix NAP, LLC

PHOENIX, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Phoenix NAP®, a next generation datacenter and network access point, announced today a new interactive tool designed to showcase the layout, design, and operational features of its facility – Phoenix NAP Interactive.  

Accessible through a Web interface, the interactive tour takes users through a rich 3D representation of the datacenter, complete with fiber trenches, mechanical and electrical distribution equipment, security systems, and room layouts. To see a short preview, visit our YouTube channel, Facebook page, or blog.  

"One of the things we wanted to do was really showcase our designs and functional layout to any potential clients or interested individuals, while being mindful of travel costs. Not everyone can jump on a plane to Arizona for an initial tour, and with Phoenix NAP Interactive, they don't have to," said Jordan Jacobs, director of operations for Phoenix NAP.

After initiating the tour, visitors can select the level of interactivity they want to experience. A self-guided mode moves users through the facility, an exploration mode lets users control and move an avatar throughout the datacenter, and a meeting mode allows for Phoenix NAP representatives to join visitors in the 3D application to answer questions and serve as a tour guide.

"The flexibility of our tour enables users to experience it how they want. Whether it's a CIO or senior executive interested in a quick self-guided tour, or a network technician that really wants to explore the facility in-depth and maybe even ask the staff a question or two, we can accommodate," said Jacobs. "It really is their tour."

To fully experience Phoenix NAP Interactive, visit Phoenix NAP Interactive was co-developed by GSD Software and Phoenix NAP.
