Cox Business announced a strategic partnership with ViaWest covering colocation and cloud services  in Las Vegas, Phoenix and Southern California markets.

Cox Business will provide secure fiber network connectivity matched with ViaWest's colocation and cloud infrastructure solutions.

"Our Cox Business customers have a growing need for scalable IT infrastructure solutions that enable them to access mission critical data anytime and anywhere," said Mark Bowser, executive vice president and chief financial officer, Cox Communications.  "By partnering with ViaWest, we have an enhanced product offering that now includes a full suite of secure cloud and colocation solutions to meet the infrastructure needs of our customers."
