EdgeConneX®, the pioneer in global Hyperlocal to Hyperscale Data Center Solutions, announces the deployment of AWS Direct Connect with both 10Gbps and 100Gbps capability at the Phoenix Edge Data Center® (PHX01). EdgeConneX is a member of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN), and AWS Direct Connect is already available in the Portland Edge Data Center® Campus (POR01 and POR02). AWS Direct Connect allows customers to establish direct edge cloud on-ramps, which can reduce costs, improve operations, and deliver a superior and consistent network experience for their data-intensive workloads.
The greater Phoenix area has developed into a burgeoning tech and business ecosystem in the Southwest region, in part due to local business incentives, tax exemptions, and low latency routes to larger metros. By layering on the added flexibility of AWS Direct Connect in the EdgeConneX Phoenix data center, companies can advance their digital transformation strategies and application evolution by linking their internal network via direct point-to-point connections. This creates a secure, private cloud connection with access to both 10Gbps and 100Gbps AWS Direct Connect ports.
Phillip Marangella, Chief Marketing and Product Officer at EdgeConneX:
"EdgeConneX customers are increasingly leveraging hybrid architecture solutions to address high bandwidth workloads, such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR). EdgeConneX is working with AWS to offer customers in Phoenix expanded workload transport options and improved scalability and reliability."
Emad Benjamin, General Manager of AWS Direct Connect at AWS:
"Emerging tech applications and cloud-based IT architectures require high availability and lower latency connectivity. With AWS Direct Connect in the EdgeConneX Phoenix data center, customers can create virtual interfaces directly to AWS and access services such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), allowing for increased security and consistent network experiences."
Michael Reid, CEO for Megaport
"Our customers with mission-critical applications require secure, on-premises infrastructure to meet optimal application performance. By leveraging AWS Direct Connect at the EdgeConneX Phoenix data center, our customers can benefit from low-latency connections to the cloud, essential to supporting the modern applications that power their businesses."
The EdgeConneX Phoenix Data Center is engineered for customers requiring the lowest latency and is marked by Tier III design, and just 10 miles from downtown Phoenix. In addition, EdgeConneX is building a 100MW data center campus in nearby Mesa, Arizona.
Backed by EQT Infrastructure, part of the global investment organization EQT, EdgeConneX provides a full range of sustainable data center solutions worldwide.

PingCAP announced the introduction of TiDB Serverless, its newest offering of TiDB, the company’s open-source, distributed SQL database. As a fully-managed, autonomous database-as-a-service (DBaaS), TiDB Serverless delivers reliable scalability for developers who want to free themselves from manual database tasks, such as sharding. TiDB Serverless offers key advancements to PingCAP’s leading database architecture and provides developers with time-saving features, including
Auto Elasticity - TiDB Serverless automatically scales hundreds of nodes up and down to meet critical workloads in real-time. It enables separate scaling for storage and compute, allowing autonomous scalability of nodes without manual sharding—so development teams can focus on what’s next. TiDB Serveless maintains the ACID properties of data transactions.
Fully-Managed Operations - With built-in auto failover and self-healing to ensure continuous operations, multiple availability zones (Zs) are used to duplicate data, increasing overall resilience and prevention of failures. TiDB Serverless performs daily data backups, increasing safety measures and facilitating data recovery if necessary. TiDB Serverless also ensures auto-failover, minimizing downtime and guaranteeing business continuity.
Usage-Based Pricing - Lower overall infrastructure costs by only paying for the data processing and storage you use. TiDB Serverless eliminates the need for manual intervention by abstracting the underlying infrastructure and automatically adjusts to changing workloads. TiDB Serverless guarantees that developers only pay for the resources they actually need.
AI-Assisted Enhancements - New features such as Chat2Query, powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT3, allow developers to generate SQL queries on the fly, increasing overall developer productivity. The service provides real-time insights into dynamic datasets, allowing developers to analyze and explore more data at a faster rate. The service ensures developers make smarter business decisions by providing timely and relevant information.
"Enter a new era of seamless scalability with our revolutionary TiDB Serverless," stated Max Liu, CEO of PingCAP. "This innovative product represents a significant milestone for PingCAP, offering developers exceptional flexibility and scalability. TiDB Serverless will drive growth and empower organizations to achieve significant improvements in database management. We are excited for developers to explore its endless opportunities while benefiting from unmatched efficiency."
For the first 5 clusters in an organization, TiDB Serverless will provide free usage up to 5GB of row storage, 5GB of column storage, and 50 million Request Units (RUs). Please review TiDB Serverless Pricing Details for an in-depth pricing breakdown.
