IO Data Center Cost Savings
IO’s model of allowing customers to buy only what is needed and improved energy efficiency translates into savings for you.Learn More
Improved data center efficiency that translates into savings for youIO helps you have the data center your way. Buy only what’s needed now, and efficiently scale to meet business demand. With one of the lowest data center power usage effectiveness (PUE) in the industry, IO can help deliver data center cost savings or make that build vs. buy decision a no-brainer.
Scalable EfficiencyWith IO, you can efficiently expand your data center footprint by deploying a new module–often within 120 days. Compare that to a traditional raised-floor environment where deployment time can be up to a year or more.
IO’s modules deliver highly flexible and scalable deployments with short installation times for superior data center efficiency. Pay only for what you need, when you need it and ensure future growth–without over-provisioning or under-utilizing resources and paying a penalty for inefficiency.
Modular EfficiencyIO’s data center modules operate ultra efficiently, providing industry-low PUEs and significant cost savings. How do we know?
We partnered with Arizona’s largest electric utility and the leading authority in energy-related testing, inspection and certification to find out which is more energy efficient: the modular data center or traditional raised-floor environments. Here are some of the results of our year-long study:
|Energy Overhead||204,458 kWh||113,767 kWh||90,691 kWh||44%|
|438,902 kWh||93,211 kWh||90,691 kWh||19%|
In addition, the traditional raised floor environment had a PUE of 1.73, while the modular data center environment had a PUE of 1.41. Lowering PUEs by just .25 directly lowers operating costs by $1.0 million over five years. For example:
|Power Usage||PUE||Price||Cost over 5 years|
High-Density EfficiencyFor many organizations, 5 kW per rack is sufficient. But, with the rise of Big Data and the Internet of Everything, demand for compute capacity will continue to increase and soon 5 kW will not be enough.
With IO, you can take 5 kW today and densify as demand grows. IO’s modules enable high-density deployments that deliver:
- More power in place for better unit economics in per kW pricing
- Consolidated footprint with fewer cabinets, less fit-out, and lower networking costs
