Phoenix, Ariz – December 12, 2016 – IO, a leading global provider of Data Center Services, today announced Abacus Data Systems, Inc. (Abacus) has selected IO’s data center infrastructure to support its Abacus Private Cloud customers. Abacus is using IO colocation hosting services in Phoenix and London to deliver Virtual Desktop as a Service solutions in a reliable, high availability environment.
Abacus, the leading fully managed technology solutions provider, whose next generation, turnkey product portfolio is distinguished under the corporate brand Abacus Next®, chose IO because it provides highly secure, energy efficient modular data center services staffed “24xForever” with customer service, data center operations, and security personnel. IO provides Abacus the flexibility to add capacity in a pay-as-you-grow model, which makes it easy for Abacus to deliver on-demand cloud services to its SMB customers.
“IO provides us with a next-generation, robust data center infrastructure environment that spans a global footprint,” said Jerome Fodor, CTO, Abacus. “This agreement marks our fourth and fifth data centers, which is a testament to the strong demand that we are experiencing for our cloud services. IO holds the same values and commitment that we do in helping customers maintain data integrity and business continuity.”
The modular data centers at IO.Phoenix and IO.London are exceptionally energy efficient and are capable of providing power cost savings of between 20 to 30 percent as compared to traditional raised floor colocation. The data centers employ multiple layers of physical security to protect the mission-critical infrastructure in the facility. IO does not charge customers to cross-connect to telecommunications carriers, which helps reduce their monthly connectivity charges.
