IO, the leading provider of next-generation modular data center technology and services, announced today that Allianz Global Investors of America L.P., a leading asset management company, has deployed IO’s modular data center technology platform, IO.Anywhere. Operating from IO New Jersey, Allianz chose IO.Anywhere for enterprise-class resilience, energy efficiency and the ability to add data center capacity with a flexible, pay-as-you-grow model.
“IO’s modular platform saved us from making a costly upfront commitment to multiple megawatts of power,” said Jeff Wood, Senior Vice President, Information Technology of Allianz. “In addition to significant cost savings, the technical excellence built into IO’s hardware and software platform helps us respond to today’s business demands and new challenges the moment they arise.”
The 3.6 MVA IO.Anywhere system was manufactured at the IO Factory in Phoenix, Ariz. and delivered to Edison, N.J. – in just 90 days. IO.Anywhere comes equipped with a fully integrated power delivery system that includes primary and backup power generation, and power conditioning.
“Allianz leads the financial services industry in the transformation of legacy data center environments to Data Center 2.0,” said George Slessman, CEO of IO. “The IO technology platform provides our customers a sustainable competitive advantage; to thinly provision their data center infrastructure based on their business needs, resulting in significant operating and capital expense savings.”
Combining IO’s operational expertise with its purposefully designed and elegantly engineered hardware and software architecture, IO delivers the world’s most efficient and scalable data center solution. The IO.Anywhere modular platform is managed and optimized by the first secure data center operating system, IO.OS®, which transforms the data center into an enterprise IT appliance to maximize resiliency, efficiency and utilization.
