DOD Executive Bob Butler Heads Government Strategies for IO

IO, the leading provider of next-generation modular data center technology and services, announced today announced today the appointment of Bob Butler as Vice President of Government Strategies.

In welcoming Mr. Butler’s appointment, Anthony J. D’Ambrosi, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of IO stated, “The need for consolidation has government organizations viewing data centers as hardware and software, just like other IT purchases. This approach allows government IT to start small, only pay for what they use and grow as required. With more than three decades experience in helping government use IT strategically, Bob Butler is a great addition as IO works to help generate information infrastructure savings and efficiencies that could not previously be achieved.”

“At a time when data creation is growing exponentially and our nation is faced with severe economic challenges, IO delivers the most advanced, purpose-built data center solutions for federal, state and local governments,” said Mr. Butler. “IO’s commitment to improving data center capacity, efficiency and resiliency while reducing cost through its modular hardware and software platform is exactly what our nation needs right now.”

Mr. Butler brings to IO over 32 years of multinational experience spanning Defense, Intelligence, National Security and Information Technology positions. He most recently served two years as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Cyber Policy, where he was responsible to the Secretary of Defense and senior Defense leaders for recommending and implementing policy strategies to improve the Defense Department’s cyber position. Throughout his career, Mr. Butler adopted best business practices and technology enhancements to significantly increase intelligence production and proficiency while reducing costs.
