IO CEO George Slessman to Speak at the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Management Summit

Modular Data Center Design, Dominant Trend to Make Lasting Impact on Data Center IndustryIO, the leading provider of digital energy technology, today announced that George Slessman, CEO of IO, will speak at the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Management Summit. Mr. Slessman will discuss the industrialization of the manufactured, modular data center and its lasting impact on the data center industry. This year’s conference focusing on virtualization, cloud computing and other emerging technologies will be held June 13-15 at The Peabody Orlando in Orlando, Florida.

“These [modular] solutions can provide much-needed capacity quickly and, in some cases, be the cornerstone for a long-term data center strategy,” reports David Cappuccio, Managing Vice President of Gartner. “When comparing modular designs that are prebuilt at a factory versus a purpose-built design constructed using traditional methods, capital costs savings of 20% to 30% are not unusual.”*

The IO.Anywhere® modular data center platform is engineered from manufactured components and controlled with the IO.OS® for seamless integration into the larger enterprise IT stack. By utilizing a standards-based architecture and an enterprise software platform, IO.Anywhere® harnesses economies of scope and scale to provide superior performance and exceptional value.

Mr. Slessman is scheduled to speak on Tuesday, June 14th at 2:30 p.m. EDT. For more information at the conference, visit IO at booth #3.
