IO Data Centers (“IO”), the leading provider of enterprise colocation and data center solutions, today announced the launch of IO.Anywhere™ – the next-generation data center platform.
- IO.Anywhere™ is a fully-integrated data center platform that provides enterprises, governments and service providers with unprecedented flexibility, reliability and energy-efficiency.
- IO.Anywhere™ includes 100% of the critical infrastructure required for an always-on data center. The platform is managed by IO’s Operations team and includes primary and backup power generation, power conditioning, cooling and network connectivity. At the foundation of the IO.Anywhere™ platform is the IO.OS™ – a fully-integrated data center monitoring, alarming, remote control and management operating system.
- IO.Anywhere™ is neither a re-purposed shipping container nor real estate. It is an enterprise-grade data center solution managed to a 100% uptime Service Level Agreement by IO’s industry-leading Operations team.
In making the announcement, George Slessman, CEO of IO, said that “It is no longer necessary for customers to buy power, cooling, and network connectivity ahead of known requirements or in a location that is not ideal. IO.Anywhere™ gives enterprise customers the ability to deploy operational data center capacity wherever and whenever they need it, in or out of a building, on or off the utility grid. Our enterprise customers can now acquire data center capacity the same way they do processing, storage and network – when they need it.”
The patent-pending IO.Anywhere™ data center platform is built on a architecture that can scale to tens of megawatts of uninterruptible power and thousands of cabinets in a single platform deployment. The design provides compartmentalization, continuous cooling, concurrent maintainability and rapid scalability. The platform’s modules can be configured, delivered and operational in a matter of weeks due to IO’s direct control over design, manufacturing, installation and operations. This results in faster time-to-market and lower costs.
This latest innovation from the IO Engineering and Product Development team is based on years of enterprise data center operation, research and investment. By working closely with its customers and integrating current IO technology, the company has built a data center solution that addresses enterprise requirements for high-availability, geographic neutrality, just-in-time scalability, compartmentalization, concurrent maintainability and value.
According to Slessman, “IO.Anywhere™ again proves that not all data centers are created equal.”
