IO Launches Government Programs Business Unit

Retired U.S. Air Force Brigadier General Ronald Yaggi to Head IO’s Government Business Unit

IO, the leading provider of digital energy technology, today announced the appointment of retired U.S. Air Force Brigadier General Ronald Yaggi to the newly created role of Senior Vice President of Government Programs.

George D. Slessman, CEO of IO stated, “I am excited to have Ron join IO. His track record of leadership, execution and service made him the clear choice to lead IO’s Government Programs business. Under Ron’s leadership, IO will extend our commercial tradition of excellence; designing, engineering and delivering digital energy technology to the defense and service of our country and its allies.”

“I joined the company because IO offers the most secure, technologically advanced and purpose-engineered modular data center in the entire industry, which will not only improve cyber operations but also offer substantial savings to the government,” said Mr. Yaggi. “As many defense, homeland security, and other critical systems operate on a ‘failure is not an option’ basis, IO is ideally suited to address the most demanding, just-in-time needs of government organizations through its digital energy technology products and services.”

Mr. Yaggi joins IO from Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), where he was General Manager leading Defense Intelligence and Cyber Operations teams, and previously was Director of Federal Information Assurance Solutions. Prior to entering the private sector, General Yaggi had a distinguished career of military service. Yaggi served as senior military advisor to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy during two separate presidential administrations. He has also served as Senior Director and Program Manager for intelligence and information operations, and his career includes virtually every facet of intelligence, including analysis, operations, training, network-centric warfare, resource management, systems integration, and senior level management.

The IO.Anywhere® modular data center system, optimized and managed with the IO.OS® data center infrastructure operating system, can be rapidly deployed and scaled both centrally and in the field, and is engineered to withstand environmental, logical and physical threats.
