IO New Jersey First Modular Data Center in New York City Metropolitan Area to Achieve Uptime Institute Tier III Design Certification

IO, the leading provider of next-generation modular data center technology and services, announced today that IO New Jersey has been awarded the prestigious Uptime Institute Tier III Design Certification. With more than 831,000 square feet of space available, IO New Jersey is the only Tier III-designed commercial data center available in the New York City metropolitan area that is also 100 percent modular.

Built using the IO.Anywhere® modular technology platform, IO New Jersey is the largest data center available in the New York City metropolitan area, breaking beyond the limitations of traditional, real estate-based infrastructure by providing reliable, cost-effective data center capacity to customers when they need it. At IO New Jersey, organizations can use high-value colocation services to support cloud computing, high-availability applications, business continuity, data center consolidation and other strategic technology initiatives.

Uptime Institute Tier III has emerged as the premium level of service for commercial data centers,” said Debbie Seidman, Director, Technical Services, Uptime Institute Professional Services. “Accordingly, Tier III brings a true 24×7 capability to the infrastructure by eliminating any down time for maintenance. IO has achieved this high level of availability with the design of their IO.Anywhere deployment in New Jersey.

George Slessman, CEO of IO, said, “IO New Jersey is the first modular data center in the New York City metropolitan area to achieve the Uptime Institute Tier III Design Certification. Not only are IO.Anywhere modular data centers more economic and flexible to deploy than construction-based data centers, this Tier III Design Certification clearly demonstrates that the IO.Anywhere technology platform is enterprise class. Enterprises, governments and services providers can now serially deliver secure, concurrently maintainable data center infrastructure to their users in weeks, not years, and at a fraction of the total cost of a traditional data center construction project.”


What Does Tier III Mean?

The fundamental concept of Uptime Institute Tier III is Concurrent Maintenance: the capability to remove each and every capacity component and distribution path, on a planned basis, for equipment work or replacement, without impacting IT operations.
