IO Opens Factory to Manufacture Modular Data Centers

IO Data Centers (“IO”), a leader in innovative data center technologies, today announced the opening of its 221,000-square-foot modular data center factory in Phoenix to produce its IO.Anywhere™ fully integrated data center modules. The IO factory’s initial capacity allows for up to 18 MW of data center modules per month. The first IO.Anywhere™ modules are slated to roll off the assembly line in the first half of 2011 to fulfill existing orders.

IO’s data centers and modular systems are used to create and operate largest-scale and “always-on” private and public clouds, enterprise data centers, Web properties and other mission-critical IT environments. With IO.Anywhere™, customers now have the option to deploy these modules to any of their own IT sites and maintain them with their own IO-trained and certified staff.

IO.Anywhere™ data center modules include 100% of the critical infrastructure required for an always-on data center, and are built on an architecture that can scale to tens of megawatts of uninterruptible power and thousands of cabinets in a single deployment.

At the foundation of IO.Anywhere™ is the IO.OS™ operating system. The fully integrated data center monitoring, alarming, remote control and management system provides real-time information on the critical service infrastructure. Enterprises use IO.OS™ to integrate the power and energy recovery layer into their IT stack.

“We have seen incredible demand for IO.Anywhere™ from all types of users, as no other way of deploying data center capacity can match its quality and scalability,” said George D. Slessman, CEO of IO. Slessman added, “Our customers no longer have to deal with a disjointed series of data center acquisitions and construction projects in order to create data center capacity. IO.Anywhere™ delivers enterprise data center capacity whenever and wherever our customers need it.”

IO.Anywhere™ modules can be configured, delivered and operational in a matter of weeks due to IO’s direct control over design, manufacturing, installation and operations – resulting in faster time-to-market and lower operating costs for its customers. The opening of the IO.Anywhere™ factory means that today any data center can be transformed into a more flexible and scalable asset, the lifecycle of current infrastructure can be extended, and users of all sizes can reduce their total cost of ownership.
