IO New Jersey Receives the Prestigious Tier III Certification

IO, the leading provider of next-generation modular data center technology and services, announced today that the IO New Jersey has been awarded with one of the most prestigious Uptime Institute Tier III Design Certification.The Uptime Institute Tier III’s basic principle lies in concurrent maintenance which means it can eliminate any capacity component from its path in a well planned manner without hindering the IT operations. The data center which is spread over 831,000 square feet,  is the only tier III-designed commercial data center existing in the New York City metropolitan area.

IO New Jersey is built with IO.Anywhere® modular technology platform; it provides unswerving, lucrative data center capacity to customers when the need arises. The added benefits of using IO New Jersey include the access to use high-value collocation services to support cloud computing, business continuity and other strategic technology initiatives.

Jeff Wood, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Infrastructure and Allianz Asset Management of America L.P stated that, “It would be too expensive and time consuming for our team to procure or build a Tier III certified data center on our own. With IO.Anywhere, we can purchase the capacity we need and quickly garner the benefits of a secure, high performance enterprise-class data center without the associated cost of a construction project.”

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