Today modular data center operator and manufacturer IO made an interesting move, offering its IO OS data center operating system as a standalone software product. Originally designed for its modular IO Anywhere product, the software also offers intelligent control of traditional infrastructure as well.
IO has been gaining some traction lately with its modules, for which it operates giant facilities in both Phoenix and New Jersey. I've wondered when they might open up in a new market like Chicago, but I guess that they've been busy working on the underlying internal management of such assets - which makes just as much sense.
Last week, Photobucket said they will be using their modular DCaaS services at IO Phoenix to support their growing taffic needs as their users upload more and more video. While we hear of traffic growth in the 50% annual range, video uploads in particular have gone up by 3.5 times between July of 2010 and 2011 for the media sharing service. Photobucket found it cheaper to relocate from their current space than to renew.
And just today, Suntron corporation announced that it will also be leveraging those same DCaaS services at IO Phoenix. Suntron's corporate headquarters and southwest manufacturing facility in Phoenix, and needs the space and the added level of security in service of its contracts in the defence industry.
