i/o Data Centers Gains Phoenix Site

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- i/o Data Centers today announced that it has acquired a state-of-the-art and high-power industrial colocation facility in Phoenix. The new site will be called i/o Data Centers "Phoenix ONE" and is comprised of a 530,000 square foot facility located on a 31-acre campus. i/o Data Centers will convert the site to its next high-technology, high-security data center and will re-locate its corporate headquarters to the facility as well. The development plan for this Phoenix colocation is fully funded and calls for delivery of power and space to users beginning June 1, 2009.

The i/o Data Centers Phoenix ONE site will be an addition to its current 125,000 square foot Scottsdale ONE colocation facility and headquarters. The announcement comes on the heels of a recent $56 million cash infusion from venture capital firm Sterling Partners of Chicago.

"The Phoenix colocation facility is a great fit for i/o's data center and the local community," said Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon. "It is perfectly situated in Central Phoenix and offers the size and abundant supply of power to attract numerous Fortune 500 companies, while providing high-wage, highly-skilled job opportunities for local Phoenix residents. We welcome i/o to Phoenix."
