FORTRUST Data Center 2.0 Deployment and Powered by IO Partnership Yielding Outstanding Results

DENVER, CO, Dec 05, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- FORTRUST, the Rocky Mountain Region's premium data center and colocation services provider, is receiving delivery of additional IO.Anywhere(TM) data center modules through its "Powered by IO(R)" partnership. This expansion is due to increased demand from Data Center as a Service (DCaaS(TM)) customers for the high density, secure and efficient modular solution in its Denver multi-tenant data center.

FORTRUST and IO will be exhibiting at the Gartner Data Center Conference this week in Las Vegas where IO is showcasing an IO.Anywhere module. Sales representatives from both companies will be providing tours of the data module to attendees. Rob McClary, Vice President of FORTRUST, states, "The technology is best understood upon viewing a data module in person. The opportunity to personally tour attendees through the technology is invaluable." The IO.Anywhere data modules are a fully integrated data center technology that provides unprecedented flexibility, reliability and energy efficiency. They are setting the standard for secure, efficient, high-performance data centers. The modules are purpose-built technology and provide customers a solution that can accommodate high power densities and an increased level of security for their IT environments. The modular technology allows for increased rack densities of 400-800 watts per square foot. The modules are equipped with an intelligent control system via the IO.OS(R) data center operating system, which allows customers insight of their environment with real time data and increased accessibility.

McClary states, "The just in time delivery of the IO.Anywhere data modules through our 'Powered by IO partnership' enables FORTRUST to add capacity in 200kW and 400kW increments within 60 days of customer demand. We are finding the new technology has generated increased interest among both current and prospective customers with higher power density requirements." FORTRUST has already installed customers in the data modules they deployed in their Denver data center upon initial install. FORTRUST has ordered additional modules through their partnership with IO and have currently pre-signed customers for additional data module deployment. Additional data modules will continue to be added over time in FORTRUST's flagship Denver facility as demand continues.

FORTRUST also is preparing for new customer migration into data modules in the IO Phoenix facility. McClary adds, "We expect to continue to fill our facility with the IO.Anywhere data modules and are excited to be able to do so in such a timely manner through our Powered by IO partnership." "FORTRUST is a premier example of how Powered by IO can help accelerate growth for data center and IO's Ecosystem service providers," said Jim Kleeman, Executive Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, IO.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
