Data Recovery > IO Phoenix Trying To Beat-Out Microsoft's Mesa Global Command Center

According to a report from DataCenterDynamics in Feb 2016
IO purchased approximately nine acres of land to the south of the existing facility earlier this month. The company envisions a building that has been designed to house 600 pre-fabricated BaseLayer Core data center modules  modules on top of each other – something it says is a first for the industry.

It also demonstrates the company’s commitment to continue to invest in its hometown community.”
