i/o Data Centers Readies Massive NJ Modular Site
March 23rd, 2011 By: Rich Miller
i/o Data Centers is transforming a former New York Times printing plant in New Jersey into the world’s largest modular data center, the company said today. The 830,000 square foot building in Edison, N.J. will become the East Coast hub for Phoenix-based i/o Data Centers, which is converting the building into a facility to house data center capacity in customized containers.
The huge building is adjacent to Exit 10 of the New Jersey Turnpike, providing easy highway access for the colocation provider to roll in its i/o Anywhere product, a family of modular data center components that are being built in the company’s Phoenix factory and can be transported to New Jersey via truck. i/o Data Centers said “several enterprise customers” had already purchased capacity at the Edison site.
The new facility provides the latest example of the new digital economy filling the industrial footprint left behind by is predecessors from the world of print. The Edison site opened in 1992 as a state-of-the-art newspaper printing plant, but was closed in 2008 when the Times reduced the size of its print product and consolidated its printing operations in Queens. Google is currently building a major data center in Finland in a newsprint paper mill.
i/o New Jersey is located next to a large power switching station, and has in-place fiber optic connectivity from two of the largest IP backbones in the world.
The New Jersey facility is part of a broader strategy to make i/o Data Centers a national provider of colocation and data center services. The company currently operates two data centers in the Phoenix market – a 125,000 square foot site in Scottsdale and i/o Phoenix, which at 538,000 square feet is among the world’s largest data centers.
““i/o now controls two of the largest data centers in the world and has the ability to deliver Data Center as a Service (DCaaS) across the entire continent of North America,” said George D. Slessman, CEO of i/o. “We can bring a data center of the magnitude of i/o New Jersey online immediately because of our i/o Anywhere modular data center technology.”
We’ll have more coverage of this project tomorrow.

[...] These cases are available at various retail shops. But the best way to make a choice is only after doing research. A number like 1U or 2U does not make sense if there is no clear notion about the unit through which it is measured. However, this ?U? comes from the term unit. But the real term of the unit is RU, or simply Rack Unit, where one RU or U is defined as 1.75 inches. So a 1U rack amount simply means that the capacity in terms of the rack mount height is 1.75 inches. A 1U rack mount server is equipped to handle high-density rack installations.modular data center [...]
[...] As technology has increased, however, the prices of this storage have dropped dramatically, and many of those thumb drives we carry around these days have a greater storage capacity than some of the earliest hard drives. What this means to you as a hard drive shopper is that you should always buy the largest hard drive you can afford.modular data centers [...]

[...] CD-Rs are also available in manual and automated versions. Automated modes can copy as many as 150 CD-Rs per hour, depending on their capacities. Standalone CD-R copiers can contain two to 16 CD-R copier drives and are very efficient for multi-session copying.modular data center [...]
[...] This design is considered to be a “true” UPS. Unlike the other types of UPS, this one uses the battery as its main source of power and the line power is the secondary source of power. When line power goes out the UPS does not have to convert from one power source to another, it just stops charging the battery.modular data center system [...]
