IO has been awarded a contract by The Juilliard School, the world-renowned performing arts conservatory.

As part of the agreement, IO will provide Juilliard with Data Center as a Service (DCaaS) delivered out of the IO New Jersey data center. This approach supplies Juilliard a high-performance, cost-effective solution—without having to invest resources in building and maintaining its own data center.

"The mission of The Juilliard School is to provide the highest caliber of artistic education and we look for premier technology solutions that help us advance that mission," said Tunde Giwa, CTO, The Juilliard School. "IO provides us enterprise-class infrastructure delivered as a service that is unmatched in the New York City region. IO allows us to commit to only the capacity that we need today but also have the flexibility and agility to expand quickly as our needs evolve."

With more than 831,000 sq ft of space available, IO New Jersey is the largest data center in the New York City metropolitan area. IO New Jersey utilizes the IO.Anywhere modular data center system and is the first commercially available modular data center in existence.
