The Tough Questions
Was the development of the modular data center too big of a move for IO?
IO has 1,459,000 sq. ft. (831,000 in New Jersey, 538,000 in Phoenix, and 90,000 in Scottsdale) of data center space. How much of that is already committed or sold?
As of November 2011, IO Data Centers website still shows that IO abides by the SAS 70 internal controls. When will IO make the switch to SSAE 16?
