ServerLIFT Visits i/o’s Phoenix ONE Data Center

Phoenix ONE Data Center Tour:

Recently some of the ServerLIFT team had the opportunity to visit one of the world’s largest data centers! Lucky for us, i/o data centers calls Arizona home and it just so happens that their Phoenix ONE data center is one of the most technologically advanced facilities in the world.

i/o 538,000 square foot monster facility houses more than 80,000 square feet of office space, allowing its corporate headquarters to conveniently reside at the same location, alongside the most advanced colocation space in the world. The rest of the 460,000 square feet are is covered by raised floor, divided into four data center “pods” and the facility as a whole has been awarded Tier III Design Certification by the Uptime Institute.

Besides i/o’s enormous size, Phoenix ONE boasts a number of really cool innovative data center design features.

The facility has its own on-site sub-station providing 55 MW of utility power and a huge array of solar panels on the roof.

To keep things cool, Phoenix ONE uses a thermal storage system, ultrasonic humidifiers, LED lighting, CRAHs (computer room air handlers), high-efficiency chillers, and sealed server racks.

Like most data centers, i/o is very concerned with their environmental impact and has taken measures to help make their facility as green as possible, down to their recycled car tire flooring.

To keep things safe, i/o secures the perimeter with automatic bollards and a guard station that is monitored 24 hours a day. If you’re lucky enough to get past the lobby, you will be watched closely by digital video surveillance and be subjected to numerous bio-metric and ID card screenings. Phoenix ONE is intent on keeping anyone who shouldn’t be on the premise out. And with that, our tour ended and we were back to the offices at ServerLIFT headquarters.
