IO, the leading provider of next-generation modular data center technology and services, announced today that it has been awarded a contract with BookIt.com®, a premier online travel company dedicated to providing travelers with the most intuitive online booking experience. The internet continues to be the most prevalent tool for researching and booking travel.
“We understand the value of incorporating technology to optimise business. Our very livelihood depends on it, especially now as travelers spend a significant amount of time researching travel to find the best deals, we need a data center that allows us the flexibility to grow quickly,” said Iain Saxton – VP Technology at BookIt.com. “IO.Anywhere delivers a rapidly scalable, always-on technology solution that traditional colocation providers just don’t measure up to in both price and performance.”
As part of the agreement, IO will provide BookIt.com with Data Center as a Service (DCaaS™) at IO Phoenix, delivered through its modular technology platform IO.Anywhere.
