i/o Data Centers has received a $56 million growth equity investment from Chicago-based Sterling Partners. This is believed to be the largest venture capital amount raised in Arizona this year, and possibly one of the largest in 2008 Q4 in the US.

The continued high demand for data center services is not being met by existing supply or by existing service providers. i/o Data Centers is well positioned to lead this next wave of data center expansion.
