The Chan Soon-Shiong Institute for Advanced Health, which announced earlier this year that it would establish headquarters in Phoenix, has, with NantWorks LLC and National LambdaRail, selected IO, “the leading provider of next-generation modular data center technology and services,” to support the giant data center that the CSS Institute is establishing in Phoenix.

“Now, for the first time, we are able to bring together a high-performance communications network, dedicated storage capacity and high-performance computing,” said Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, Chairman of the CSS Institute, NantWorks and the NLR. “This is the infrastructure that we have so far lacked for healthcare, and which is vital to translate genomic data into actionable clinical decision making. It is the beginning of 21st century medicine.”

“In addition to generating massive volumes of information requiring high-performance IT, the regulatory environment of the healthcare ecosystem also requires a highly protected and reliable infrastructure,” said Anthony J. D’Ambrosi, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “IO’s high-density and ultra-secure infrastructure enables healthcare IT to accomplish their goals both today and into the future.”
