It's Time to Move Your Creative Operations to the Cloud
It was never a matter of if and only a matter of when organizations would need to move portions of their operations to the cloud. Many companies were already working in the cloud or making plans to do so when the COVID-19 work-from-home mandates were announced. Companies lacking cloud-based infrastructures were forced to quickly put a plan of action into place.
For those companies still struggling to determine the right solution, IO Integration has just released our private Creative Operations Cloud Infrastructure, IO Space™. IO Space™ is a reliable, scalable, secure, and cost-effective solution designed to host creative operations in the cloud.
Our team has spent years researching, testing, and validating a variety of cloud solutions to meet the stringent requirements of IO Integration and our customers. Not only does IO Space offer a reliable cloud infrastructure specifically designed for creative operations, we have created a variety of solutions and service bundles to maximize the productivity of remote workers with built-in virtual efficiency.
“High-performance cloud solutions are a no longer a luxury but a necessity for remote production teams." Says Mike Holt, CEO, IO Integration "We’ve created IO Space to deliver a secure, reliable, and scalable cloud infrastructure with products and service packages specifically designed to meet the needs of modern marketing and creative organizations and allow them to maintain control of their critical digital assets.”
IO Space™ Products and Services include:
IO Drive – Automatic synchronization of remote workstations with a Xinet server
IO Backup – Customized cloud backup of assets, data and virtual machines
IO Studio – Virtually control high performance workstations in the cloud

As an added value to the IO Space™ ecosystem, we have joined forces with a powerful player in the cloud storage arena, Backblaze. IO Space™ plus Backblaze combines our reliable Creative Operations Cloud Infrastructure with robust cloud back up to offer alternative data centers for secure, affordable, and reliable data storage.
“Wow, Xinet is cutting edge again - IO Drive coupled with Xinet is a no brainer for anyone doing creative production with remote teams.“
- Rick Walch, Colortek
A friction free experience
IO Space™ allows for the centralization of creative operation technologies. This centralization lowers the burden on IT staff, allows for easier access on the LAN or the WAN, and delivers real-time scalability. IO Space™ is a truly a future proof solution for distributed studio production and creative service teams. Rather than putting together a random selection of products and forcing them to work together, IO Integration has carefully curated a marketing and creative production tech stack in the cloud.
“After beta testing IO Drive, the value is immediately obvious for remote studios.
This is a great solution.”
- Robert Pepe, thelabnyc
Smart, secure, reliable, efficient and cost effective
With reduced costs and complexity, flexible scalability, and IO Integration managing all of it, making the decision to move to the IO Space Cloud Infrastructure should be an easy one. Security will always be a concern but today you may actually be more exposed to breach vulnerabilities by NOT being in the cloud. The belief that your assets have to be onsite in your datacenter to be truly secure is no longer accurate. Cloud service providers can be much more efficient when it comes to investing in security than trying to build and maintain technology on your own.
Discover how you easy moving your
Creative Operations to the cloud can be with IO Space.
