Our Data Centers
From a Data Center Rack to a Hyperscale Data CenterWhether you want an ultra-secure underground data center, a custom hyperscale or edge data center, or an enterprise-ready data center, we can provide the data center solution you need.
Hyperscale Data Centers
What is a hyperscale data center?
Hyperscale data centers are in a league of their own. They need to be able to support thousands of servers and millions of virtual machines. Data center design must be optimized for storage and speed, with a flexible and agile environment and massive scalability. Connectivity counts for a lot, and so does speed to market. Hyperscale cloud builds have very precise and exacting specifications.
The Full Package: Over the years, Iron Mountain Data Centers has become a specialist in providing the flexibility, reliability, security and interconnection that is critical for hyperscale cloud providers.
Cost Efficiency: Our hyperscale data centers support wholesale deployments with 100% renewable energy, consumption-based power pricing, and optimal PUE through geothermal cooling (at select locations) and containment innovations.
Security: Iron Mountain offers some of the world’s most secure data centers and standards. Our multi-layered approach is fully accredited and includes a combination of technical and physical security measures.
Geography: From Europe to Asia to North America, we can bring you closer to your end users.

Cloud and carrier-neutral by design, to give you the power to build your digital world with the networks, clouds, exchanges, service providers and partners you need.
Edge Data Centers
What is an edge data center?Proximity to the end-user, speed and compute power are critical to your ability to gather IoT data and deliver cloud computing resources and cached content to end-users. Strategically-located edge data centers deliver low-latency reach where you need it most, with flexible connectivity options such as SDN and peering providing instant reach across complete markets.

Reduce Overhead Costs: Our data center design reduces energy and OPEX waste. On-site generation, heat recycling, natural cooling solutions and an optimal design PUE, and design flexibility allows you to grow as you go.
Access the Edge: Get closer to your end users with Iron Mountain's strategic edge colocation facilities all over the globe, from Denver to Boston to London and Singapore. We have the strategic edge data center solution that will work for you.
Underground Data Centers
Situated 200+ ft. below the earth’s surface, our underground data centers are some of the most secure facilities in the world. Iron Mountain underground data centers also offer natural energy efficiency.
Energy Efficient: Natural energy efficiency in our underground data centers contributes to low PUE. Year-round ambient temperatures stay as low as 52°F (11°C) meaning the data center doesn’t need to work as hard to keep your infrastructure cool. Our underground lake provides naturally cooled water at WPA-1.
Backup and Disaster Recovery: Increased security, carrier-neutral access to dark fiber & national providers, and comprehensive compliant support for FISMA High, HIPAA, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, and SOC 2 Type II make Iron Mountain underground data centers ideal for backup and disaster recovery data center needs.
Locations: Underground data centers are available at Iron Mountain's Kansas City and Western Pennsylvania data center locations.
