Iron Mountain Data Centers
Iron Mountain Incorporated (IRM) has protected sensitive public and private sector assets since 1951. The data center business line, a branch of the larger organization, offers industry leading wholesale, retail, and hyper scale data center and colocation services that help Federal Government, and private entities maximize information technology budgets, support compliance, increase energy efficiency, optimize footprint and uphold commitments to security and reliability. The company’s diverse, international portfolio of data center services includes dedicated data centers, underground data centers, private suites, secure cages, modules, and individual cabinets.
Since 2017, IMDC has operated all of its data center locations on 100% renewable energy. In the same effort, every data center location in the enterprise is ISO50001 Energy Management System (EnMS) certified, ensuring continuous improvement of energy efficiency practices across the portfolio. Through these two components, IMDC offers pass-through of the green power to its customers via Green Power Pass, a first of its kind renewable energy solution that enables customers of IMDC to claim green power to achieve GHG Reductions, Science Based Targets, and RE100 goals. It is IMDC’s mission as a steward of the environment to continually improve its sustainability and energy management systems, reduce carbon footprint, and encourage and assist its customers in that same mission. Iron Mountain data centers also delivers significant and competitive cost savings that enable agencies to meet mission requirements and overcome the challenges of unfunded mandates such as FDCCI and EO 13693.
In 2019, Iron Mountain surpassed their original Better Buildings Challenge goal, achieving a 25% reduction in non-IT energy intensity. Iron Mountain accomplished this by utilizing unique green data center features such as geothermal cooling and infrastructure innovations including air and water-side economization. In 2020, Iron Mountain set a new goal to save an additional 30% by 2025 using a 2019 baseline.
