Iron Mountian announced on July 9th 2018 that it has started construction to expand its data center campus in Phoenix, one of the fastest growing markets in the U.S. The new 550,000 square-foot, 48-megawatt (MW) multi-tenant and cloud facility is designed to meet the security and performance expectations of the largest public cloud providers and maintain the stringent compliance requirements of global enterprise and public sector customers.
The new data center will be built on a nine-acre parcel adjacent to Iron Mountain's existing 38 MW data center in Phoenix. Like other Iron Mountain data center facilities, this new facility will support key standards such as ISO 27001, FISMA High, PCI-DSS Level 1, HIPAA, SOC 2 Type II and SOC 3.
The first of two phases of construction, scheduled for completion in June 2019, will deliver 24 MW of capacity as part of Iron Mountain's estimated $430 million investment in the campus over the next five-year development plan. When combined with current and potential capacity, the Phoenix campus can support up to approximately 100 MW. Read More at Iron Mountian
