The Iron Mountain Data Center is located 220 feet underground this is a 145 acre former limestone mine.

  • 200-Acre Iron Mountain-Owned Underground Campus
  • 220-Feet Below the Surface
  • Consistent Delivery of Turnkey Data Center Space
  • N+1 Electrical Systems (A/B paths - cabinet through generator)
  • N+1 Mechanical and Cooling
  • Limestone Slab Nearly Unlimited Floor-Load Weight Limit
  • High-Density Ready (up to 20 kW per cabinet/rack)
  • 100% Usable Computer Room Space - No Infrastructure in Room
  • Custom Hot/Cold Aisle Containment Solutions Available
  • Powered by 100% Renewable Energy
  • Natural, Geothermal Cooling Reduced Energy Consumption

Operational and expansion costs are much lower than most above-ground facilities. The data center pumps 53-degree water from an underground aquifer to cool its systems.

The mine has two major substations underground that draw power from West Penn Power's grid network. At full capacity, the Iron Mountain data center could span 500,000 square feet of space and could consume roughly 40 megawatts of power.
