Iron Mountain Provides Data Center Customers Unbiased Access to Cloud Services and Solution Providers

Iron Mountain® Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), the storage and information management company, today announced an online community for data center customers to find and connect with cloud service providers via the Iron Mountain Data Center Marketplace.

The site gives customers a neutral platform for shopping a range of cloud service solution options, enabling faster implementation times without compromising security and compliance requirements. Conversely, the Marketplace provides a venue for cloud and solution providers located in Iron Mountain’s data center facilities to promote their offerings to organizations located within Iron Mountain’s data centers.

“We want to create a convenient platform for Iron Mountain customers to easily find and quickly implement the cloud solutions they need from the service providers in our marketplace,” said Mark Kidd, senior vice president and general manager, data centers, Iron Mountain. “Solution providers also appreciate having access to Iron Mountain’s longstanding relationships, which includes more than 95 percent of the Fortune 1000. The ability to join the Marketplace is a great opportunity for them to make their services available to a large customer base. It’s a win-win for both our providers and customers.”

“Iron Mountain’s Data Center Marketplace is already working for us. We received an organization’s service request even before we had completed our installation in Iron Mountain’s Data Center,” said AJ Ketner, division manager for Computer Aid. “Computer Aid provides application support, development and knowledge capture services to Fortune 1000 and government organizations. Iron Mountain’s Data Center Marketplace gives us the opportunity to efficiently expand our reach to a much wider audience.”

Mike Mitsch, vice president of NEC Corporation of America, said: “With the introduction of the Marketplace, Iron Mountain has established a new level of solution delivery options for data center clients that are seeking secure, off-premise computing. The ability to deploy an optimized infrastructure comprising storage, servers, and advanced networking from a supplier that has been vetted by Iron Mountain accelerates the adoption of off-premise computing.”

Another solution provider, Black Lotus which provides cloud-based, carrier-grade distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation services to more than 650,000 end users globally, commented: “Iron Mountain’s Data Center Marketplace is an ideal platform for Black Lotus to engage with organizations that maintain high standards of security and compliance,” said Xenophon Giannis, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Black Lotus. “Iron Mountain’s commitment to carrier and service provider neutrality allows Black Lotus to offer enterprise companies solutions for protecting their networks and defending against threats to availability at significantly lower costs than on-premise solution alternatives.”

In September, the company broke ground on its first regional data center in Northborough, Massachusetts, which is scheduled to open May 2014.
