Choose Your Data Center with Confidence. Protect What Matters Most.
Iron Mountain’s Western Pennsylvania data center (WPA-1) is one of the world’s most secure colocation facilities, conveniently located 60 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh.
The underground data center is part of a heavily guarded, 200-acre campus located 220 feet below the earth’s surface. The facility stores and protects irreplaceable assets, priceless collections and critical Information Technology environments. Colocated systems are kept safe via perimeter security, armed-guard checkpoints, metal detectors, mantraps, biometric access controls, and CCTV cameras. These features, combined with resilient infrastructure and Iron Mountain’s commitment to operational excellence, make the Western Pennsylvania data center ideal for both production and disaster recovery data center deployments.
Federal agencies, 94% of the Fortune 1000 and some of the world’s most highly regulated organizations choose Iron Mountain for our 60+ years of success in storage, privacy and logistics. Our comprehensive data center compliance support includes FISMA High, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS 3.1, HIPAA, and SOC 2 Type II, augmenting the existing framework of 222,000+ Iron Mountain customers. WPA-1’s campus features more than 1.8 million square feet, providing nearly unlimited capacity so customers may deploy their IT systems with absolute confidence in long-term scalability.
30+ years of excellence in wholesale data center and colocation operations has uniquely prepared our engineers to deliver both outstanding availability and energy efficiency. The scale of Iron Mountain’s Pennsylvania data center complex supports wholesale deployments with consumption-based (metered) power pricing and the ability to secure low electrical rates on a long-term basis. Optimal Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) is achieved through geothermal cooling (ambient underground temperatures in the mid-50s) and an aquifer that uses 100% recycled chilled water for reduced environmental impact. Iron Mountain’s low PUE rating enables public-sector organizations complying with the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) to meet the Department of Energy’s Executive Order (EO) 13693 standard for new data centers.
Services offered at Iron Mountain’s Western Pennsylvania data center include dedicated data centers, private suites, secure cages, individual cabinets, carrier-neutral network, multi-homed BGP-based managed internet access, DCIM-enabled portal, 24-hour helping hands and data center asset tracking.
