Iron Mountain colocation rewards customers with a wide range of benefits for leaving the legacy, in-house data center model for something better. Examples include lower total cost of ownership, increased operational efficiency, reduced CAPEX, transparent and predictable costs, diverse carrier and cloud access and worry-free scalability.

However, we know data center change is not without its risks and logistical challenges. This is why the most frequently cited reason companies like you choose Iron Mountain over competing colocation services providers is confidence.

Since 1951, Iron Mountain has built a strong, global reputation as a leader in asset protection and logistics. This includes a 30-year track record of proven colocation success. Our Tier III data centers and colocation facilities provide the reliability, security and energy efficiency you would expect and our experienced personnel help you mitigate risks with comprehensive compliance support and end-to-end migration services.

You know us. You trust us. So does your CEO and your CFO. That’s why, whether you have a single cabinet or a wholesale colocation need, the safe choice is the right choice.

Iron Mountain. Colocate with Confidence.
