US DOE Better Buildings Challenge Partner – FISMA High Security – Supports: FDCCI, EO 13693, COOP & DCOI Mandates

Iron Mountain government data center services meet FISMA High standards and are secure, reliable and cost-effective options for public-sector organizations looking to comply with federal data center regulations.

Since 1951, Federal Government organizations have trusted Iron Mountain to protect what matters most. Today, Iron Mountain secures sensitive IT assets, records and data for the vast majority of public sector agencies. Whether you choose an Iron Mountain purpose-built or underground data center for production or DR needs, your IT infrastructure is safe thanks to numerous physical security layers in highly protected facilities. Customers typically reduce total cost of ownership by over 30% when compared to an in-house solution, helping agencies better address the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI).

Iron Mountain government data center services help public sector organizations comply with the following.

Our offering presents a compelling federal data center value proposition: FISMA compliant data centers, longstanding history serving federal agencies, a respected brand you know and trust, and a customer-inspired data center design that yields optimal uptime levels, energy efficiency, predictable expansion capacity, and transparency via DCIM and asset tracking.

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 data centers 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 with air-side economization, innovative containment solutions and geothermal cooling (underground data centers). Iron Mountain’s low PUE rating enables agencies planning their compliance with the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) to meet the Department of Energy’s Executive Order (EO) 13693 standard for new data centers.

Government data center services 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. See below for additional details.
