Choose Your Data Center with Confidence. Protect What Matters Most.

Iron Mountain’s New England Boston data center (BOS-1) is a highly resilient, secure and compliant colocation facility, safely and conveniently located on our 58-acre campus in the Metro West suburb of Northborough.

This purpose-built New England data center has achieved official Tier III design and construction certification from the Uptime Institute. Resilience is ensured as all critical systems are concurrently maintainable. Should bad weather strike, customers rest easy knowing the colocation facility is rated to withstand sustained 149 MPH (Category 4 hurricane) winds and has a Seismic Importance Factor of 1.5. These features, along with dark fiber and on-net carrier-neutral access to tier 1 networks, make Iron Mountain’s Boston data center ideal for both production and disaster recovery data center deployments.

Highly regulated organizations, including 95% of the Fortune 1000, 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 Level 1, HIPAA, and SOC 2 Type II, augmenting the existing framework of 225,000 Iron Mountain customers. Data center areas are protected by multiple layers of security including mantraps, biometric access controls, CCTV cameras, and on-site security officers. With 58 acres of campus capacity, BOS-1 customers grow with confidence in long-term scalability.

30+ years of excellence in colocation operations has uniquely prepared our engineers to deliver both outstanding availability and energy efficiency. Iron Mountain’s Boston data center is the New England region's only LEED Gold-certified multi-tenant data center. Environmental impact and customer power costs are reduced using green data center features such as air-side economization and innovative containment solutions.
