ENTERPRISE & FEDERAL-READY Northern Virginia Data Center

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

Iron Mountain’s 83-acre Northern Virginia data center campus is located in Manassas, the heart of the world’s largest and fastest-growing data center market. Demand is driven by highly secure and reliable data center services, low total cost of ownership, and easy access to the largest network and peering interconnection site in the United States.

The campus development plan calls for 4 data centers, 915,000 square feet and 60 megawatts of utility power to support Iron Mountain’s delivery of wholesale data center and colocation services. VA-1, the first of the campus data centers, features 10.5 megawatts of Uptime Tier III-certified data center capacity across six data halls.

Iron Mountain’s flexible design coupled with high capital, energy and tax efficiencies create an ideal environment for a wide range of use cases such as corporate and public-sector disaster recovery sites, hybrid cloud deployments and wholesale leasing options for hyper-scale cloud providers.

Why choose Manassas over an Ashburn data center? Iron Mountain VA-1 customers benefit from increased protection (perimeter offsets and secure access controls that meet law enforcement and intelligence standards), reduced taxes, lower power costs and dark fiber cross-connect access to the entire Northern Virginia data center market. This includes round-trip latency to the main peering fabric and data centers in Ashburn VA in under 0.5 milliseconds.

Federal Agencies can quickly comply with the August 1, 2016 memorandum upholding the Data Center Consolidation and Optimization Initiative by colocating at VA-1. Iron Mountain’s FISMA High Northern Virginia data center campus will meet or exceed DCOI stipulations for energy efficiency and PUE, metered power and DCIM creating an ideal migration and consolidation option.

230,000+ customers, including 95% of the Fortune 1000, choose Iron Mountain for our 60+ years of success in storage, privacy and logistics as well as our comprehensive compliance support that includes FISMA High, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS Level 1, HIPAA, and SOC 2 Type II.
