SELECTED OFFERING
Underground Colocation

REQUIREMENTS
Underground Location, High Security & Compliance Standards

THE CHALLENGE

Carbonite needed to find a partner that could provide data resilience, security, compliance, certifications and physical locations that were not susceptible to disasters. The company wanted to get out of the business of managing its own data center and focus on helping their existing customer base.

THE RESULTS

Carbonite was able to leverage Iron Mountain's underground facility for their data center, allowing them to focus on the service they provide to their customers rather than worrying about owning and managing their own internal data center.

IN THEIR WORDS

“The partnership that Carbonite has with Iron Mountain has always been based on trust..They have been focused on our business and that has been very important to us.”
- Senior Director of Operations, Carbonite
