Benefits of Underground Data Centers

Iron Mountain underground data centers offer natural energy efficiency, reduced risk of natural and man-made disasters, a nearly unlimited floor-load weight capacity and an additional physical security.

 

Why Go Underground?

Surrounded by natural limestone, our underground data centers have a reduced risk of natural and man-made disaster, nearly unlimited floor-load weight capacity and an additional physical security layer specific to the subterranean nature of our facilities.

Energy Efficient

Natural energy efficiency at our underground data centers contributes to low PUE. Year-round ambient temperatures stay as low as 52°F meaning the data center doesn’t need to work as hard to keep your infrastructure cool. An aquifer also provides naturally cooled water at WPA-1.

Security & Compliance

Increased security, carrier-neutral access to dark fiber & national providers, and comprehensive compliant support for FISMA High, HIPAA, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, and SOC 2 Type II make Iron Mountain underground data centers ideal for backup and disaster recovery needs.
