Security, Redundancy, Reliability, Data Center Interconnection


One of BNC’s clients, a top provider of cloud-based hosting services, offers its end users highly secure and functional access to their work environments anytime, anywhere, from any device. With an uptime promise like that, BNC requires data center partners they can rely on with 100% confidence.


BNC was so impressed with Iron Mountain Data Centers’ capabilities that, rather than just expand its cloud hosting platform capacity, they elected to move a significant portion of their existing cloud hosting infrastructure to Iron Mountain.


“We need partners that are 100% reliable and can deliver 24/7/365. Their uptime history, redundancy capabilities, and complete focus on security are the key reasons why we selected them.”
~BNC Director of Engineering
