Iron Mountain begins construction on data center
Boston-based Iron Mountain Inc. has begun construction at its 83-acre data center campus in Manassas.
Kessinger/Hunter & Co. is the developer of the first 150,00-square-foot data center on campus.
“We’re seeing an increase in the customer need for highly secure data centers with flexible design for their precise requirements,” Mark Kidd, senior vice president and general manager of Iron Mountain Data Centers, said in statement. “We continue to manage capacity utilization to stay ahead of this need as the portfolio grows and have benefited from pre-leasing activity in existing markets.”
Iron Mountain’s Northern Virginia data center campus will have 60 megawatts of capacity spread across at least four facilities.
The first building, expected to open next summer, will offer 10.5 megawatts of critical power. It is designed to meet requirements of cloud services providers, federal government agencies, systems integrators, financial services firms and health-care companies.
Iron Mountain is a major provider of storage and information management services. Used by more than 220,000 organizations around the world, the company has a real estate network of more than 85 million square feet involving more than 1,400 facilities in 45 countries.
