Storage and information management provider Iron Mountain has announced the expansion of its Manassas, Northern Virginia, data center campus, with construction of VA-2 underway. This new data center represents an incremental $225 million when fully built out.
Iron Mountain opened its first building on the campus, VA-1, in September 2017, investing approximately $100 million to establish a data center presence in Northern Virginia. At full build-out of this VA-2 facility, Iron Mountain will employ nearly 50 people at the data center campus. Iron Mountain currently expects to complete development on the first phase of their VA-2 data center in the first quarter of 2020.
The new Manassas data center would support continued economic growth in Prince William County.
“We are excited to be expanding our presence in the largest data center market in the world, and at the same time continuing our commitment to economic development in the dynamic Prince William County,” said Mark Kidd, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Iron Mountain Data Centers. “By developing additional capacity in Manassas, we will be able to continue to provide our customers with purpose-built, enterprise-class data center capacity to solve their evolving IT architecture challenges.”
Office and Storage Space
Currently at VA-1, on an average day, nearly 100 of Iron Mountain’s customers and vendors work out of that building. Iron Mountain anticipates this trend to continue with more than double the amount of office and storage space available to its customers at the new data center.
