Iron Mountain Data Centers, a large global provider of data center and colocation services, is now an official LINX ConneXions reseller partner. By becoming a 100G ConneXions reseller partner, Iron Mountain can now offer peering and IXP (Internet Exchange Point) services at its London (LON-1) location, a key global interconnection hub.
Iron Mountain became a member of LINX in 2019 and keeps growing its network service offerings and profile within the interconnection and peering community.
“Partnering with LINX is something that has been on our network expansion roadmap,” said Fran Scalzo, GM Network Services at Iron Mountain Data Centers. “We’re pleased that we can now offer peering and IXP services to our customer base and we’re looking forward expanding our partnership with LINX in the future.”
Iron Mountain’s 100G reseller port is now LIVE at LINX in London, so customers can take advantage of Iron Mountain Data Centers’ remote peering services as well as new networks looking to connect.
“We’re really excited to have Iron Mountain Data Centers on board at our peering LANs in London,” said Jennifer Holmes, CCO at LINX. “Here at LINX, our business model is to work closely with key partners, like Iron Mountain, to achieve growth in member numbers, traffic and opportunities.”
