Global storage, information management, and colocation services provider Iron Mountain will expand their EMEA data center footprint through the development of a new highly interconnected 27-Megawatt colocation data center at full build in London.
The three-story, 25.000 square meter colocation data center, located in the Slough Trading Estate in the London region, delivers 27 megawatts of IT load capacity that is evenly spread across three identical data hall floors of 9 megawatts each, with N+2 redundancy.
LON-2, like all Iron Mountain data centers, will be powered entirely by renewable energy while being accredited by the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) for environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
“We are excited to announce new colocation opportunities at our second data center in this highly connected market as well as adding new capacity at our LON-1 data center, which continues to be in high demand,” said Eric Boonstra, Vice President and General Manager, Europe at Iron Mountain Data Centers. “Like other Iron Mountain data centers, our Slough data centers are well-suited for enterprise, hyperscale and cloud organizations seeking a highly interconnected data center partner with industry-leading compliance and security.”
Additional highlights of the LON-2 colocation data center build would include:
- Hyperscale & Enterprise ready – provides the ability to scale with unmatched security and reliability
- Network density – carrier-neutral access to diverse meet-me rooms, leading global peering exchanges and the ability to connect to multiple public-cloud on-ramps
- Support for multiple use cases – hyperscale cloud node, hybrid-IT colocation, local/regional business continuity/disaster recovery, and consolidation/migration
- Highly energy efficient
- Powered by 100% renewable energy – leveraging Green Power Pass
- Operational excellence – 100% uptime SLA
- Compliance – SOC 2 Type II, SOC 3; ISO 27001, 50001, and 140001; HIPAA; PCI-DSS; FISMA High/NIST SP 800-53
Iron Mountain’s global data center platform spans 13 markets and three continents, with 15 operating sites. At complete build-out, Iron Mountain’s data center platform can host more than 445 megawatts of IT capacity, including leasable capacity, land, and buildings reserved for future development.
