Iron Mountain, global storage, information management and colocation services company, has signed a 6MW data center pre-lease expansion with a U.S. based Fortune 100 customer in Phoenix, Arizona, at its AZP-2 data center. The AZP-2 data center would support the growth demands, network proximity and scalable capacity needs of the customer. The lease is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2021.
Iron Mountain’s hyperscale-ready AZP-2 data center is part of a 40-acre, 3-data center, metro-connected campus within several miles of east downtown Phoenix. The facility, spanning more than 530,000 gross square feet, would meet dedicated requirements of up to 48 megawatts of total IT capacity at full build out.
“We strive to support the growth and expansion needs of our strategic customers as well as our retail enterprise clients and this new deployment at our Phoenix data center campus validates that goal,” said Rick Crutchley, Vice President & General Manager, North America at Iron Mountain Data Centers. “We continue to see strong demand in the Phoenix market and are pleased that we are able to differentiate our solution offerings, including our compliance and sustainability certifications, which enable us to partner with prestigious global customers.”
Additional highlights of Iron Mountain’s Phoenix data center campus would include:
- Hybrid-IT enablement – centralized access to hundreds of customers, clouds, carriers, and other IT services providers
- Network density – carrier-neutral campus with 24 native network providers, access to diverse meet-me rooms, and the ability to connect to multiple public cloud on-ramps
- Support for multiple use cases – hyper-scale cloud node, hybrid-IT colocation, local production IT, local/regional business continuity/disaster recovery, and consolidation/migration
- Hyper-scale ready – providing the ability to scale

Including leasable capacity and land and buildings held for future development, Iron Mountain’s data center platform can support more than 375 megawatts of IT capacity at full build-out.
The AZP-2 data center is part of Iron Mountain’s estimated $430 million total investment in the campus and their five-year development plan.
