Underground Data Centers
Benefits of Underground Data Centers
Iron Mountain underground data centers offer natural energy efficiency, reduced risk of natural and man-made disasters, a nearly unlimited floor-load weight capacity and an additional physical security.
Why Go Underground?
Surrounded by natural limestone, our underground data centers have a reduced risk of natural and man-made disaster, nearly unlimited floor-load weight capacity and an additional physical security layer specific to the subterranean nature of our facilities.
Natural energy efficiency at our underground data centers contributes to low PUE. Year-round ambient temperatures stay as low as 52°F meaning the data center doesn’t need to work as hard to keep your infrastructure cool. An aquifer also provides naturally cooled water at WPA-1.
Security & Compliance
Increased security, carrier-neutral access to dark fiber & national providers, and comprehensive compliant support for FISMA High, HIPAA, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, and SOC 2 Type II make Iron Mountain underground data centers ideal for backup and disaster recovery needs.
