Why Choose Iron Mountain's Data Center Interconnection?

Interconnection: one of the primary reasons to go colo instead of staying in-house is the ability to access an ecosystem of networks hosted in the same facility. Order a cross connect via the online portal and Iron Mountain will run a fiber cable from your gear to any consenting customer or provider in the building, campus or exchange.


Secure Connections

In today’s hybrid IT world network and information security are paramount. Eliminate hops and connect straight to the providers you need to thrive in a multi-cloud environment by ordering a simple cross-connect from you to them.

Maximum Performance

Interconnection drives a low-latency network as circuits are within the same building. Distance from your gear to a provider is matter of a few feet and there is no intermediary provider. All cross connects are fiber for max speed.

Reduce Network Costs

Unlike many other colocation providers, Iron Mountain does not overcharge for cross-connects. Stop paying twice for the A and Z sides. With Iron Mountain, there is a one-time setup and a small monthly recurring charge.
