Iron Mountain delivers another 6MW expansion at its Phoenix data centre


Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM) has signed a 6MW data centre pre-lease expansion with a U.S. based Fortune 100 customer in Phoenix, Arizona.

The pre-lease expansion is at the company’s AZP-2 data centre. Iron Mountain announced the initial 6MW deal with this customer in September 2020.

The company said its AZP-2 data centre supports 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 AZP-2 data centre is part of a 40-acre, 3-data centre, metro-connected campus within several miles of east downtown Phoenix.

The facility, spanning more than 530,000 gross sqf, meets requirements of up to 48MW of total IT capacity at full build out, according to the company.

“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 centre 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.”

AZP-2 is connected to Iron Mountain's existing data centres - AZP-1 in Phoenix and AZS-1 in Scottsdale - that supports 47MW and a robust network ecosystem.

The facility is powered by 100% renewable energy and offers customers’ access to Green Power Pass.

Iron Mountain's global data centre platform consists of 15 operational facilities across 13 markets and three continents.

Iron Mountain's data centre platform can support more than 375MW of IT capacity at full build-out, including leasable capacity and land and buildings held for future development according to the company.

In September 2020, the companyannounced that it had signed a 6MW data centre pre-lease with a US-based Fortune 100 customer in the same data centre facility.
