Welcome to Iron Mountain’s premiere underground data center facility, located 200 feet beneath rolling countryside in a former limestone mine. The facility spans 145 acres and provides one of the most physically and environmentally secure colocation infrastructures available.
Security is job one at “The Underground.” Armed guards stand watch 24X7 at this 3-ton steel gate.
More than 2,700 employees work in this underground city spread across 145 acres. The facility has its own restaurant, fire trucks, water treatment plant and a week’s worth of back-up power.
You can move your operations to a secure, compliant, and highly resilient underground facility that removes the adverse effects of natural disasters and is strategically located away from fault lines and flood zones.
Harness the mine’s natural 52 degree temperatures and heat absorbing limestone walls, floor, and ceiling to run an energy-efficient operation.
The Underground location provides the natural advantages of low ambient temperature and geothermal cooling, which delivers a designed Power Utilization Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.08.
Along with a constant 52 degree temperature, the data center is cooled with the help of an underground lake.
Hot air dissipated from the data center is cooled with geothermal properties and then redistributed via ceiling ducts.
Energy efficient design features no PDUs, CRAC/CRAH units in the ‘white space’ which creates 30% more availability for servers and other data center assets.
The Iron Mountain Underground facility offers both turnkey (pre-built) data center space and custom data center solutions.
We offer engineering and design services that employ our 35-plus years of experience to ensure that the environment meets your unique needs.
An innovative suite of data center services are available at all Iron Mountain data center locations to provide installation and on-going technical support services.
