Iron Mountain Incorporated announced it has signed a six-megawatt data center pre-lease with a U.S.-based Fortune 100 customer in Phoenix, at its new AZP-2 data center. The lease is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2021. The data center solution met all of the customers’ requirements, including scalable capacity, network proximity to other deployments, and a design that provided flexibility and reliability.
AZP-2 is a hyperscale-ready data center powered by 100 percent renewable energy. The three-story purpose-built facility will span more than 530KSF and deliver 48MW of total IT capacity at full build out, with campus connectivity to the existing 47MW operating at AZP-1 in Phoenix and AZS-1 in Scottsdale, leveraging the network density of the existing ecosystem.
Including land held for future development, the 40-acre Phoenix campus should support more than 100MW of IT load when fully developed. The campus offers Iron Mountain Data Center customers access to reliable and energy efficient data center capacity in one of the lowest risk U.S. metros for natural disasters.
Iron Mountain’s global data center platform consists of 15 operational facilities across 13 markets and three continents.
