Iron Mountain Expands Partnership with Virtustream

BOSTON, Sept. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Iron Mountain Incorporated® (NYSE: IRM), the global leader for storage and information management services, today announced that Virtustream, the enterprise-class cloud company and a Dell Technologies business, has chosen to expand its cloud footprint by locating in Iron Mountain's Northern Virginia data center (or "VA-1"). Virtustream cited security, compliance and scalability as reasons for the selection.

Virtustream is the enterprise-class cloud company that is trusted by organizations worldwide to migrate and run their mission-critical applications in the cloud. For enterprises, service providers and government agencies, Virtustream® xStream® Management Platform and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) meets the security, compliance, performance, efficiency and consumption-based billing requirements of complex production applications in the cloud – whether private, public or hybrid.

"We've long had great respect for Iron Mountain and throughout the vetting process, it was clear that their Virginia data center campus was an ideal environment for our regulated customer base and sustained platform growth projections," said Mike Evans, SVP Customer Care and Cloud Operations, Virtustream.

Iron Mountain's long-term growth plan for its Northern Virginia campus includes four data centers and 60 megawatts of long-term capacity. Iron Mountain's data center compliance matched Virtustream's FISMA High, HIPAA, PCI-DSS Level 1, SOC 2 Type II, SOC 3 and ISO 27001 capabilities and ISO 50001, which is projected by the end of 2017.

"The strong, diversified pre-leasing activityin Northern Virginia and confidence from hyperscale cloud providers such as Virtustream speaks to the advantages of Iron Mountain's strategic data center investment, offering and go-to-market plans in the nation's largest data center market," said Mark Kidd, Iron Mountain senior vice president and general manager of Iron Mountain Data Centers. "We look forward to supporting Virtustream and its growing customer base for many years to come."

Virtustream also plays an important part in Iron Mountain's service offerings. Last year, the two companies announced that Iron Mountain had selected Virtustream xStream and Virtustream Viewtrust software to orchestrate, automate and secure cloud storage services for Iron Mountain's cloud-based service offerings, now the Iron Cloud platform.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
