A ‘leading hyperscale enterprise software provider' has signed a 2.4MW data center lease with Iron Mountain.

The unnamed company will deploy at Iron Mountain’s WPA-1 data center in Boyers, Pennsylvania, and has existing deployments at other Iron Mountain data centers.

The lease is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2022, and has a term of ten years.

Located north of Pittsburgh, WPA-1 is a 200-acre facility set 220 feet underground. The facility offers more than 300,000 square feet of data center space with a total potential IT capacity of more than 15MW and leverages water from an underground lake that provides geothermal cooling.

“As public and private sector organizations face increasing privacy, security and environmental regulations for their data center needs, our data centers in Western Pennsylvania and Northern Virginia are in high demand as the ideal option for connecting and protecting critical IT infrastructure and applications,” said Rick Crutchley, VP & GM North America at Iron Mountain Data Centers.

Iron Mountain said a ‘leading hyperscaler’ had recently signed a 6MW lease at its data center campus in Manassas, Virginia. That lease is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2021 and has a term of five years.

“We are pleased to welcome a key new customer to the Iron Mountain ecosystem and we are honored that our existing customer chose to continue to expand with us,” added Crutchley.

In April the company signed two leases totaling 6MW of capacity at its AZP-2 data center in Phoenix, and last year a ‘large US Federal Agency’ leased a total of 5MW across a number of sites.
