BOSTON — Iron Mountain Inc. expanded its Phoenix data center campus with the grand opening of its second enterprise-class data center facility, AZP-2.
The first phase of capacity at AZP-2 provides four megawatts of concurrently maintainable power capacity with the ability to serve both multi-tenant enterprise retail colocation as well as hyper-scale requirements, given the scalable and flexible design of the facility. The three-story purpose-built facility will span more than 530,000 gross square feet and deliver 48 MW of total IT capacity at full build out, with campus connectivity to the existing 45 MW operating in AZP-1 and AZS-1 in Scottsdale, Arizona, leveraging the network density of the existing ecosystem.
“We are excited to deliver our next phase of expansion capacity in Phoenix, one of the largest data center markets in the United States,” said Mark Kidd, executive vice president and general manager, Data Centers, Iron Mountain. “The addition of AZP-2 further strengthens our global data center platform and increases our ability to meet the demand from customers in the Phoenix market looking for a lower-cost, highly resilient data center solution in the Western U.S.”
Including land held for future development, the 40-acre Phoenix campus should support more than 100 MW of IT load when fully developed. The highly secure Phoenix 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.
The Phoenix data center campus is hyper-scale ready, hybrid-IT enabled, carrier neutral, and powered by 100% renewable energy
