Press Release: IX Reach Upgrades its Iron Mountain Data Centre PoP in Scottsdale
IX Reach now offers its full suite of cloud and connectivity services to one of the largest data centre ecosystems in the mountain states.
Manchester, UK – 12th February 2018: IX Reach, the leading provider of SDN cloud connectivity, remote peering and Ethernet services to more than 170 global locations is proud to announce it has upgraded its network Point of Presence (“PoP”) at the Scottsdale data centre of Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), the global leader in storage and information management services. The changes enable IX Reach to offer its full suite of cloud and connectivity services to Iron Mountain’s Phoenix metro-connected campus.
IX Reach has been offering cloud and connectivity solutions at Iron Mountain’s Scottsdale data centre via cross connects since 2016. Strong customer demand and rapid sales growth underpinned IX Reach’s decision to install its own hardware in the Arizona data centre, bringing the location on-net as a fully-enabled IX Reach location. Iron Mountain Scottsdale is part of a three-data centre Iron Mountain connected campus in Phoenix that features more than one million square feet of colocation capacity and hundreds of customers and networks.
“At Iron Mountain, we are focused on delivering the best colocation experience possible for our 1,200-plus data center customers worldwide,” commented Rick Crutchley, vice president of Iron Mountain data centers, North America. “This includes providing efficient access to the clouds, carriers, and IT services our customers need to thrive in a multi-cloud world. Having IX Reach in our Scottsdale data center is an important part of this commitment as it delivers more network services options and increases the efficiency of customer hybrid IT implementations.”
“We are thrilled to have added the exciting and fast-growing city of Scottsdale as a fully on-net enabled location to our global network – not just because it gives our customers another option for connectivity, but it also further strengthens our relationship with Iron Mountain,” said Simon Vye, CEO at IX Reach. “Iron Mountain is one of the top global providers of data centres and colocation and has been protecting important assets for more than 225,000 customers since 1951. Our companies share a vision to foster long-term customer relationships through integrity, reliability and trust.”
The addition of Iron Mountain’s Scottsdale data centre means one of the largest data centre ecosystems in the mountain states has now been added to IX Reach’s growing global network. The PoP upgrades at Iron Mountain’s Scottsdale data centre allow the company’s Phoenix colocation customers unlimited and direct access to all IX Reach SDN Cloud connectivity, remote peering and transport connectivity services via a single cross connect.
The continued investment by IX Reach in its core infrastructure shows its dedication to meeting the global challenges of increased data use driven by the growth of video streaming, content delivery, IoT, big data and AI technology. The upgraded Scottsdale location is one of 170+ IX Reach network PoPs worldwide.
