Iron Mountain data centre named to InfoWorld Green 15

Iron Mountain, an information management services company, has announced that one of its underground data centres has been named to IDG's InfoWorld Green 15, an annual ranking of the most innovative green IT projects. The Green 15 recognizes organizations from around the world that have embraced green technology to drive projects and develop products aimed at boosting energy efficiency, trimming waste, and reducing or eliminating the use or the production of harmful substances.

 

Average data centres require enormous energy to power and cool stacks of computer servers that must run year round. Seeking to cut this energy consumption for the massive volumes of customer data it manages, Iron Mountain conceived and built "Room 48," a highly efficient data centre located 200 feet underground in a former limestone mine in Western Pennsylvania.
