Iron Mountain opens first Asia data centre in Singapore

Iron Mountain's data centre in Singapore

Iron Mountain announced yesterday it has expanded its global data center platform with the opening of an enterprise-class data center facility in Serangoon, Singapore. The Singapore location, SIN-1, is Iron Mountain’s first data center in Asia, providing customers access to 1.5 megawatts of capacity with the ability to deliver an incremental 3 megawatts in future phases.

This is the former 153,000 sq-ft Credit Suisse data center, acquired two years ago under Iron Mountain’s $100 million deal to acquire two Credit Suisse data centers in London and Singapore. Credit Suisse also signed a long-term lease with Iron Mountain to maintain their existing data center operations under this agreement.

The Singapore facility is designed to support the data center needs of many Fortune 1,000 customers who need to align compliance and IT asset protection programs. With 5.5 megawatts of capacity across four 10,000 square foot data halls at full build-out, SIN-1 provides access to a number of hybrid IT services, including cloud backup, migration and disaster recovery, as well as a variety of flexible wholesale and retail colocation deployment options through private suites, secure cages and individual cabinets.

“With our new SIN-1 data center, Iron Mountain continues its commitment to building world-class data center offerings for global organizations,” said Mark Kidd, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Data Centers at Iron Mountain. “We are excited to move into the next phase of growth for our digital strategy with the expansion of our global data center platform, building on our momentum in Phoenix and Western Europe. SIN-1 has been carefully designed to extend this progress and meet the rigorous needs of global customers, solidifying our global footprint with operations in this critical and fast-growing market.”

“Iron Mountain’s SIN-1 data center, our first in APAC, reaffirms our commitment to the growing information management and compliance needs of our customers in the region and globally,” said Michael Goh, Senior Director and GM for Asia at Iron Mountain. “As we continue to work with both global enterprise and local companies and experience growing demand for our world-class digital offerings, we’re proud to expand our global footprint and offer flexible, scalable options, ranging from maximum availability and security to diverse power sources, reliability and compliance, to customers in highly regulated industries.”

Iron Mountain’s global data center platform consists of 14 operational facilities across 13 markets.
