IRON MOUNTAIN

The Players

Iron Mountain is a trusted global business dedicated to storing, protecting and managing critical business data, documents and assets. Its worldwide data centers help IT executives in highly regulated industries accelerate digital transformation with hybrid IT solutions that combine cloud data management, backup and disaster recovery and data center collocation.

The Automated Logic Strategic Accounts team provides support for global projects and has been the standard building management system (BMS) contractor for the Iron Mountain portfolio since inception. They helped Iron Mountain standardize their processes across all their data centers, and developed their basis of design. As a result, Iron Mountain now has a trusted partner that can provide a single, scalable, repeatable BMS solution for all of their data centers around the globe - allowing them to get their data centers up and running faster.

The Solution

From a product perspective, Automated Logic’s sensors, controllers and WebCTRL® BMS provide seamless integration to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), and electrical power monitoring systems (EPMS) throughout Iron Mountain’s data centers worldwide. Facilities staff have a “single pane of glass” for centralized monitoring, trending, and alarming for all systems, leading to operational efficiencies. Automated Logic’s WebCTRL system also includes a redundant design, helping to provide maximum uptime and reliable asset performance, while fostering energy efficiency and sustainability throughout their data center portfolio.

However, beyond Automated Logic’s product solutions lie an extremely successful relationship between their Strategic Accounts team and Iron Mountain. With Strategic Account’s dedicated ‘Critical Systems’ vertical segment business model, data center experts, and reputation in the industry, Iron Mountain has been able to realize and seamlessly integrate standardization across all of its data centers globally.
