BOSTON, MA – December 16, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Information Technology (IT) departments at colleges and universities are tasked with supporting the needs of thousands of students and often hundreds of departments, programs and services, making the school’s disaster recovery and business continuity strategy a top priority to ensure seamless service and network availability. Iron Mountain® Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), the storage and information management company, announced it has signed a multi-year colocation agreement with Suffolk University, a leading private institution located in the heart of downtown Boston serving nearly 9,000 students.
Because both the production and disaster recovery data center deployments were in one facility on campus, Suffolk University’s IT organization decided to revisit their strategy early in 2014. They needed an off-premise solution for disaster recovery and decided that data center colocation was the best option. This solution provided Suffolk University with geographical diversity in a purpose-built data center with 24×7 operations and security to safeguard their infrastructure.
“We’re proud to be local and industry leaders in terms of how we’re approaching business continuity and disaster recovery. Too often, these mission critical functions are put on the backburner, but we’ve never been more aware of our need for IT strategies and resources to address them,” said Tom Lynch, chief information officer, Suffolk University. “After evaluating our situation, we knew we needed to rethink our disaster recovery approach. It didn’t make sense to have production and disaster recovery capabilities both located on our campus, and in Iron Mountain, we found a trusted, remote colocation partner with deep experience, which was important to our team.”
“Our data centers are designed to help organizations like Suffolk University to implement a sound business continuity strategy with the additional benefit of supporting networking services,” said Mark Kidd, senior vice president and general manager, data centers, Iron Mountain. “We look forward to supporting Suffolk University’s data center for their disaster recovery purposes.”
Iron Mountain’s data center is Tier III- certified for both design and construction and holds a LEED Gold certification, providing a resilient and energy-efficient environment. True to Iron Mountain’s dedication to security and compliance, the data center also helps organizations adhere to stringent industry requirements on the storage and management of information, especially in highly regulated industries such as healthcare, finance and education. Complementing the secure and compliant data center colocation, Iron Mountain provides our customers with a suite of comprehensive services for the management of their data center colocation, including total network services, tape handling, infrastructure management, compliant IT asset tracking, disposition and more.
