"Iron Mountain is the world's leading provider of backup and archiving software and Storage-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions. With the launch of the Australian data center, we can offer these services directly to businesses and through a network of regional channel partners," said Ian Hollow, Iron Mountain's Managing Director, Australasia. "This data center not only improves performance and allows local shipment of large amounts of data, but also provides our customers peace of mind that their data is stored and protected within Australian borders."

Iron Mountain's comprehensive distributed data protection solutions help thousands of enterprises and tens of thousands of smaller companies automatically and reliably back up and recover server and PC data. The Connected Backup for PC solution virtually eliminates the risk of PC data loss by automatically backing up desktop and laptop computers as users perform their normal tasks.
