Iron Mountain to open Northern Virginia storage facility
Iron Mountain, a storage and information management services provider, will be opening a new, state-of-the-art federal records center in Sterling, Va., on Oct. 13. With close to 500,000 cubic feet of space, the center is specifically designed to meet federal agencies’ needs for temporary records storage.
Offsite storage can help agencies take advantage of features and services they can’t easily provide on their own, such as customizable storage and ‘build to suit’ compliant facilities. It can also help them meet requirements of the Office of Management and Budget’s Reduce the Footprint memorandum, which obliges agencies to trim the total square footage of their domestic office and warehouse inventory.
“A well-managed offsite records management program creates more efficiency for federal agencies both in terms of cost and compliance, while ensuring information is secure and protected,” said Ernest W. Cloutier, Iron Mountain’s executive vice president for U.S. federal, security and legal.
The new facility’s storage space is available for lease as a self-managed option or as a fully managed service, and can be customized to fit specific requirements, Iron Mountain said.
