Don Davis Director of Technology, Iron Mountain

Business Challenge

With some of the world’s most demanding customers, Iron Mountain’s network requirements are stringent. Supporting its quickly expanding data center services business required a cloud-ready foundation that could scale easily but also meet the privacy and compliance requirements of its clientele.

Technology Solution

Juniper cloud-grade network solutions are at work in several Iron Mountain sites. MX Series Edge Routers form an IP/MPLS backbone and data center core, over which full-mesh Layer 2 VPNs partition customer networks for privacy. EX Series Switches connect over a 128-Gbps backplane, and SRX Series Firewalls securely connect customer sites and Iron Mountain offices.

Business Results

Iron Mountain now has the flexibility of expanding its multitenant services where it sees fit and has found it easier to detect intrusions, enforce policies, and proactively mitigate threats. Having the Junos operating system power all the equipment makes managing the network consistent and easier for operations staff.

"The ability to scale efficiently and effectively is very important, and Juniper supports our goals of delivering performance, reliability, and scalability."
Mark Jobson Director of Product Marketing for Data Centers, Iron Mountain
