The Woman-Owned Company Will Serve as a Preferred Provider of Retail Colocation and Public Sector Cloud Services at Iron Mountain’s FISMA High Facility
HILLSBORO, OR – September 24, 2018 – Opus Interactive, a leading provider of cloud hosting services, announces the selection of the Northern Virginia data center campus of Iron Mountain Incorporated® (NYSE: IRM), the global leader for storage and information management services, to expand Opus Interactive’s footprint to the East Coast to provide enhanced custom cloud solutions to federal agencies and enterprises. Additionally, Opus becomes a preferred provider for cloud services, Infrastructure-as-a-Service and retail colocation services at Iron Mountain’s data center, which is located in Manassas, VA.
Opus Interactive’s East Coast expansion addresses the needs of customers seeking to improve latency and increase geographic redundancy. In addition, the Iron Mountain data center enables Opus to continue to expand services to government customers currently in the midst of digital transformation driven by data center optimization initiatives and the Modernizing Government Technology Act. Iron Mountain’s first 165,000-square-foot data center facility at its Manassas, VA campus is a FISMA High-Rated and Tier-III certified facility, enabling federal agencies to comply with government infrastructure efficiency initiatives.
“We’re excited for the opportunity in Virginia,” comments Shannon Hulbert, CEO, Opus Interactive. “After touring multiple facilities throughout the Northern Virginia market, we selected Iron Mountain because of their long-standing experience serving the public sector, DCOI-compliant campus, and reputation for impeccable service delivery to over 225,000 organizations around the world. As a preferred provider at the Manassas facility, OPUS provides differentiated cloud services and retail colocation to federal agencies and their partners thanks to more than 20 years of successful IT services delivery. We’re confident that the combination of our service offering, along with Iron Mountain’s facility, will enable government agencies to more easily fulfill the mandates required of them.”
“We are proud to support Opus Interactive’ s public sector clients. Iron Mountain is well-positioned to help government agencies and government contractors with their digital transformation and the data center optimization initiative,” commented Michael J. Lewis, vice president and general manager of Iron Mountain Federal Solutions. “We have established long-term relationships with every cabinet-level federal agency and a successful track record. Iron Mountain’s data center business provides our federal customers with the ability to protect critical IT assets, while enabling complex IT modernization, DCOI compliance, and reduction of their carbon footprint.”
Northern Virginia is an optimal East Coast data center location for the Oregon-based company. Opus operates its cloud and colocation solutions in three key markets across the nation: Dallas, Texas; Northern Virginia, which carries 70 percent of the world’s internet traffic; and Hillsboro, Oregon, which is commonly referred to as the “Ashburn” of the West Coast. Opus’ East and West Coast locations now provide greater connectivity options with access to an experienced workforce and nearby submarine cable systems connecting North America to Europe and Asia, respectively. Further fortifying the strength of Opus’ cloud and connectivity service offering is access to diverse energy grids across its physical locations.
Iron Mountain Data Centers serves customers worldwide from 12 colocation facilities with a total footprint of more than 2.5 million gross square feet in four countries. The company’s Manassas data center, like all Iron Mountain data centers, offers a compliance framework to serve a wide range of regulated organizations, including SOC 2 Type II, SOC 3, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, ISO 27001, and ISO 50001, along with NIST SP 800-53/FISMA High and support for DCOI and Executive Order 13693 governing renewable energy and energy efficiency for government data centers.
