BOSTON, MA: Iron Mountain (IRM), the storage and information management firm comes up with its new IRM Cloud Archive solution, which is cost effective, and scalable repository for organizations needing to protect and preserve data that can be retained for short or long term compliance. IRM Cloud Archive is designed to scale as the amount of data increases. Cloud-based organizations leverage the solution that is in need of offsite, pay-as-you-use archival storage with near-infinite scalability, where data remains intact and easily accessible over long run.
