Iron Mountain Chooses IBM Software to Power Its Digital Record Center for Images

ARMONK, NY--(Marketwire - March 14, 2008) - IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM) has selected IBM software to power its new Digital Record Center™ for Images, which provides organizations with hosted storage and quick access to scanned images, PDFs and other digital files.

Iron Mountain, the global leader in information protection and storage services, is using IBM Content Manager OnDemand, IBM's Web Interface for Content Management (IBM WEBi), IBM DB2 data server, and IBM WebSphere Application Server to enable and support the information management requirements of its Digital Record Center.

"The Digital Record Center for Images marries leading information management software from IBM with our Storage-as-a-Service expertise.
