BOSTON -- May 8, 2014

Markley Group, universally recognized as a world class mission-critical
telecommunications and data center operator, announced today that Iron
Mountain, the storage and information management company, has joined the
company’s Boston Internet Exchange (BOSIX).

By bringing together Markley’s data center customers and domestic and
international network providers, BOSIX has become New England’s primary hub
for creating and developing IP peering partner relationships. BOSIX ensures
its members have optimized network traffic and can meet the increasing demands
of mobile applications and web videos.

Iron Mountain selected Markley’s BOSIX for its ability to lower overall IP
transit costs and allow efficient exchange of traffic. Iron Mountain
participants include every major industry and size, including more than 95
percent of the Fortune 1000.

“When we started our search for a high-speed, reliable interconnection
provider, there were few that stood up to our company’s standards,” said Dan
Golding, vice president, data center operations for Iron Mountain. “Upon
finding BOSIX, we knew it was a fit. Markley’s equipment and practices ensure
our customers will have reliable access to their most vital information, with
both high speed and low latency.”

With nearly 100 distinct on-net network providers and housing at Markley’s
mission-critical One Summer Street facility, BOSIX delivers virtually
unlimited bandwidth to participants and service providers through shared
connections and high-performance regional exchanges. Through the Boston
Internet Exchange, Iron Mountain can optimize network performance, reduce
latency and lower costs by eliminating network hops and bypassing intermediary
networks.

“Markley is thrilled to welcome Iron Mountain to the Boston Internet
Exchange,” said Jeffery D. Markley, CEO of Markley Group. “With our facility’s
top-of-the-line, high-density connections and the support of the region’s top
network providers, we can continue to deliver the premier internet exchange to
a growing list of prominent participants.”
