"Whether it's a global insurance company or an oil and gas conglomerate, our customers depend on us to help make their physical and digital information useful and accessible while keeping it safe. This partnership with Google Cloud brings two industry-leading players together to deliver a new category of solutions for organizations looking to utilize their data's value, while closely managing their security and privacy."

"Customers in data-intensive industries like energy, financial services, healthcare and many others can create significant business value from the union of data with machine learning and content analytics."

To sum it up, Meaney says the new subscription service will enable users to quickly know what they have, enhance intelligence with Google Cloud Platform’s AI and machine learning capabilities, and drive value.

"We've heard from many companies about the challenges of trying to manage data and utilize information for insights," says IDC content technologies and document workflow research vice president Holly Muscolino.

"They have too much of it to analyze, and when they try to, it's highly complex and resource-intensive to do on their own. The combined expertise, technology and customer relationships that Iron Mountain and Google Cloud bring to the table is well positioned to unlock this potential."
