Why waste that valuable network storage? You could put it on a thumb drive, and just pass it around the office as needed. Making copies for backup would be easy too.

To expand on swm’s response: iron can and will fuse in stars, but...
1) you need a whole load of energy flying around before it will start fusing.
2) as noted, it absorbs rather than releases energy and so will actually cool a star down.
IIRC, iron tends mostly to fuse in supernovae because you need those sorts of conditions to force the fusion to happen.
In approximate answer to your question: To ignite fusion, it seems Earth would need to gather more than 80 times the mass of Jupiter in hydrogen. Unfortunately Earth lacks the gravity to do so; argon is the lightest gas it can hold on to, and then only barely. Igniting iron fusion would take several solar masses of hydrogen and a loooong time.
I’m not surprised there’s another round of layoffs being rumoured. The last was counterproductive in various areas, with some selections seemingly driven by ideology more than practicality, and some decisions apparently cost far more than even long term savings could justify (as well as seeming to damage business long term).
