Fortune 500 Company Expands in the Denver Tech Center
DENVER — H5 Data Centers, a national colocation and wholesale data center provider, has announced plans to expand its Denver data center, located at 5350 S. Valentia Way in the Denver Tech Center. The data center expansion includes the build-out of a 5,000-square-foot, private raised floor suite, which has been pre-leased by an existing Fortune 500 customer.
“We continue to focus on deepening our relationships with our growing wholesale customer base,” said Josh Simms, founder and CEO of H5 Data Centers. “After completing the major renovation and expansion of our Denver Tech Center data center two years ago, we have more than doubled our enterprise customer base and worked to expand the capacities of most existing customers. H5 Data Centers will make available additional mechanical and electrical infrastructure as our customer ecosystem expands further.”
H5 Data Centers’ Denver data center is a purpose-built facility, initially constructed by United Airlines and most recently owned by the global distribution system manager Galileo (a division of Travelport), a leading global travel commerce platform. The data center campus sits on more than 12 acres in the Denver Tech Center and is comprised of four buildings totaling nearly 300,000 square feet. H5 Data Centers’ Denver data center campus supports two independent Tier III, concurrently maintainable data centers.
H5 Data Centers has invested nearly $20 million in mechanical and electrical upgrades, energy-efficiency improvements and physical data center build-outs. The Denver team is comprised of nearly 20 people who operate one of Colorado’s best data centers and have an average tenure of more than 15 years at the site. No other data center comes close to this average tenure. As a result, the team has succeeded to maintain 100 percent uptime at the Denver data center for nearly 15 years.
“I have enjoyed a front row seat to witnessing H5 Data Centers light up an impressive amount of data center space nationally for its customers time and time again,” said Jon DeRidder, CMO of Enabled Energy. “H5 Data Centers understands what it means to move at the speed of business and Enabled Energy remains dedicated to supporting fast and efficient infrastructure expansions like these.”
