H5 Data Centers has announced an expansion of its downtown Atlanta data centre located at 345 Courtland St. NE.

The expansion will include build-out of more than 20,000 square feet and total up to 3 Megawatts of concurrently maintainable, Tier III data centre infrastructure, in part to support a major Internet and Cable TV service provider.

Josh Simms, founder and CEO of H5 Data Centers, said: “Atlanta is one of the fastest growing data center and interconnection markets. 345 Courtland hosts numerous long haul fibre cables and provides a key network access alternative to 56 Marietta and 180 Peachtree. H5 Data Centers’ new data centre space will help support Atlanta’s peering and interconnection community and edge data centre requirements.”

H5’s Atlanta data centre includes 110,000 square feet of hosting floor serving communications networks, content companies and cloud service providers.

The expansion comes days after the unveiling of the acquisition of 925 Dalton Avenue, a 107,000 square-foot data centre in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Originally developed by PNC Bank, the purpose-built enterprise data centre is a Tier III, concurrently maintainable site located near downtown Cincinnati and less than 15 minutes to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

The new Cincinnati property compliments H5 Data Centers’ existing edge data centre and carrier hotel in Cincinnati located nearby at 360 Gest St.

In addition, in the last few weeks DE-CIX and H5 Data Centers have partnered to aid companies expanding or relocating their data centre and colocation services.

Combined, H5 Data Centers’ 325 Hudson data centre and DE-CIX New York’s IX offer access to content, cloud, carrier, application, and service provider networks.

H5 Data Centers operates today data centres in Albuquerque, Ashburn, Atlanta, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Phoenix, Quincy, San Antonio, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, and Seattle.
