H5 Data Centers has expanded its 1.5 million sq ft footprint by acquiring the Cleveland Technology Center in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.
The national colocation and wholesale data centre provider,
which has assets in nine US markets, has established its first
data centre in Ohio with the addition of the 332,215 sq ft 1625
Rockwell Avenue carrier hotel to its portfolio.
"We look forward to expanding into the Cleveland market with
this acquisition," said Josh Simms, founder and CEO of H5 Data
Centers. "The acquisition represents the type of high-quality
carrier infrastructure and enterprise data centres we endeavour
to own, operate and grow."
The Tier III Cleveland colocation facility, which is one of
the top interconnection points in the greater Midwest and has
significant long haul fibre termination, adds to H5's growing
national portfolio of data centres in Ashburn, Atlanta,
Charlotte, Denver, Phoenix, San Jose, San Luis Obispo and
