US colocation and wholesale data centre provider H5 Data Centers has acquired an 85,000 sq ft edge data centre and carrier hotel in downtown San Antonio.

The 100 Taylor Street acquisition, which will offer colocation space with access to more than 25 communications carriers, represents the company’s first investment in Texas and increases H5 Data Centers’ portfolio to 13 data centres.

San Antonio not only serves as a key point of interconnection between long haul routes to the West, Houston to the East, Dallas to the North, and Laredo and McAllen to the South, but it also is one of the safest locations for a data centre from a risk management perspective.

"Our portfolio of edge data centres continues to grow across the United States," said Josh Simms, founder and CEO of H5 Data Centers.

"H5 Data Centers will continue to build upon the existing interconnection ecosystem at 100 Taylor with a planned build of more than 100 colocation cabinets immediately. We welcome the opportunity to serve a combination of international communications carriers, content distribution networks and cloud services providers.”

In August, H5 Data Centers announced that it had expanded its Denver data centre by 5,000 sq ft, pre-leasing the space to an existing Fortune 500 customer.
