H5 Data Centres has announced the acquisition of 925 Dalton Avenue, a 107,000 square-foot data centre in Cincinnati, Ohio.

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

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

"Ohio is a rapidly-growing data centre market," said Josh Simms (pictured), founder and CEO of H5 Data Centers.

"H5 Data Centers will leverage our existing edge data centre and carrier hotel location with the space, power and cooling capacity of 925 Dalton to deliver an exceptional colocation product to the Cincinnati market. We welcome the opportunity to continue to grow Cincinnati’s interconnection community and serve the mission-critical needs of the region’s leading enterprises."

925 Dalton is a secure Cincinnati data centre with gated parking, a secure multi-bay loading dock and dual authentication access controls. In addition, the property has access to several thousand square feet of office space and boasts access to the area’s leading metro fibre networks and communications providers.

Specifically, it boasts 2MWs of newly installed UPS-backed power and it features three existing 2.25MW generators and dual electrical feeds.
