H5 Data Centers, a U.S. provider of colocation and wholesale data center services, has announced the construction of a cutting-edge data center in Ashburn, Virginia. The three-story building will cover 255,000 square feet and have a capacity of 42 MW. The company is responding to the growing demand for large-scale data centers in key marketplaces.
The new data center, located on Beaumeade Circle, will be eligible for a sales and use tax exemption in Virginia. Pre-leasing is currently underway, and the first phase of the Ashburn development will be available in the third quarter of 2024.
According to H5 Data Centers CEO Josh Simms, the new data center will help the company’s clients meet the stringent security and reliability requirements of data centers. Northern Virginia is one of the largest data center markets in the world, but the market’s explosive growth has made it difficult for technology and cloud businesses to obtain the necessary flexibility in capacity, according to Mr. Simms. The new data center would be ideal for cloud service providers, multimedia and technology companies, and Fortune 500 organizations.
Data Centers in Arizona and Seattle
H5 Data Centers manages over 3 million square feet of data center space, making it one of the largest data center providers in the United States. The company plans, constructs, and develops data center solutions that are adaptable and expandable to meet the infrastructure and peripheral needs of its clients. H5 Data Centers operates 22 data centers in 20 countries.
The announcement of the Ashburn Development follows H5 Data Centers’ recent acquisition of a data center in Chandler, Arizona, from NextFort Ventures. The facility covers 66,000 square feet and has a capacity of 8 MW. H5 Data Centers has also expanded its footprint in the Pacific Northwest, acquiring a data center in Seattle from Intergate.Columbia. The 240,000 square foot facility has a capacity of 18 MW.
H5 Data Centers’ investment in the Ashburn development would mark the beginning of a busy year of development, according to Simms. The company’s expanding portfolio and commitment to adaptable and expandable data center solutions would position it to meet the growing demand for critical infrastructure worldwide.
