H5 Data Centers announces expansion of its Atlanta edge data centre


H5 Data Centers, a national colocation and wholesale data centre provider, has announced a 250-cabinet expansion at its Atlanta colocation facility located at 345 Courtland Street NE, in downtown Atlanta.

The expansion of the 110,000ftdata centre adds needed infrastructure capacity to the carrier hotel facility after H5 Data Centers leased 7,000ftof powered shell space in 2017.

The new data centre space will help bolster the size and resiliency of the Atlanta interconnection and edge data centre landscape.”
