H5 Data Centers is to expand its Atlanta data center.

The company this week announced it was to expand its presence at the 345 Courtland St. NE carrier hotel; the expansion will include build-out of more than 20,000 square feet (1,900 sqm) and up to 3MW.

"Atlanta is one of the fastest-growing data center and interconnection markets,” said Josh Simms, founder and CEO of H5 Data Centers. “345 Courtland hosts numerous long haul fiber cables and provides a key network access alternative to 56 Marietta and 180 Peachtree. H5 Data Centers’ new data center space will help support Atlanta’s peering and interconnection community and Edge data center requirements.”

H5’s last expansion to 345 Courtland was in 2018, when the company announced it was adding 22,000 sq ft to the site.

2021 has seen H5 acquire a data center in Cincinnati, Ohio. San Francisco real estate investor DivcoWest has acquired the 325 Hudson carrier hotel in New York; the company said it planned to maintain an interconnection & colocation space managed by H5 Data Centers.
