H5's Denver data center is a purpose-built facility, initially constructed by United Airlines and most recently owned by the global distribution system manager Galileo (a division of Travelport), a leading global travel commerce platform. The data center campus sits on more than 12 acres in the Denver Tech Center and is comprised of four buildings totaling nearly 300,000 square feet. H5’s Denver data center campus actually supports two independent Tier III, concurrently maintainable data centers.
Since acquiring the data center, H5 has invested nearly $20 million in mechanical and electrical upgrades, energy-efficiency improvements and physical data center build-outs. The Denver H5 team is comprised of nearly 20 people who operate one of Colorado’s best data centers and have an average tenure of over 15 years at the site. No other data center comes close to this average tenure. As a result, the team has succeeded to maintain 100% uptime at the Denver data center for nearly 15 years.
Denver’s only wholesale data center accommodates the mission critical needs of multiple Fortune 500 companies and offers a unique combination of size, physical security, certifications, Fortune 500 customer base, access to carriers, and uptime track record.Unique aspects of the Denver data center campus include:
Xcel Energy provides the Denver data center with over 17.5 MWs of reliable and affordable power (average annual costs per kWh of less than $0.075) from diverse substations. H5 in turn manages two independent concurrently maintainable Tier III data centers on the campus, each with separate mechanical and electrical systems. All systems are meticulously maintained by H5’s 24x7 on-site Denver engineering team.
H5 manages an on-site 400 kW rooftop solar power array which adds additional renewable power to the existing Xcel Energy energy mix but also reduces the peak demand quantity (which reduces overall energy costs).Electrical and mechanical highlights include:
