Denver, CO - May 29, 2015
H5 Data Centers, a national colocation and wholesale data center provider, today announced Handy Networks, a global provider of custom hosting and cloud solutions, has selected its 300,000 square-foot Denver data center campus for its most recent colocation expansion. The phase 1 footprint is comprised of approximately 100 cabinets with additional expansion space as required. Handy selected H5 on account of the company's flexibility, 15-year 100% uptime track record, abundant expansion capacity, and H5's responsiveness enabling expedited timelines and milestones to be hit.
"H5 is excited to welcome Handy Networks to our Denver data center ecosystem," said Josh Simms, chief executive officer at H5 Data Centers. "Handy Networks is growing at an impressive rate and we look forward to delivering the reliable, responsive wholesale data center services necessary to ensure maximum customer satisfaction."
Handy Networks' need for increased colocation capacity came as a result of its existing data center in downtown Denver hitting maximum occupancy. After an in-depth "build-versus-buy" analysis and thorough vetting of Denver wholesale data center providers, Handy Networks identified H5's Denver data center campus as an ideal solution for its next colocation expansion.
"Demand for our hosting and cloud solutions continues to be strong," stated Jay Sudowski, co-founder and CTO of Handy Networks. "Having a data center partner like H5 that works at our speed and offers a 100%-uptime, maximum-security offering has been critical to capitalizing on the unprecedented market opportunity. We look forward to growing our footprint and business relationship with H5 over the years to come."
