Colocation Provider and Data Center Operator H5 Data Centers Enters into Agreement with IaaS Provider LeaseWeb
December 26, 2017
Colocation provider and data center operator H5 Data Centers has entered into a ‘wholesale’ agreement with Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider LeaseWeb USA, Inc. (LeaseWeb). H5 Data Centers, which has headquarters in Greenwood Village, Colorado, United States, was established in 2010. The company is “one of the leading private data center owner and operators in the United States” and operates 2 million square feet of data center space with centers in Ashburn, Atlanta, Charlotte, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Denver, Phoenix, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, and Seattle. The agreement will see LeaseWeb expand to an H5 Data Center data center in Phoenix, Arizona, United States.
LeaseWeb, which has global headquarters in Amsterdam, Netherlands, offers a “comprehensive range of global cloud hosting solutions”. Over the last two decades it has developed a 17,500-strong customer base, which includes SMBs, mid-market companies and Internet and IT businesses. The company currently manages 80,000 servers and offers ‘hybrid ready’ hosting solutions that include dedicated servers, private and public clouds, colocation, and content delivery network (CDN) and security options. It operates 17 data centers globally. While H5 Data Centers will continue to own its Phoenix facilities, LeaseWeb will offer its entire range of enterprise solutions through the facility. The agreement will enhance LeaseWeb’s growth in the US market and extend product offerings for H5 Data Centers’ Phoenix customers.
“The expansion and partnership with LeaseWeb is a win-win,” explained H5 Data Centers’ CEO, Josh Simms. “LeaseWeb can offer enterprises a full suite of retail colocation and hybrid IT cloud solutions, while H5 Data Centers can continue to innovate and deliver world-class wholesale data center solutions. We look forward to working with this globally-renown IT services partner.”
“LeaseWeb USA and H5 Data Centers come together with this Phoenix transaction at a similar scale in the U.S. with a shared focus on delivering excellent service and hybrid cloud technology located as close to our customers as possible,” added LeaseWeb USA’s CEO, Lex Boost. “We see great joint opportunities in the Phoenix market, with the potential for an expanded partnership to come across our national footprints.”
