DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--H5 Data Centers, a national colocation and wholesale data center provider, today announced it has acquired from Intuit Inc. a 240,000 square-foot, purpose-built data center in Quincy, Washington. The acquisition expands H5 Data Centers’ national portfolio to 12 data centers and compliments its 300,000 square-foot data center in downtown Seattle. Quincy, Washington is one of the country’s largest wholesale data center markets because of its access to low-cost, renewable energy, Washington-state sales tax incentives, and reduced exposure to natural disaster risks.
Intuit Inc.’s former purpose-built data center is move-in ready and will feature a 24x7 team of facility engineers, remote hands personnel and security professionals. The on-site data center team boasts an average existing tenure of more than seven years per person. Available immediately, H5 Data Centers can offer high-density deployments in an environment that has a track record of 100% uptime since initial commissioning.
"H5 Data Centers is experiencing strong demand for wholesale data center services across the United States and the Quincy data center represents an incredible growth opportunity for us," said Josh Simms, founder and CEO of H5 Data Centers. "We welcome a world-class team of data center professionals to our company as we look to immediately expand the critical capacity of the data center to serve the mission-critical needs of leading global enterprises.”
Quincy Data Center Highlights:
- 63-acre data center campus with an existing 240,000 square-foot building
- Over 40 mWs of turn-key colocation space at full build-out
- Approx. $0.03/kWh average annual cost of power
- Access to 100% renewable hydro power
- 100% Washington state sales and use tax abatement on data center equipment
- High-density deployments of up to 500 Watts per square foot
"Central Washington has the right combination of power pricing, sales tax incentives, low latency to major peering centers and renewable energy mix to appeal to a very large spectrum of global data center users," continued Simms.
