H5 Data Centers has recently announced that it is upgrading its 300,000 square foot Denver data center. The wholesale data center provider and colocation company is attempting to increase the power-use efficiency of the campus and strengthen its infrastructure.
The company's efforts to improve the efficiency of its operations started in January. Earlier this year, H5 installed LED light bulbs, a building management software system and a high-efficiency insulated roof. Further upgrades will include sub-floor baffling cold air containment, new UPS units, a cooling tower water treatment system and variable sped cylindrical fans on computer room air-handling units.
"We're working on reducing our PUE and making as modern a data center as possible," said H5 COO David Dunn.
The Denver colocation campus has two independent data centers with over 17 megawatts of power supporting the facility, including the centers and office space.
The company has a series of facilities across the U.S. outside of this Colorado facility, including a California data center, a North Carolina data center and a Georgia data center.
