H5 Data Centers has announced the planned extension of the IX-Denver peering exchange to its Denver data center campus. IX-Denver is a non-profit, neutral Internet exchange that provides access to more than 40 Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs). A member-driven and community-oriented exchange, the IX-Denver platform enables networks to simplify network management, increase route access, and reduce the costs of cross connections and IP transit.

H5 Data Centers owns a 300,000 sq-ft data center campus in the Denver Tech Center where it has recently invested more than $25 million on upgrades and expansions. The extension of IX-Denver significantly increases the number of potential networks that can access the exchange.

"Denver is a rapidly-growing interconnection market," said Josh Simms, CEO of H5 Data Centers. "The partnership with IX-Denver will enable more networks in Colorado to access a rich peering platform at port speeds of up to 100 Gbps from our two independent Tier III data centers. We look forward to supporting the broader IX community."

  • 300,000 sq-ft data center campus
