US-based colocation provider H5 Data Centers, has announced the expansion of its edge data center located at 100 Taylor Street in downtown San Antonio, Texas.

With this expansion, H5 adds 5,000 square foot colocation space to its Tier III facility in the San Antonio data center campus. This project further expands H5’s Texas footprint which currently features a total of about 85,000 square feet of data center space with connection to more than 25 network carriers.

“International carriers, regional Internet Service Providers and enterprises continue to add to the growing San Antonio interconnection ecosystem. Given San Antonio’s strategic position along key long haul fiber routes and location in South Texas, our data center is well positioned for continued IT infrastructure services growth,” said Josh Simms, founder and CEO of H5 Data Centers.

Following this announcement, FiberLight established its Point of Presence (PoP) at the San Antonio data center to support a network connecting Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston, as well as Corpus Christi, Laredo and McAllen.

“We’re thrilled to be working alongside H5 Data Centers to bring enhanced connectivity options to the Texas region, and we look forward to expanding this collaboration to ensure a growing number of customers can access the robust data center and high-capacity fiber capabilities they rely on,” said Simon Cooper, Director of Business Development for Data Center Partnerships at FiberLight.

“As part of our Texas Express Routes, H5 Data Centers is integral to FiberLight enabling network operators, enterprises, wireless operators, managed service providers and international carriers across Texas to quickly and cost-effectively deploy connectivity to commercial, data center, cloud on-ramp and IP peering sites. All sites on these routes, including 100 Taylor St., are available on a 25-day installation interval or shorter to ensure fast turn-ups.”

H5 currently operates data centers in Albuquerque, Ashburn, Atlanta, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Phoenix, Quincy, San Antonio, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, and Seattle.
