A selection of data centers is changing hands. H5 Data Centers announced yesterday the acquisition of seven facilities from vXchnge, boosting its edge infrastructure reach substantially.
The facilities being acquired are vXchnge’s data centers in Nashville, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland, Secaucus, St. Louis, and St. Paul. The total square footage involved is 250,000 square feet with 150 unique customers as tenants. Combined with its existing footprint, the deal gives H5 a presence in 20 markets.
After going on a buying spree a few years ago, vXchnge has been selling off those assets steadily lately. Over the past year and a half, Cologix bought their Minneapolis and Santa Clara facilities and Element Critical bought their Austin facility. With this sale of 7 facilities, my math says they have just one left in Raleigh Durham — although perhaps someone else has their eye on that one.
