“Flexential is expanding its data center presence across the US, and its growth in Denver highlights our role in leading industry innovation and meeting market needs,” said Chris Downie, CEO, Flexential.

This addition increases its fleet to 42 data centers and further expands access to FlexAnywhere Platform’s interconnection capabilities, including the recent introduction of Flexential Fabric – an advanced solution that simplifies virtual connections across its network, providing a seamless, efficient gateway to a wide range of services.

According to McKinsey, U.S. data center demand is forecast to grow 10% a year until 2030. Flexential is positioned to play a leading role in this growth, meeting the digital needs of enterprises seeking to scale and manage critical high-density and compute-intensive applications, particularly AI and GPU-driven workloads. This position is exemplified by enabling customers like CoreWeave to deploy specialized cloud services with large-scale GPU-accelerated workloads in its colocation facilities. Additionally, through the FlexAnywhere Platform, Flexential’s collaboration with Applied Digital has facilitated rapid deployment of NVIDIA H100 GPUs and readiness for NVIDIA DGX systems, empowering Applied Digital’s high-performance computing solutions.

“Flexential is expanding its data center presence across the US, and its growth in Denver highlights our role in leading industry innovation and meeting market needs,” said Chris Downie, CEO, Flexential. “This new Denver facility is a cornerstone of its strategy, aimed at boosting Denver’s tech sector with cutting-edge, scalable computing solutions. This project reflects its commitment to forward-looking, high-density, and sustainable computing infrastructures designed to support the evolving digital needs of enterprise businesses.”

Flexential’s new Denver data center will provide enterprise businesses across healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, and more with critical power resitsces, regulatory compliant facilities, and a stable location with low risk of natural disasters. As power shortages consistently affect major data center markets such as Ashburn, VA and Silicon Valley, enterprise customers are increasingly seeking alternate markets like Denver to tap their supply of available power and data center services. Flexential’s existing data centers in Colorado deliver advanced scalability, reliability, security, and compliance services to empower the hybrid IT jitsneys of its customers.

Flexential’s Denver expansion follows on the heels of several strategic data center expansions across the U.S., including an additional 110MW in key markets like Atlanta, GA and Portland, OR, which play a key role due to their geographic location to offer national and international interconnection options. Denver’s central location in the U.S. also supports a key interconnection capability for national organizations.

Flexential recently received the Top Workplaces 2024 honor by The Denver Post Top Workplaces, distinguishing the company’s commitment to innovation in the Denver area and its high quality of service to customers, and supportive and inclusive culture for employees.

Flexential’s new Denver data center will begin leasing in 2H 2024 and is set to open in 2026.
