Denver is among several secondary data center markets that has seen a substantial increase in activity over the last few years. Denver offers data center professionals a highly reliable location with a very low risk of natural disasters. The city’s high elevation also creates a cooler climate, allowing data center operators to take advantage of free cooling almost year-round. Denver also benefits from its central location, with flight times under two hours from most Central and West Coast cities. This makes Denver ideal for a disaster recovery location, or for a primary colocation solution.
Denver is home to 30 colocation data centers, from 15+ providers like CoreSite, Cyxtera, Digital Realty, Equinix, and Flexential. Data center development has occurred in two primary areas. While some data center growth has occurred downtown, with providers like CoreSite, Flexential, and DataBank present, the majority of activity is focused on the southern suburb of Centennial. Flexential is the most heavily invested in the Denver market, operating nearly 60 MW across four data centers in the area. Multiple enterprise users have chosen to locate their data centers in Denver, including Lockheed Martin, Time Warner, Nissan, and Honda.
