Flexential announces FlexAnywhere Platform expansion with new data centre in Denver

The next-generation facility marks Flexential’s fifth and largest data centre in Denver, Colorado.

Flexential, a leading provider of secure and flexible data centre solutions, has announced an expansion of its FlexAnywhere Platform with plans to develop its fifth data centre and colocation facility in the Denver area.

By expanding its data centre footprint in the region, Flexential aims to meet surging demand for data centre inventory and connectivity across Denver.

The new Denver facility exemplifies Flexential’s latest advancements in data centre design, offering high-density colocation in a structure purpose-built to meet current sustainability and efficiency requirements of its customers. With this expansion, its total footprint and capacity in Denver will be 759,000 square feet and 49.4MW.

This new facility, located in Parker, CO, boasts a capacity of 22.5MW powered by CORE Electric Cooperative and spans 249,000 square feet on over 17 acres, making it not only Flexential’s largest in the Denver area but also a hub of technology and innovation.

The addition increases its fleet to 42 data centres 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 the network, providing a seamless, efficient gateway to a wide range of services.

According to McKinsey, US data centre 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 specialised 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 centre presence across the nation, and our 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 our strategy, aimed at boosting Denver’s tech sector with cutting-edge, scalable computing solutions. This project reflects our 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 centre will provide enterprise businesses across healthcare, financial services, manufacturing and more with critical power resources, regulatory compliant facilities and a stable location with low risk of natural disasters.

As power shortages consistently affect major data centre 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 centre services. Flexential’s existing data centres in Colorado deliver advanced scalability, reliability, security and compliance services to empower the hybrid IT journeys of its customers.

Flexential’s Denver expansion follows on the heels of several strategic data centre expansions across the US, 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 US also supports a key interconnection capability for national organisations.
