Digital transformation is boosting the importance of IT infrastructure for businesses of all sizes,
in all markets. Denver is a prime example of a “second tier” digital hub driven by demand from local businesses with growing requirements for data center space. The Mile High City has one of the fastest-growing technology ecosystems in the United States and is home to numerous colocation providers, carriers, technology companies, IT services providers, and regional/HQ in-house data centers.
And with the proliferation of IoT and increased connectivity comes more demand for increased density incommunications infrastructure, specifically in regional business markets like Denver.
Denver is a major U.S. fiber hub, acting as a central relay point that connects West Coast backbones and end users to major Midwest and East Coast markets. After establishing an early reputation as a prime location for data backup, the Denver data center market has emerged as a regional market for retail colocation, supporting both enterprise and service provider customers. In recent years, data center companies have begun building larger data centers in the Denver region, and offering wholesale space.
