According to a recent release, EdgeMicro, an edge co-location company, has secured $5 million in investments, reportedly to accelerate its expansion. DH Capital, LLC, an investment banking firm serving companies in the internet infrastructure, communications, and software sectors, served as EdgeMicro’s financial advisor.

This capital reportedly will be used to launch several additional micro data centers. The new sites will be announced in the coming weeks, the locations finalized via collaborative effort between EdgeMicro and its expanding base of core clients. The additional capital also helps create and deliver expanding solutions to simplify how organizations deploy successfully at the edge.

“EdgeMicro continues to demonstrate its ability to scale with velocity,” said Mike Hagan, Founder & CEO, EdgeMicro. “Our team remains highly focused to deliver colocation solutions with the speed, efficiency and reliability companies need to win at the edge.”
