Mesh isn't currently supported on AC APs. It should be coming soon. Once it does I would look at an AP-274 with high gain directional for backhaul.

Sustaining high throughput 802.11ac with mesh  would require very close (less than 9  meters) proximity between transmit and receiver to sustain the highest rates, just like it does with clients.  It is even more difficult trying to implementing this outdoors due to the increased interference.  I would not even think about doing wireless between datacenters...

For only 100m you might consider talking to a cabling service about fiber. That's a pretty short run, and you could sustain much better throughout.
