T5 Data Centers Opens Doors to T5@Dallas III Data Center

T5 Data Centers Completes Construction of New Concurrently Maintainable, 156,000 Square Foot, Greenfield Purpose-Built Facility with 10.75 MW Capacity.

Dallas, TX, USA — T5 Data Centers™ (http://www.t5datacenters.com), innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments, today announced the opening of a new data center, T5@Dallas III on its Plano data center campus. The new greenfield, purpose-built data center is tenant ready and offers the same robust construction as the balance of the T5@Dallas campus, including a dedicated data center support team. The T5@Dallas campus is located in Plano’s Legacy Business Park.

The T5@Dallas III facility is a LEED Silver certified, concurrently maintainable data center with 94,400 square feet of available data hall space and 10.75 megawatts of critical power. T5@Dallas III features a highly efficient chilled water plant for a low annualized PUE, and it offers both N+1 and 2N MEP configurations for guaranteed uptime. The new facility also will be maintained by its own dedicated T5 Facilities Management (T5FM) team.

The building itself is designed to withstand winds in excess of 221 mph (EF-5 tornado equivalent), and there are multiple redundant power feeds from two local substations. In addition, the T5@Dallas III facility can take advantage of the multiple carriers and fiber connections already serving the T5@Dallas data center campus.

“Dallas is our most active data center market so it only made sense to bolster our T5@Dallas campus with an additional enterprise grade facility,” said Aaron Wangenheim, Chief Operating Officer for T5 Data Centers. “Our new T5@Dallas III data center is a smaller version of the adjoining T5@Dallas I data center with the same robust construction, design redundancy, and physical, electrical, and mechanical infrastructure. Dallas is a growing market for Fortune 500 companies and we want all of our tenants to be confident that when they sign with T5 Data Centers, they get a state-of-the-art facility with top-tier support.”

The original T5@Dallas facility is a 311,000 square foot/21.0 megawatt building with four isolated data centers under one roof. T5@Dallas is one of six T5 data centers nationwide to receive the Uptime Institute’s Management & Operations (M&O) Stamp of Approval. The M&O assessment evaluates every aspect of data center operations including planning, coordination, management, staffing and organization, training, operating conditions, and maintenance.

T5 Data Centers New State-of-the-Art T5@LA Facility in El Segundo Is Now Server-Ready

New Purpose-Built Data Center Now Available for Lease for Business-Critical Enterprise Customers, First Lease Signed with L.A. Infrastructure Provider.

Los Angeles, CA, USA (November 29, 2012) — T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable, and highly reliable computing support for any enterprise, today announced the completion and commissioning of its new T5@LA data center at 444 North Nash Street, El Segundo, California. The T5 team has successfully commissioned the first 3.7-megawatts (3.7 MWs) of what will ultimately be 16.65 MWs of critical power, so the new data center is ready for mission-critical operations for lease to enterprise customers.

In addition, T5 announced the signing of the first lease at T5@LA. The Los Angeles based critical infrastructure agency is the first enterprise customer and will occupy a custom-built data hall. They selected T5@LA because of the facility’s seismic rating, dedicated power supply, and redundant systems that ensure uninterrupted service. They also selected T5 Data Centers because of the company’s reputation for reliability and data security. Occupancy will be in 2013.

The new T5@LA data center is a purpose-built, 205,000-square-foot building on a 6.1 acre site. Designed as a high-quality, fully equipped wholesale data center, the facility is customizable to customer needs and features 120,000 square feet of raised floor. The building is built from structurally enhanced steel and has been designed to withstand earthquakes with a seismic importance factor of 1.5. T5@LA also has a dedicated, on-site power substation to ensure high reliability of electricity at a reduced “wholesale” cost.

“Los Angeles has been an underserved market for server-ready data center services” said Pete Marin, President of T5. “T5@LA is the first purpose built wholesale data center in the Los Angeles basin. We’re seeing great demand for our high quality and super-efficient design.”

The new T5@LA data center was designed for large enterprise customers seeking a customizable, “always-on” computing environment. The facility takes advantage of cool coastal air to help chill the data halls via an indirect evaporative process that uses approximately half the energy of traditional data center designs. T5 maintains round-the-clock engineering and support staff, as well as redundant systems to deliver the best service possible as well as peace of mind. The company already supports a number of Fortune 200 companies at its other data center facilities.

“We are very excited to welcome our first tenant to T5@LA,” said Aaron Wangenheim Executive Vice President of T5, responsible for marketing and leasing. “T5@LA was chosen by this discerning customer because of our ability to deliver the right solution and the right efficiencies. Their critical applications required the most resilient data center possible, and we’re excited to welcome them to T5@LA.”

T5 Expands to Oregon with New Data Center Project in Hillsboro

New Construction to Begin on the State’s First, Purpose-built, Wholesale Data Center Scheduled for Completion in 2013.

Portland, OR, USA (October 11, 2012) — Atlanta-based T5 Data Centers, a leading data center owner and operator supporting enterprise and wholesale data users, today announced its expansion into the Pacific Northwest with a new project, T5@Portland. T5 has acquired a 15-acre parcel of land in Hillsboro, Oregon, and is finalizing design for construction of a 200,000 square-foot, LEED-certified data center facility. Once completed, the project will be the only purpose-built, ground-up wholesale data center in the state of Oregon.

Construction of the new T5@Portland facility is scheduled to begin in early 2013, with customer ready data halls delivered in early fall 2013. The data center design is optimized to take into account the cool climate, thereby reducing the amount of power and water used to operate the facility. The center will include high-efficiency, indirect evaporative cooling with custom air handlers.

“The Pacific Northwest is a well-established destination for enterprise users looking for safe, efficient data center solutions” said Pete Marin, President of T5. “Hillsboro offers the best combination of low taxes, low power costs, a reliable infrastructure and easy access for out-of-region companies. We anticipate the T5@Portland data center to be a showcase for responsible development, and will demonstrate to customers that we can design and engineer to embrace energy efficiencies while continuing to offer our clients the resiliency and uptime they require.”

As a purpose-built building, the data center also will have a hardened building shell that exceeds all seismic requirements, multiple generators for power redundancy, as well as redundant power feeds from the utility substation. Ultimately, the data center will deliver 12.25 MW of critical power with a power density up to 200 watts-per-square-foot. The T5@Portland data center will also include an on-site office and support space, as well as 24/7 monitoring of operations. Fiber connectivity is available from a dozen independent service providers, and there are three transpacific landing stations situated in Hillsboro.

T5 Data Centers is aggressively expanding its operations to meet growing customer demand. In addition to T5@Portland, T5 offers wholesale and/or enterprise data center space in the Dallas, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Charlotte markets.
