T5 Data Centers Signs Hospital Tenant for T5@LA Facility

Los Angeles Medical Network Selects T5@LA for Seismic Safety and Power Resilience to Ensure Continuous Uptime for Patient-critical Data Systems.

Los Angeles, CA, USA — T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale computing environments for enterprise companies, today announced that a large regional hospital has signed as the newest tenant for its T5@LA data center. The hospital plans to migrate all data operations into T5@LA to take advantage of the purpose-built data center, seismic-hardened infrastructure, and the skilled on-site support of the T5 Facilities Management team.

Throughout the stringent selection process, several requirements needed to be met and verified by the new hospital tenant. At the top of the list, T5@LA had to be compliant with the California Seismic Safety Act, which requires all hospitals remain operational in the event of an earthquake. The deadline for compliance is January 1, 2020.

Other T5@LA attributes supporting the hospital tenant’s decision are the dedicated on-site substation allowing for greater electrical resiliency, T5’s world class Facilities Management & Operations as verified by the Uptime Institute, and robust security to ensure HIPAA compliance. Through the numerous connectivity carriers, various network technologies, and fiber density available within T5@LA, the hospital tenant was able to establish a multi-faceted network strategy. This included Metro Dark Fiber rings, direct Internet access, and cloud direct-connect capabilities.

“Over the last decade we have built our reputation by delivering uninterrupted data center services, which is essential for patient-critical compute systems,” said Aaron Wangenheim, Chief Operating Officer of T5 Data Centers. “We are seeing more hospitals looking to outsource data center operations to comply with the Seismic Safety Act. T5 remains confident that other discerning CIOs and data center operations managers will come to T5 seeking highly reliable, versatile, purpose-built data center services.”

T5 Data Centers Finalizes Purchase of 40-acre Site for T5@Atlanta II Data Center Campus

Property Acquisition Paves the Way for Construction of New 130,000-square-foot, Custom-built Data Center in Douglas County.

Atlanta, GA, USA — T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale computing environments for enterprise companies, today announced that the company has finalized the purchase of a new 40-acre property in Douglas County as the location for T5@Atlanta II, the company’s second data center in the Atlanta region. The land acquisition marks the first step in the construction of a new 130,000-square-foot data center, purpose-built to meet the needs of hyperscale enterprise customers.

When it is completed, the T5@Atlanta II data center will feature 10 MW of critical power load and 66,667 square feet of white floor space. The campus will benefit from redundant service from two nearby power substations, and the robust fiber telecommunications infrastructure that already services the region. The data center will be fault tolerant and engineered to withstand 185 mile-per-hour winds. T5 also plans to construct T5@Atlanta II as a LEED-certified building with air cooled mechanical chillers and a 1.32 annualized PUE.

The T5@Atlanta II campus also has sufficient space to accommodate a second data center building to be constructed at some point in the future, bringing the total capacity to 20+ MW.

The new T5@Atlanta II campus in Douglas County complements T5@Atlanta, the 105,000-square-foot flagship data center that T5 built in Alpharetta, Georgia, in 2011. This is the twelfth customizable data center to be built by T5 Data Centers, and the second data center in the Atlanta market. Atlanta also serves as the home of T5 Data Centers’ corporate headquarters.

“Atlanta has proven itself to be a growing market for enterprise-class data center users,” said Pete Marin, CEO of T5 Data Centers. “These discerning companies continue to be attracted to Atlanta by the inexpensive and reliable power, easy access, a talented workforce and competitive tax incentives. T5 was one of the earlier data center providers to commit to the Atlanta region and we recognized that now is an ideal time to strengthen that commitment with the construction of T5@Atlanta II.”

As with all T5 facilities, T5@Atlanta II will provide services in full compliance with SOC2, PCI, HIPAA and other data security regulations and audit controls. Tenants also will be able to take advantage of T5 Facilities Management (T5FM), which serves as an extension to customers’ IT staff, offering facilities operations and management, remote hands, and IT consulting services. T5FM is responsible for T5 Data Centers’ record of 100 percent uptime across its portfolio.

T5 Data Centers Enters European Market with Addition of T5@Ireland Data Center Campus

New Purpose-Built Data Center in Ireland Offers Same Robust Infrastructure as T5’s U.S. Facilities Just in Time for New Data Sovereignty Laws.

ATLANTA and CORK, Ireland — T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale computing environments for enterprise companies, has entered the European data center market with today’s announcement of a new joint venture with JCD Group of Cork, Ireland to develop the T5@Ireland data center campus. This is T5’s first data center outside the United States and will look to take advantage of the coming political changes in the European Union (Brexit and associated EU data sovereignty laws), and telecom and power infrastructure advantages in Cork to serve a growing need for companies seeking new data centers serving European and U.S. customers.

The new T5@Ireland campus is a 32.5-acre, 46 MW dedicated data center campus with full planning permission for two enterprise facilities of 7 MW each, and a cloud targeted facility of 32 MW. The site is carrier rich and will have direct access to Ireland’s five largest domestic fiber carriers, as well as subsea cable connectivity to the United States, United Kingdom and Europe via GTT Express (lowest latency between EU and US), GTT North & South, (secondary routes between US, UK and Europe), Aquacomm’s AEC-1 Cable (Ireland to NYC). Building I will be a 7 MW, 84,000 square foot facility and is due for completion in Q1, 2019, which will coincide with the landing of the Ireland France Subsea Cable (IFC-1), the first cable to directly link Ireland to mainland Europe. Building II will be a 97,000-square-foot, 7 MW data center, and Building III will be a 323,000-square-foot, 32 MW data center. As with all T5 facilities, each data center can be customized to accommodate any enterprise-grade or cloud computing deployment.

In addition to new EU data sovereignty laws which could drive data center traffic from the UK following Brexit, construction of T5@Ireland comes at an opportune time relative to power availability and telecom connectivity within Ireland. Dublin has historically been the preferred data hub of Ireland, but the region is experiencing a restriction on data center growth due to lack of adequate power. T5@Ireland is fed by 60 MW of power from an adjacent dual fed substation, and can deliver this power within expedited delivery deployments of new facilities. These and other market factors are driving more data center operations to strategic locations such as Cork.

“Now is the perfect time for T5 to build T5@Ireland as our springboard into Europe,” said Pete Marin, CEO & President of T5 Data Centers. “Cork is a growing technology hub with a great talent pool and robust infrastructure. We expect T5@Ireland to attract European customers seeking a new location for their enterprise operations, and for U.S. companies seeking a European data center presence. This is the next phase of T5’s global expansion strategy and shows our commitment to serve our customers wherever they need us.”

T5@Ireland Building I is a Class A data center designed to meet LEED Silver requirements. It features block-redundant 1.75 MW electrical lineups and can accommodate densities from 5 to 25 KW per rack. The Cork location also offers ideal climate conditions for indirect, free air cooling, and the building is equipped with Liebert DSE cooling for modular growth.

As with all T5 data centers, T5@Ireland will be managed by the T5 Facilities Management (T5FM) team. T5FM is responsible for T5 Data Centers’ record of 100 percent uptime, and serves as an extension to our customers’ IT staff, offering facilities operations and management, remote hands, and IT consulting services.

Momentum Continues for T5 Data Centers with Addition of S&P 500 Client in Chicago

Information Technology Company Chooses T5@Chicago To Accommodate Rapid Growth.

Elk Grove Village, IL, USA — T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale computing environments for enterprise companies, today announced another pre-lease within Phase 2 of the T5@Chicago build-out. This is the second pre-lease with an enterprise company for T5 Data Centers in Chicago. Pre-leasing is challenging in the data center industry and occurs more often with hyperscale providers than it does with the enterprise. However, T5 was able to deliver a customized solution for this client and meet an accelerated time frame for a “rack-ready” data hall.

This S&P 500 Client needed immediate access to a Tier III data center in the Chicagoland area, but more importantly, that data center had to be both customizable and meet the stringent security and administrative criteria of highly regulated companies. T5 has extensive experience building custom data center solutions for customers in financial services, telecommunications, health care, and other regulated markets across the country.

“The complexity of these projects requires a cohesive team that communicates effectively and pays close attention to detail. The level of transparency we demonstrate to our customers provides them with a level of comfort and control, as if our operations staff was simply an extension of their team,” said David Horowitz, VP of Sales and Marketing for T5 Data Centers.

As customer IT requirements continue to evolve with the adoption of cloud computing, it becomes more important for providers to offer flexible solutions that align with corporate objectives. Horowitz adds, “This was an incredibly fast transaction that incorporated several important factors including a creative growth structure and a flexible ramp schedule. While the transaction structure remains instrumental in selecting a data center provider, our customers find tremendous value in the processes and procedures our T5 Facility Management teams have in place to ensure 100 percent uptime and to deliver exceptional customer service.”

T5@Chicago is a highly secured, 208,000 square-foot, Tier III data center located in Elk Grove Village. This LEED Silver certified data center was acquired by T5 Data Centers in 2016 and has been operating since its inception through T5FM, which provides best-in-class, award-winning facilities management services. T5 is currently in Phase 2 of its T5@Chicago build-out, adding a new secure data hall with an additional 2 mW capacity.

T5@Chicago is the company’s ninth U.S. data center and meets the resilient, high-quality characteristics consistent across T5’s portfolio.

The hospital network is migrating its existing data center operations to the T5@Chicago custom-built facility to take advantage of more efficient systems and to accommodate capacity demand for future growth. Several of the data centers in the Chicagoland market are not purpose built facilities and have difficulty meeting emerging enterprise computing requirements. T5 Data Centers prides itself on providing state-of-the-art, custom-built data centers with on-site systems management from T5 Facilities Management (T5FM). For T5’s new hospital network tenant, T5@Chicago offers a robust infrastructure that allows them to consolidate operations and to maximize control of their infrastructure. The T5@Chicago infrastructure will also comply with HIPAA and other stringent regulations.

“Chicago is becoming one of T5’s hottest markets,” said David Horowitz, VP of Sales and Marketing for T5 Data Centers. “We are experiencing more demand from the corporate enterprise users who are requiring highly secure, scalable purpose built data centers. We are able to provide this latest Chicago tenant a customizable build-out and a scalable approach to manage future growth. Allowing our customers to control their infrastructure and have visibility into their operations like it was their own internal data center is a major differentiator that enterprise customers appreciate. Our T5 Facilities Management team is simply an extension of our customers’ teams.”

The Chicagoland area continues to experience an increase in demand from local and regional companies, along with cloud providers who are trying to keep pace with the adoption of hybrid cloud solutions.

T5@Chicago offers customers a customized data center solution that provides secure private data halls in a concurrently maintainable and fault tolerant design.

“The demand from corporate enterprise seeking data center space in Chicago continues to grow in a market that has very limited supply. As vacancy rates hover around 5 percent, we are in a unique position to deliver a high-quality data center solution that will provide customers complete control of their infrastructure, as if it were their own mission critical environment,” said David Horowitz, VP of Sales and Marketing for T5 Data Centers. “Network and power continue to be the life blood of a data center. We originally chose this location because of the robust fiber network and resilient utility infrastructure in Elk Grove Village. Beyond the initial data center, our adjacent site can accommodate another 170,000-square-foot,16mW facility to support future growth.”

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.

The Award was presented at the Uptime Institute Symposium in recognition of T5FM’s role in earning the M&O Stamp of Approval across the T5 data center portfolio.

Under Mike’s leadership, all eligible T5 data centers received the Uptime Institute’s Management & Operations (M&O) Stamp of Approval including T5@Atlanta, T5@Charlotte II, T5@Dallas, T5@LA, and T5@Portland. T5’s Tier III certified data center, T5@Charlotte VII, will undergo Uptime’s Operational Sustainability assessment later this year.

The Uptime Institute M&O Stamp of Approval provides a means to conduct risk analysis and validates the rigor and effectiveness of a data center operations team by an industry recognized third party expert in designing, constructing, and operating data centers.

T5’s data center portfolio received some of the highest M&O scores ever awarded by Uptime. The consistent high scores are attributed to T5FM’s team and proprietary operational methodology, the Four Pillars of T5FM: Safety, Training, Process/Procedures, and Customer Communication.

“We are delighted to see Mike receive the Uptime Leadership award. The award is testament to Mike and his team’s commitment to providing outstanding customer service,” said Pete Marin, President and CEO of T5 Data Centers. “Mike has been instrumental in the success of T5FM, not only providing outstanding service to T5’s customers but to their growing list of third party data center customers. The T5FM commitment to excellence is part of T5’s DNA and is reflected in the quality of data center operations.”

“I am honored to be singled out by the Uptime Institute for the Leadership Award,” said Casey. “Getting such high marks for the M&O Stamp of Approval validates our operational philosophy, our attention to detail, our pride in ownership, and our quest for continual process improvement. The M&O Stamp of Approval allows T5FM to set even higher benchmarks of performance for all our customers.”
