T5 Data Centers, which provides secure, customisable, hyperscale computing environments for enterprise companies, has finalised the purchase of a 40-acre site in Douglas County, US, for establishing T5@Atlanta II, the company’s second data centre in the Atlanta region.
The 130,000ft² data centre will be purpose-built to meet the needs of hyperscale enterprise customers.
T5@Atlanta II data centre will feature 10MW of critical power load and 66,667ft² of white floor space.
The campus will benefit from redundant service from two power substations nearby, and the fibre telecommunications infrastructure already available in the region.
The data centre will be fault-tolerant and engineered to withstand 185mph winds.
T5 also plans to construct T5@Atlanta II as an LEED-certified building with air-cooled mechanical chillers and a 1.32 annualised PUE.
The T5@Atlanta II campus will also have ample space for a second data centre building to be constructed in the future, bringing the total capacity to more than 20MW.
It will complement T5@Atlanta, a 105,000ft² flagship data centre established by T5 in Alpharetta, Georgia, in 2011.
T5@Atlanta II will be the 12th customisable data centre to be established by T5 Data Centres, and the second in the Atlanta market.
T5 Data Centers’ corporate headquarters is also located in Atlanta.
T5 Data Centers CEO Pete Marin said: “Atlanta has proven itself to be a growing market for enterprise-class data centre users. 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 centre providers to commit to the Atlanta region and we recognised that now is an ideal time to strengthen that commitment with the construction of T5@Atlanta II.”
T5@Atlanta II will provide services in compliance with SOC2, PCI, HIPAA and other data security regulations and audit controls.
Tenants can also 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.
