T5 Data Centers™ has announced that three of the four independent data centers housed in its T5@Dallas facility have already been leased, indicating the high demand for reliable, robust data centers in the Dallas market. To meet data center demand, T5 has commenced interior build-out of the 70,000 sq ft Texas4 facility within the T5@Dallas wholesale data center campus. Demand also will drive further expansion with future phases.
What makes the T5@Dallas campus unique is its “data center-in-a-data center” design. The T5@Dallas facility currently houses four independent data centers named Texas1, Texas2, Texas3, and Texas4, with plans for additional expansion. There is no shared infrastructure between the four data centers, so T5 clients have complete control of their data environment, including redundant, dedicated primary utility feeds, and dedicated electrical and mechanical plants for each data center.
Texas4 is housed inside the T5@Dallas wholesale data center facility, a purpose-built, 315,000-sq-ft building on a 20-acre site located in Legacy Business Park in Plano, TX. Texas4 is the remaining data center, available soon with 40,000 sq ft of raised floor space and 4.5 MW of critical power available, expandable to 6.0 MW. The entire T5@Dallas facility is LEED® Silver Certified and built to withstand winds up to 221 miles per hour. It has dual primary power feeds connected to two separate substations, and is concurrently maintainable (mechanically and electrically) and fault tolerant (electrically).
“Today’s high density data center users are searching for robust and secure environments within purpose built facilities. Our T5@Dallas data center is a “battleship” of a facility and given our Plano Legacy location, we believe we have the best data center facility in the best location for business in Texas”, said Martin Peck, general manager of T5@Dallas.
