T5 Data Centers™ has announced the signing of a new lease with a New York-based financial services company for space in T5’s purpose-built T5@Atlanta data center in Alpharetta, GA. T5 was chosen over other competing providers because of its robust and redundant data center design, and its reputation for excellence in data center operations, and maintaining critical systems uptime.
T5@Atlanta is a purpose-built, Tier III, server-ready data center with multiple data suite sizes and densities within its secure, bunkered facility. Each data hall suite is separated by slab-to-deck, fire-rated walls for autonomous operation, and security of regulated personal financial and/or health information. T5@Atlanta boasts over 100,000 sq ft under one roof; nearly 55,000 of that with raised floor. It also features an installed critical IT power load of 6,000 kW, expandable to 9,000 kW. T5@Atlanta is LEED® Silver certified, offers tenants significant tax incentives, operational control of their whitespace with guaranteed power and cooling availability within the robust utility, and fiber-rich Alpharetta Technology corridor.
“T5 continues to attract discerning customers such as financial services companies and healthcare firms that need to maintain sensitive data, and address security as part of their own compliance requirements,” said Tim Bright, senior vice president, of T5 Data Centers. “They come to T5 because of our reputation for reliable service, operational stability across our national portfolio, our willingness to customize our security, and power redundancy and resiliency. With backgrounds in Enterprise Data Center development, operations, and consulting, T5 approaches data center design differently by designing the kind of data center our clients would build themselves, even before we start customization.”
One of the unique features of T5@Atlanta is its power redundancy. T5@Atlanta is fed by five separate substations; two of them on Georgia Power’s “Hi-Reli” system for mission-critical users. The 25-kilovolt feeds from the substations are encased in concrete with an automatic transfer switch on site, delivering flawless reliability. Three additional substations can also feed the facility if necessary, although the primary and secondary circuits have had a historical reliability in excess of Tier IV requirements.
