T5 Data Centers™ has signed the County of Los Angeles as the newest tenant for the company's T5@LA customizable data center. The County will be migrating its data center operations from its own facility to T5@LA to take advantage of the infrastructure support and cost savings offered by T5's wholesale data center, as well as the potential for future expansion.
The LA County Board of Supervisors directed an assessment of options to replace the existing outdated data center with either a build, buy, or lease solution. After performing a cost analysis, the County determined that leasing a wholesale data center facility would offer greater flexibility and prove more cost effective than upgrading its current data center operation. After an extensive search, Los Angeles County selected T5@LA because of its secure environment, redundant power systems, and seismic reinforcement, as well as its strategic location. The T5@LA facility also fulfilled the County's immediate operational needs, providing a ready-to-occupy location customizable to their needs with energy and water efficient environment control systems.
"Winning the County of Los Angeles as a customer validates T5's market advantage — our wholesale data centers are more robust and cost-effective than maintaining your own data center facilities," said Aaron Wangenheim, chief operating officer for T5 Data Centers. "This latest contract also demonstrates that our T5@LA facility is in the right location with the right capabilities for customers throughout the Los Angeles market who need mission-critical computing support."
