T5 Announces New Site Operations Manager in Ireland to Support the Company’s European Facility Management and Data Center Expansion 

ATLANTA, April 6, 2022 – T5 Data Centers (T5), the telecommunications industry’s only full lifecycle data center partner has officially established a presence in the European Union and has named Dave Ryan as the company’s Site Operations Manager in Ireland. In this role, Mr. Ryan will oversee data center project development in the UK and EU from construction to commissioning and lead the onsite operations team upon project completion. In addition, Mr. Ryan will act as a technical liaison for ongoing international opportunities.

“Dave is our first of many team members in Ireland. He joined T5 to oversee initial development of our Cork asset and network and bring market awareness within the Irish/EU community,” comments Aaron Wangenheim, T5’s Chief Operating Officer. “As T5’s presence grows, Dave will serve as a Site Director, overseeing our Cork data center facility and providing regional operational leadership.”

With a diverse background in data center technologies from the Irish Management Institute and Technological University Dublin, Mr. Ryan brings a unique skill set to the role, including data center facilities management experience with Microsoft and Amazon, where his focus on quality and environmental, health and safety were instrumental to successful site operations and performance. 

“I am thrilled to be part of the T5 team here in Ireland. It’s a career highlight to oversee T5’s facility development in Cork, and I look forward to helping grow the company’s presence here and in Europe overall,” states Mr. Ryan. “Cork is a growing technology hub with a great talent pool and robust infrastructure. This project highlights T5’s global expansion strategy and shows our commitment to serving our customers wherever they need us.”

T5’s 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, with direct access to Ireland’s five largest domestic fiber carriers, as well as subsea cable connectivity to the United States, United Kingdom, and Europe. As with all T5 facilities, each data center can be customized to accommodate any enterprise-grade or cloud computing deployment.

In addition, T5@Ireland is 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 location also offers ideal climate conditions for indirect, free air cooling, and the building is equipped with Liebert DSE cooling for modular growth.

Upon completion, the facility will be fully 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 customers’ IT staff, offering facilities operations and management, remote hands, and IT consulting services. The T5FM recently achieved the milestone of 2.5 million hours worked without a lost-time injury.
