Booming North Texas Data Center Demand Leads to Construction of Additional Capacity
T5 Data Centers™, innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments for any enterprise, today 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 square-foot 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 square-foot building on a 20-acre site located in Legacy Business Park in Plano, Texas. Texas4 is the remaining data center, available soon with 40,000 square feet 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.
T5@Dallas is one of seven T5 Data Center locations situated at strategic locations across the United States. Each data center is purpose-built and customers have total control of their dedicated data hall. The T5 Critical Facility Operations Team provides support from design and construction through commissioning, and beyond. The objective is to give the customer absolute control over Total Cost of Occupancy.
