T5 Data Centers™, innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments, has signed a lease with a new tenant for its T5@Atlanta data center. This new financial services tenant provides global transaction processing services to banks and credit card companies, and it will be hosting its North American hub at T5@Atlanta.
T5’s reputation for enterprise quality solutions and flexibility proved to be key differentiators for this new tenant. For example, the level of secure access to the data center exceeded audit requirements, and the T5 team worked closely with the new tenant in designing a data center infrastructure that met their specific needs. The T5@Atlanta data center already houses several financial services firms so this tenant’s specifications were very familiar.
“We are attracting more financial services tenants and companies with business-critical requirements because of our service, our reputation for reliability, and our flexibility of solution and lease terms,” said Tim Bright, Executive Vice President of T5 Data Centers. “This particular client’s requirements were stringent to begin with, which eliminated a number of regional competitors, and our overall offering exceeded their compliance needs and gave them flexibility to grow. Finally, our ability to offer a superior infrastructure and a predictable real estate cost model made T5@Atlanta a logical choice for this company.”
T5@Atlanta is a purpose-built, Tier III, server-ready data center with multiple data suite sizes and densities within a secure, bunkered facility. T5@Atlanta houses over 100,000 square feet under one roof; including 55,000 square feet of raised floor. It also offers an installed critical IT power load of 6,000 kW, expandable to 9,000 kW.
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 kV 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.
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.
