Thanksgiving: On Data Center Choices

As football season rolls into mid-year form, the weather turns cooler and the days shorter, and as the local malls put up their holiday decorations (already!), it is only natural to look towards Thanksgiving and think of the bountiful cornucopia of choices available on the traditional Thanksgiving table.  Having choices is great, right?

We think having choices associated with your data center solution is important as well.  From being able to support a wide range of density requirements and desired outlet temperature settings in an isolated suite, to having the ability to accommodate thermal storage, STS PDUs, additional fuel storage beyond 48 hours at full load, and even wholesale changes of topology from N+1 to 2N on an individual isolated electrical lineups, T5 Data Centers are facilities that have been designed and built with the ability to be modified to meet the exact demands and preferences of any requirement.

As you look at all of the possibilities on the Thanksgiving spread however, it all comes back to the star of the table, the bird, to make or break the success of the meal itself.  Just like the turkey, which can be made in countless varieties of ways from smoking, roasting, barbecuing, and frying, there are immeasurable varieties of basic configurations of the data center electrical topology.  We like to think that our “middle of the fairway” approach to electrical systems provides a very solid, logical, and proven solution to concurrent maintainability and fault tolerance.  Whatever your preference, you can dress your turkey dinner up in any manner of trappings and options, but all that you are really concerned about is that the turkey looks and tastes great while focusing attention on family, football, and thanks.  Likewise, at the end of the day with your data center facilities, all that really matters is that they perform exactly as you want them to: solidly, consistently, and most of all, without any surprises!

As we near Thanksgiving, we at T5 Data Centers are thankful for the bountiful year we have experienced; we are thankful for the great relationships we have established with our customers, our potential customers, our consultants and vendors, and our competitors; and, we are thankful for the families of all of those involved.  We are thankful for each and every one of you and look forward to great things to come as the year closes, and as we look toward the future.  As W.T. Purkiser correctly noted, “Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”  Here is to hoping that you use your blessings every day!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
