T5 Data Centers Signs New Financial Tenant for T5@Atlanta

Superior Physical Security and Design Flexibility Attracts Financial Services Company Servicing Global Transactions.

T5 Data Centers

Atlanta, GA, USA — 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.

T5 Data Centers(TM) Adds a Level 3 Fiber “Point-of-Presence” in the T5@Atlanta Data Center

T5@Atlanta, the Southeast’s premiere multi-tenant data center, now provides its customers direct access to the Level 3 network by way of an on-site Point-of-Presence.

T5 Data Centers

Atlanta, GA, USA (March 25, 2015) — T5 Data Centers™, a provider of Multi-Tenant Data Centers with a portfolio of facilities across North America, today announced global telecommunications company Level 3 Communications, will provide a fiber point-of-presence (PoP) at the company’s “T5@Atlanta” data center. Current and future tenants will have the option to lease direct network access from Level 3 for greater reliability and flexibility.

T5@Atlanta is a purpose-built, Tier III, server-ready data center that features multiple independent data suites occupied by various tenants. Enterprises can take advantage of stronger service level agreements (SLAs), more available bandwidth and better service and support through the new access to Level 3’s highly secure fiber backbone.

“By establishing a PoP at T5@Atlanta we can offer enterprise customers around the country faster, more reliable access to their critical data,” said Brian Dolan, vice president and general manager of Georgia for Level 3. “We recently expanded our network presence in the technology corridor Alpharetta to provide the local to global connection for the more than 600 companies working out of the area.”

One of seven sites across the United States, T5@Atlanta has more than 100,000 square feet under one roof, including 55,000 feet of raised floor, with individual data halls, each separated by slab-to-deck, fire-rated walls for autonomous operation. The data center also has an installed critical IT power load of 6,000 kW, expandable to 9,000 kW and is fed by five separate substations; two of them on Georgia Power’s “Hi-Reli” system for mission-critical users. It’s ideally suited for companies that require secure, dedicated control of their mission critical data operations, such as financial service firms, insurance companies, and health care providers.

“Although we remain a carrier-neutral colocation provider, we want to be able to offer our tenants a choice in telecommunications providers, including direct network access over high-speed fiber,” said Jason Chartrand, Executive Vice President of National Business Development for T5 Data Centers. “This new agreement with Level 3 puts us in a stronger position to serve regional customers with highly reliable colocation services.”

Currently Level 3 is the only network services provider to have a PoP facility on-site.

T5@Atlanta is a purpose-built, Tier III, server-ready data center with multiple data suite sizes and densities within its secure, bunkered facility. Each data hall suite is separated by slab-to-deck, fire-rated walls for autonomous operation, and security of regulated personal financial and/or health information.
