T5 Data Centers Completes T5@Chicago To Accommodate Growing Demand from Enterprise Data Center Users

Completion of Purpose-Built, Customizable Facility Gives T5 a Leadership Presence in Burgeoning Chicago Data Center Market.

Elk Grove Village, IL, USA — T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale computing environments for enterprise companies, has completed construction of the T5@Chicago data center in one of the hottest markets in the United States.

The completion of the T5@Chicago facility just seven months after beginning construction demonstrates T5’s ability to build data centers quickly and in a robust nature that appeals to the corporate enterprise. The data center now offers up to 10 MW of available critical power capacity in the important submarket of Elk Grove Village.

The colocation market continues to thrive in the U.S. represented by quarter over quarter leasing records posted by data center providers. The evaluation process of choosing whether to outsource or build your own data center used to be much more complicated and strenuous. However, T5 Data Centers has simplified this decision-making process for companies through its ability to build extremely resilient facilities in a more cost effective, efficient and timely manner.

“Our extensive development process from the initial building design stages to collaborating with our customers during installation has eliminated much of the complexity companies have when undertaking data center initiatives,” said David Horowitz, Vice President of Sales for T5 Data Centers. “It’s all about listening to the customer and delivering on what is important to them. These are mission-critical projects and customers not only demand operational performance and continuous uptime, but they also want to avoid giving up control of their infrastructure. The level of security, unparalleled customer support and true visibility into a customer’s infrastructure within a T5 facility is superior to owning and operating themselves.”

T5 Data Centers has already completed leases in T5@Chicago with a variety of Fortune 1000 companies who were looking for a partner that offered a customizable solution in a highly secure environment.

“We have preleased most of the Phase 1 capacity at T5@Chicago and are already embarking on plans for further expansion,” said Horowitz. “Chicago continues to be one of the hottest data center markets in the country, and T5 is in a unique position to be able to offer such a robust and flexible solution.”

“ComEd has invested billions to upgrade the power delivery infrastructure in Northern Illinois, including a recent substation capacity expansion benefiting the Elk Grove area” said Sheila Owens, Vice President of Economic Development, of ComEd. “This will help ensure consistent and reliable service for customers at T5 Data Centers.”

The newly completed T5@Chicago data center is a purpose-built, LEED-certified data center providing server-ready space for enterprise customers in a highly secure environment. In addition to providing secured, private data halls in a concurrently maintainable and fault-tolerant design, T5@Chicago also provides premium common area amenities to accommodate its customers’ employees.

On-site support is available through T5 Facilities Management (T5FM), which provides best-in-class, award-winning facilities management services including remote hands to data center owners across North America. The T5FM team provides 24/7 facilities support so customers can be assured of uninterrupted service.

Momentum Continues for T5 Data Centers with Addition of S&P 500 Client in Chicago

Information Technology Company Chooses T5@Chicago To Accommodate Rapid Growth.

Elk Grove Village, IL, USA — T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale computing environments for enterprise companies, today announced another pre-lease within Phase 2 of the T5@Chicago build-out. This is the second pre-lease with an enterprise company for T5 Data Centers in Chicago. Pre-leasing is challenging in the data center industry and occurs more often with hyperscale providers than it does with the enterprise. However, T5 was able to deliver a customized solution for this client and meet an accelerated time frame for a “rack-ready” data hall.

This S&P 500 Client needed immediate access to a Tier III data center in the Chicagoland area, but more importantly, that data center had to be both customizable and meet the stringent security and administrative criteria of highly regulated companies. T5 has extensive experience building custom data center solutions for customers in financial services, telecommunications, health care, and other regulated markets across the country.

“The complexity of these projects requires a cohesive team that communicates effectively and pays close attention to detail. The level of transparency we demonstrate to our customers provides them with a level of comfort and control, as if our operations staff was simply an extension of their team,” said David Horowitz, VP of Sales and Marketing for T5 Data Centers.

As customer IT requirements continue to evolve with the adoption of cloud computing, it becomes more important for providers to offer flexible solutions that align with corporate objectives. Horowitz adds, “This was an incredibly fast transaction that incorporated several important factors including a creative growth structure and a flexible ramp schedule. While the transaction structure remains instrumental in selecting a data center provider, our customers find tremendous value in the processes and procedures our T5 Facility Management teams have in place to ensure 100 percent uptime and to deliver exceptional customer service.”

T5@Chicago is a highly secured, 208,000 square-foot, Tier III data center located in Elk Grove Village. This LEED Silver certified data center was acquired by T5 Data Centers in 2016 and has been operating since its inception through T5FM, which provides best-in-class, award-winning facilities management services. T5 is currently in Phase 2 of its T5@Chicago build-out, adding a new secure data hall with an additional 2 mW capacity.

T5@Chicago is the company’s ninth U.S. data center and meets the resilient, high-quality characteristics consistent across T5’s portfolio.

The hospital network is migrating its existing data center operations to the T5@Chicago custom-built facility to take advantage of more efficient systems and to accommodate capacity demand for future growth. Several of the data centers in the Chicagoland market are not purpose built facilities and have difficulty meeting emerging enterprise computing requirements. T5 Data Centers prides itself on providing state-of-the-art, custom-built data centers with on-site systems management from T5 Facilities Management (T5FM). For T5’s new hospital network tenant, T5@Chicago offers a robust infrastructure that allows them to consolidate operations and to maximize control of their infrastructure. The T5@Chicago infrastructure will also comply with HIPAA and other stringent regulations.

“Chicago is becoming one of T5’s hottest markets,” said David Horowitz, VP of Sales and Marketing for T5 Data Centers. “We are experiencing more demand from the corporate enterprise users who are requiring highly secure, scalable purpose built data centers. We are able to provide this latest Chicago tenant a customizable build-out and a scalable approach to manage future growth. Allowing our customers to control their infrastructure and have visibility into their operations like it was their own internal data center is a major differentiator that enterprise customers appreciate. Our T5 Facilities Management team is simply an extension of our customers’ teams.”

T5@Chicago offers customers a customized data center solution that provides secure private data halls in a concurrently maintainable and fault tolerant design.

“The demand from corporate enterprise seeking data center space in Chicago continues to grow in a market that has very limited supply. As vacancy rates hover around 5 percent, we are in a unique position to deliver a high-quality data center solution that will provide customers complete control of their infrastructure, as if it were their own mission critical environment,” said David Horowitz, VP of Sales and Marketing for T5 Data Centers. “Network and power continue to be the life blood of a data center. We originally chose this location because of the robust fiber network and resilient utility infrastructure in Elk Grove Village. Beyond the initial data center, our adjacent site can accommodate another 170,000-square-foot,16mW facility to support future growth.”
