T5 Data Centers, a U.S. data center owner and operator with colocation facilities in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Charlotte, has broken ground on T5@Portland, a two building wholesale colocation data center campus in suburban Portland. A Fortune 100 company has already leased T5@Portland’s first building.
The new data center campus will consist of two separate buildings; one of which has already been pre-leased. The second building will be a 110,000 square foot, nine critical megawatt data center and pre-leasing is already underway for this facility. The T5@Portland data centers should be ready for occupancy in early summer 2015. T5@Portland is one of seven sites across the United States within the T5 Data Centers portfolio.
Like T5 Data Centers‘ entire portfolio of data centers, T5@Portland’s colocation facilities are purpose-built and offer server-ready IT solutions capable of housing multiple independent data center tenants. T5@Portland is being constructed to LEED Silver specification, and would take advantage of the coastal Pacific Northwest climate to offset cooling costs and maximize power usage effectiveness (PUE) of the data centers. The T5@Portland data centers will have power from two redundant power feeds into the facility and are being designed as high-performance and seismic secure colocation facilities.
“We have built a national reputation for delivering high-quality data centers that provide superior reliability,” said Aaron Wangenheim, Chief Marketing Officer for T5 Data Centers. “This project is another great example of that philosophy. T5@Portland meets all the criteria that enterprise customers are looking for – purpose built performance, high resiliency and low cost.”
