T5 Data Centers, a U.S. colocation data center owner and operator, has announced that all five of its data center facilities have received the 2016 Uptime Institute Network’s Data Center Performance Award. Four data centers – T5@Atlanta, T5@LA, T5@Dallas, and T5@Kings Mountain – have received the award for the second year in a row, demonstrating 24 months of continuous, uninterrupted operations.
The Uptime Institute Network’s Data Center Performance Awards were implemented in 1998 to recognize member companies for maintaining continuous uptime of all IT equipment in their data centers.
