T5 Data Centers, a U.S. colocation data center owner and operator, has completed construction of a new concurrently maintainable, 156,000 Square Foot, greenfield and purpose-built facility with 10.75 MW capacity. The new colocation facility is now open for business.

The new T5 data centers facility, T5@Dallas III, is tenant ready and located on the T5@Dallas campus terrain in Plano’s Legacy Business Park.

T5@Dallas III features a “highly efficient” chilled water plant for a low annualized PUE, and it offers both N+1 and 2N MEP configurations for guaranteed uptime. The new facility will be maintained by the company’s own dedicated T5 Facilities Management (T5FM) team.

The data center building itself is designed to withstand winds in excess of 221 mph (EF-5 tornado equivalent), and there are multiple redundant power feeds from two local substations. In addition, the T5@Dallas III facility can take advantage of the multiple carriers and fiber connections already serving the T5@Dallas data center campus.

“Dallas is our most active data center market so it only made sense to bolster our T5@Dallas campus with an additional enterprise grade facility,” said Aaron Wangenheim, Chief Operating Officer for T5 Data Centers. “Our new T5@Dallas III data center is a smaller version of the adjoining T5@Dallas I data center with the same robust construction, design redundancy, and physical, electrical, and mechanical infrastructure. Dallas is a growing market for Fortune 500 companies and we want all of our tenants to be confident that when they sign with T5 Data Centers, they get a state-of-the-art facility with top-tier support.”

The original T5@Dallas facility is a 311,000 square foot/21.0 megawatt building with four isolated data centers under one roof. T5@Dallas is one of six T5 data centers across the U.S.

T5 currently has “business-critical” colocation data center facilities in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Dallas, Portland, Charlotte, Chicago, New York and Colorado. All of T5’s data center projects are purpose-built facilities featuring redundant power and telecommunications, and have 24-hour staff to support “mission-critical” computing applications.
