BRIARCLIFF MANOR, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 7, 2014) - T5 Data Centers™ (www.t5datacenters.com), innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments for any enterprise, today announced the launch of T5@NY in Westchester County, the company's seventh U.S. data center location and the first T5 facility in the Northeast.
Developed in conjunction with Lincoln Rackhouse, the data center division for Lincoln Property Company, the new powered-shell, purpose-built data center is a completely renovated facility located 30 miles north of Manhattan. The 38,000-square-foot building is located on 9.4 acres and the site was chosen because of its proximity to New York City, making it ideal for disaster recovery or use as a "mirror" data center location for enterprise, financial services, trading, and technology firms. It has an existing 2 MW capacity expandable to 4.25 MW, with fiber telecommunication connections available from multiple providers.
"When we decided to open our T5@NY facility, we applied what we learned from Hurricane Sandy," said Aaron Wangenheim, Chief Marketing Officer for T5 Data Centers. "We chose Briarcliff Manor because we believe it to be one of the safest data center locations in the New York metro, as evidenced by the fact that the area was largely unaffected by Sandy and never lost power. It's also in the heart of a booming technology region. T5@NY is a great addition to our portfolio, expanding our presence into the Northeast and giving us access to new clients seeking data center resiliency and customization."
T5@NY is located in the heart of the New York BioHud Valley, home of the largest biotechnology workforce in New York State. T5@NY can serve as an excellent laboratory or incubator space for regional medical and research institutions, such as Cornell, New York Medical College, Phelps Memorial Hospital, and Westchester Medical Center. Westchester County is also home to the headquarters of New York Life, Chrysler Financial, Liberty Mutual, PepsiCo, IBM, and other global companies.
T5 Data Centers is marketing to new tenants for T5@NY now. The facility is expected to be completely operational by the second quarter of this year.
