PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2012) - Atlanta-based T5 Data Centers, a leading data center owner and operator supporting enterprise and wholesale data users, today announced its expansion into the Pacific Northwest with a new project, T5@Portland. T5 has acquired a 15-acre parcel of land in Hillsboro, Oregon, and is finalizing design for construction of a 200,000 square-foot, LEED-certified data center facility. Once completed, the project will be the only purpose-built, ground-up wholesale data center in the state of Oregon.
Construction of the new T5@Portland facility is scheduled to begin in early 2013, with customer ready data halls delivered in early fall 2013. The data center design is optimized to take into account the cool climate, thereby reducing the amount of power and water used to operate the facility. The center will include high-efficiency, indirect evaporative cooling with custom air handlers.
"The Pacific Northwest is a well-established destination for enterprise users looking for safe, efficient data center solutions" said Pete Marin, President of T5. "Hillsboro offers the best combination of low taxes, low power costs, a reliable infrastructure and easy access for out-of-region companies. We anticipate the T5@Portland data center to be a showcase for responsible development, and will demonstrate to customers that we can design and engineer to embrace energy efficiencies while continuing to offer our clients the resiliency and uptime they require."
As a purpose-built building, the data center also will have a hardened building shell that exceeds all seismic requirements, multiple generators for power redundancy, as well as redundant power feeds from the utility substation. Ultimately, the data center will deliver 12.25 MW of critical power with a power density up to 200 watts-per-square-foot. The T5@Portland data center will also include an on-site office and support space, as well as 24/7 monitoring of operations. Fiber connectivity is available from a dozen independent service providers, and there are three transpacific landing stations situated in Hillsboro.
T5 Data Centers is aggressively expanding its operations to meet growing customer demand. In addition to T5@Portland, T5 offers wholesale and/or enterprise data center space in the Dallas, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Charlotte markets.
