T5 unveils enterprise data centre in Silicon Valley


T5 Data Centers has announced its recent acquisition of a previously enterprise-owned data centre facility located in Newark, California.

The company’s T5@Silicon Valley currently features an existing 128,000 sqf building with 17MW of power.

T5 said it will develop an additional 32.1MW, 180,000 sqf building on the site, bringing the campus's total available power capacity to 49.1MW to meet the growing needs of hyperscale cloud customers.

"We're excited to bring T5's lifecycle solutions to one of the top data centre markets in the country," said T5's President and CEO Pete Marin.

"Not only will our new facility showcase our best-in-class development solutions, but this facility also gives T5 a solid position in one of the most supply-constrained data centre markets in the US."

Located in the East Bay suburb of Newark, California, T5@Silicon Valley uses the PG&E Direct Access program that provides customers with aggressive power rates comparable to Silicon Valley Power.

In addition to an almost 50MW power capacity, T5@Silicon Valley includes data hall density to support variable loads, renewable solar solutions and N+1 mechanical cooling support to minimise water and energy consumption.

The facility, which was previously owned by a Fortune 100 enterprise, offers a foundation for T5 to implement its development and operations solutions for current and prospective tenants.

In locations beyond Silicon Valley, T5 continues to expand its footprint throughout the country's data centre markets, including new hyperscale and enterprise projects currently under construction in Chicago, Portland and Atlanta, and existing facilities in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Cleveland and Cincinnati.

"With the addition of Silicon Valley, T5 is better positioned to provide best-in-class data centre lifecycle solutions to our growing portfolio of customers across the country," added David Horowitz, Executive Vice President of Sales.

The company provides data centre services, ranging from development and mission-critical construction to leasing, outsourced facility management and IT data hall operations for organisations across North America and Europe.
