T5 Data Centers (T5) has unveiled T5@Augusta, the planned development of a 140-acre, 200 MW government and enterprise cloud data centre campus in Augusta, Georgia, the Southeast’s cybersecurity hub.
The property is adjacent to Fort Gordon and the U.S. Army’s Cyber Command Headquarters.
The site is built for secure federal hyperscale, or government-contracted enterprise businesses and builds on the cluster for advanced cyber security initiatives based in Augusta.
Those initiatives include the Georgia Cyber Center, a collaboration between state, federal, and higher education institutions.
Pete Marin, CEO of T5, said: “The vast, premium location of this property makes it ideal for federal cloud space and government contractors, with access to a large labour force with required security clearances, access to lit, dark, and black fibre, and any necessary physical security measures.
“In addition, our clients get a business-friendly and stable tax environment, with 100% sales tax abatement on IT purchases, property tax rebates, and low-cost reliable power.”
Steven Kendrick, Chairman, Augusta Economic Development Authority, said: “Augusta has made a name for itself as a hub for the cybersecurity industry. With T5’s development of this vast tract of land, the company is helping spur more tech-centric economic development for the community.
“We are pleased to support new projects in the area that will cement our city’s cybersecurity stronghold.”
