T5’s President and CEO, Pete Marin recently sat down with the all-star Capacity Media team on Season 4, episode 7 of the Digital Digest Podcast. Melanie Mingas – Editor, Natalie Bannerman – Deputy Editor and Alan Burkitt-Gray – Editor at Large, all weighed in on T5’s growth, new Cybersecurity Data Center, the company’s enterprise and hyperscale focus and what it takes to earn the business of these critical sectors.
Let’s Break it Down
T5@Augusta: As Marin explained, T5 is “making strides into the Federal IT space” with its 140 acre, 200 MW cloud data center campus located in the U.S. cybersecurity hub outside of Atlanta, Georgia. T5@Augusta leverages and builds upon the cluster for advanced cybersecurity initiatives that are in close proximity to the U.S. Army’s Cyber Command Headquarters at Fort Gordon and will be ideal for federal, hyperscale, or government contracted enterprise businesses.
Marin noted that T5 is seeing an increased demand for cybersecurity, and the organizations that support it will need a proximate location and low latency connectivity.
Quantum Computing Accelerating the Digital Economy
The discussion segued into Quantum computing, as a key solution to solving cybersecurity threats, and the standards that have to be adhered to currently and how they will continue to evolve in the future.
Quantum computing will allow the industry to enter in completely new areas. Marin said to let your imagination run wild as he explained some real world use-cases. To optimize quantum computing fully, it takes a lot of compute and storage to navigate the simplest things. All in all, federal government agencies will need additional capacity and low latency routes right where that communication takes place.
T5 Strongly Positioned for Tremendous Growth Ahead
“It’s an exciting time to be in the data center space and it continues to expand in an exponential form. Those of us that are positioned in the right markets with the right team and of course with the right capital, you are able to execute in front of that demand – it’s not going to slow down anytime soon. So, it’s a very exciting time to be in this industry. There is a great group of companies that are chasing this demand and executing against it. We are thrilled to be a part of it. T5 operates in excess of 55 data centers and we have over 500 employees and we are expanding internationally. It will be an exciting time for us in the years to come in addition to what we talked about today with the federal pursuit we are going after. ” – Pete Marin, President and CEO for T5 Data Centers
