Data center colocation, cloud and connectivity provider, Flexential, has today announced the development of its new data center campus in Hillsboro, Oregon – in partnership with T5 Data Centers.

Through this partnership, Flexential has established a long-term lease agreement with T5, the original owner of the Oregon campus site. Also, T5 Construction Services will provide development and construction services for the new data center campus in accordance with Flexential’s standards, specifications, and commitment to sustainability.

“As the longest-standing data center provider in Hillsboro, we are committed to providing the most flexible connectivity and capacity options for our Pacific Northwest customers, backed by Flexential’s industry-leading ability to offer a complete cloud portfolio to suit customers’ unique needs,” said Ryan Mallory, Chief Operating Officer, Flexential.

“It was a clear, necessary next step to expand our Hillsboro footprint as demand continues to increase in a region that offers a direct, fast connection to APAC. We look forward to the continued growth and success of this campus.”

Located adjacent to Flexential’s Hillsboro 3 facility, the new campus is designed to deliver 54MW of capacity upon full build. Already, Flexential plans to leverage an existing 138,000 square foot data center on the site to rapidly deliver its fourth data center in Hillsboro with an initial capacity of 18MW. This will be followed by the development of a 358,000 square foot data center with 36MW capacity.

“Flexential’s expansion within our Hillsboro data center campus aligns perfectly with T5’s commitment to sustainability and customer service,” said Pete Marin, CEO of T5 Data Centers.

“T5’s Development and Construction Services team has already engaged and is working closely with Flexential to deliver 500,000 square feet and 54MW of industry-leading quality and performance that will support the needs of their customers and our environment.”

T5 Data Centers also have a 140 acre site in Augusta, Georgia, where it plans to develop a new 200MW government and enterprise cloud data center campus.
