LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- T5 Data Centers (www.t5datacenters.com), innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable, and highly reliable computing support for any enterprise, today announced the completion and commissioning of its new T5@LA data center at 444 North Nash Street, El Segundo, California. The T5 team has successfully commissioned the first 3.7-megawatts (3.7 MWs) of what will ultimately be 16.65 MWs of critical power, so the new data center is ready for mission-critical operations for lease to enterprise customers.
In addition, T5 announced the signing of the first lease at T5@LA. The Los Angeles based critical infrastructure agency is the first enterprise customer and will occupy a custom-built data hall. They selected T5@LA because of the facility's seismic rating, dedicated power supply, and redundant systems that ensure uninterrupted service. They also selected T5 Data Centers because of the company's reputation for reliability and data security. Occupancy will be in 2013.
The new T5@LA data center is a purpose-built, 205,000-square-foot building on a 6.1 acre site. Designed as a high-quality, fully equipped wholesale data center, the facility is customizable to customer needs and features 120,000 square feet of raised floor. The building is built from structurally enhanced steel and has been designed to withstand earthquakes with a seismic importance factor of 1.5. T5@LA also has a dedicated, on-site power substation to ensure high reliability of electricity at a reduced "wholesale" cost.
"Los Angeles has been an underserved market for server-ready data center services" said Pete Marin, President of T5. "T5@LA is the first purpose built wholesale data center in the Los Angeles basin. We're seeing great demand for our high quality and super-efficient design."
The new T5@LA data center was designed for large enterprise customers seeking a customizable, "always-on" computing environment. The facility takes advantage of cool coastal air to help chill the data halls via an indirect evaporative process that uses approximately half the energy of traditional data center designs. T5 maintains round-the-clock engineering and support staff, as well as redundant systems to deliver the best service possible as well as peace of mind. The company already supports a number of Fortune 200 companies at its other data center facilities.
"We are very excited to welcome our first tenant to T5@LA," said Aaron Wangenheim Executive Vice President of T5, responsible for marketing and leasing. "T5@LA was chosen by this discerning customer because of our ability to deliver the right solution and the right efficiencies. Their critical applications required the most resilient data center possible, and we're excited to welcome them to T5@LA. "

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally. DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...
