New Data Center Coming to Georgia
Data center solution provider T5 Data Centers has announced plans to build a new 200-megawatt government and enterprise cloud data center campus in Georgia.
The 140-acre T5@Augusta development will be sited in the Southeast’s cybersecurity hub, Augusta, next to Fort Gordon and the US Army’s Cyber Command Headquarters.
T5 Data Centers said the campus location “is ideal for secure federal hyperscale, or government contracted enterprise businesses and builds on the cluster for advanced cybersecurity initiatives based in Augusta.”
Initiatives of this kind already up and running in Augusta include the Georgia Cyber Center, a collaboration between state, federal and higher education institutions, whose first building opened in July 2018. Costing $100m, the Georgia Cyber Center is the single largest investment in a cybersecurity facility by a state government in the US to date.

“In addition, our clients get a business-friendly and stable tax environment, with 100% sales tax abatement on IT purchases,
