Aligned Data Centers, a leading technology infrastructure company offering innovative, sustainable and adaptive scale data centres and Build-to-Scale solutions for global hyperscale and enterprise customers, has announced its expansion into the Pacific north-west with a 27-acre, 10 MW data centre campus in Hillsboro, Oregon.
The campus caps a year of accelerated growth for Aligned, which saw the launch of new sites or expansions of existing facilities in Chicago, Dallas, Frederick County, Maryland, Northern Virginia, Phoenix and Salt Lake City, as well as its recently announced planned acquisition of LATAM data centre provider, ODATA.
“The rapidly expanding Hillsboro data centre market offers a host of advantages to hyperscale and large enterprise customers, especially as compared to other western data centre locations,” said Andrew Schaap, CEO of Aligned. “Hillsboro offers a business-friendly environment, affordable power and renewable energy options, diverse metro and long-haul connectivity to major cities and tech hubs such as Los Angeles, Seattle and Silicon Valley, as well as proximity to international subsea cable networks that reduce latency between the US and high-growth markets in the Asia-Pacific region.”
Master-planned for two new buildings, the initial data centre at Aligned’s Hillsboro campus is expected to offer 72 MW of critical capacity. The second building is currently planned for 36 MW. The campus is strategically located within the region of the State of Oregon’s Enterprise Zone programme.Click below to share this article
