TO SIT ON A 27 ACRE OF IT SPACE
Aligned Data Centers has today announced plans to build a new 108 MW data center campus in Hillsboro, Oregon, marking its expansion into the Pacific Northwest.
The new campus is to be a two-building data center campus, starting with 72 MW facility, while the second building is planned for 36 MW, both to be sited on a 27 acre of IT space.
“The rapidly expanding Hillsboro data center market offers a host of advantages to hyperscale and large enterprise customers, especially as compared to other Western data center 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 U.S. and high-growth markets in the Asia-Pacific region.”
The Hillsboro campus is planned to combine Aligned’s Delta³™ cooling technology with its waterless heat rejection system, while taking advantage of the region’s mild climate to reduce power usage. The company intend to serve hyperscale and large enterprise.
Most recently, Aligned announced planned acquisition of LATAM data center provider, ODATA. Marking Aligned’s entry into Latin America, the transaction is to be funded by the company, alongside an equity investment from funds managed by SDC Capital Partners (“SDC”), an operationally focused digital infrastructure investment firm, however, the financial terms were not disclosed.
Also, Aligned Data Centers entered into the Phoenix market with the acquisition of two new lands. Aligned is planning to develop two data center campuses on the lands with the expectation of delivering a total of over 400MW load capacity and approximately 2 million square feet.
As announced, the proposed Hillsboro data center campus crowns Aligned’s one year of growth, which saw new sites or expansions of existing facilities in Chicago, Dallas, Frederick County, Maryland, Northern Virginia, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City.
