Stack Infrastructure has announced plans for expansion of its data center campus in Atlanta with the development of a new two-story, 12MW facility.

 “Stack’s expansion strategy continues to be driven by the needs of our clients and this is another example of our commitment to establishing strong footholds with room for growth and campus economics in their most important markets,” said Matt VanderZanden, Chief Strategy Officer of Stack Infrastructure.

“Stack is experiencing outsized demand in Atlanta based on the favorable business climate, low overall operating costs, and robust infrastructure. The expansion of our campus will enable us to help our clients further anchor their presence in the Southeast.”

The new data center will be developed on a recently acquired 6-acre land parcel adjacent to  Stack’s existing data center in Alpharetta, Atlanta, Georgia, and will bring the campus total critical capacity to 20MW.

“The City of Alpharetta is excited about this new investment Stack Infrastructure is making to expand their footprint in our community,” said Jim Galvin, Mayor of the City of Alpharetta.

“Critical infrastructure is more important than ever before in today’s business climate so we look forward to working with Stack as they adapt and compete in a rapidly changing marketplace.”

In January, Stack Infrastructure announced plans to develop a new 32MW data center on its Silicon Valley campus located in San Jose, a facility that will be served power through utility PG&E’s Direct Access programme.

The company also announced in September last year that it plans to bring its U.S. portfolio to nine data centers at the time with the development of a second data center in Portland, Oregon.

Stack’s land acquisition in Atlanta marks the latest of six expansion projects announced over the last twelve months that will collectively add more than 400MW of critical capacity to the company’s offering.
