Andrew Schaap, CEO at Aligned explores how adaptive, intelligent and sustainable infrastructure will be able to meet future data demands. This includes build-to-suit data center approaches.
Amid soaring demand for digital infrastructure, data center developer Aligned has increased its secured credit facility to $575 million, citing “consistently strong” customer demand.
Aligned will add 30 megawatts of new capacity at its Ashburn data center, citing recent leasing success and strong demand in Northern Virginia. The expansion comes just five months after Aligned opened the site.
Aligned has matched the entire IT load of its data centers with renewable energy, as part of a holistic sustainability program spanning all parts of its operations.
Phill Lawson-Shanks, CIO and Sustainability Committee Chair at Aligned Energy hones in on sustainable data centers, and what a “new breed” of data centers focused on energy efficiency will look like.
Northern Virginia, the largest data center in the market, is seeing a surge in supply and an even bigger surge in demand. Ashburn, Va., within this market experiencing hyper growth, is known as “data center alley.” A new white paper from Aligned Energy provides a case study and outlines one data center provider’s process in building in the top colocation market in North America with the launch of Aligned Ashburn.
Aligned Energy has lined up a $495 million secured credit facility, from investors led by Goldman Sachs, which will fund data center expansions in Dallas, Phoenix and Salt Lake City.
Aligned Energy has opened the doors at its first data center in Northern Virginia. Aligned Ashburn will showcase the company’s focus on efficiency and high-density cooling.
Aligned Energy continues to build its executive team with industry veterans. Michael Coleman, a veteran of leadership posts at Google and Yahoo, has joined Aligned as Global Head of Design and Delivery.
