Aligned Data Centers has announced the development of a second hyperscale data centre campus located in Sterling, Northern Virginia.
With a plan for two new buildings across the 10-acre campus, the opening of the first facility, IAD-03, is set for autumn 2023. Once complete, the four-story, 430,000 sqft hyperscale data centre will provide 72 MW of capacity.
“Speed-to-market, scalability and sustainability have long been considered ground zero for hyperscale customers, and Aligned’s unmatched ability to successfully navigate strategic site selection challenges such as power and land constraints, supply chain issues, and energy efficiency and sustainability requirements is critical to meeting these needs, ” said Andrew Schaap, CEO of Aligned.
“Our team is laser-focused on eliminating the risks and cost exposures associated with new builds, and with our advanced supply chain methodology and experienced global partners, Aligned can deliver infrastructure anywhere an organisation’s business growth demands, providing incrementally scalable data centre capacity — aligned with our customers’ designs or ours — in unprecedented timeframes.”
Aligned delivered its first Northern Virginia campus, IAD-01, within six and a half months in September of 2019, followed by the construction of a second data centre nine months later, located in Ashburn. Aligned has also expanded its hyperscale campus in West Jordan, Utah, launched a new campus in Chicago, and broke ground on a project in the Salt Lake City Metro Area, as well as a second data centre on its Chicago campus.
