Abu Dhabi-based Mubadala Investment Company has invested in Aligned Data Centers, becoming a minority partner alongside majority partners managed by Macquarie Asset Management.

While most of Aligned’s operations are focussed in North America, the company recently acquired ODATA in Latin America. The group’s presence in LatAm includes data centres in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Mexico. Aligned’s footprint will span more than 2.5 GW of capacity across 40+ data centres at full buildout.

“Mubadala is pleased to invest in Aligned, one of the fastest-growing and dynamic data centre providers in the Americas. Our investment will support Aligned’s rapid expansion, further reinforcing the company’s position as a preferred partner in the Pan-American data centre market,” said, Khaled Abdulla Al Qubaisi, Chief Executive Officer of Real Estate and Infrastructure Investments at Mubadala.  

“In addition to Aligned’s continued business growth, we are further excited by its AI-ready status, making it strategically positioned to support infrastructure requirements for a broad set of AI, ML, and DL services. We look forward to working with Aligned’s talented management and employees to deliver essential digital infrastructure across the Americas.”

Andrew Schaap, Chief Executive Officer at Aligned, added, “We are excited to partner with the Mubadala team in support of Aligned’s continued growth trajectory and expanding data centre platform, as well as a collective focus on building a more sustainable future through innovative, efficient infrastructure. This investment is a testament to our world-class data centre solutions, high-calibre teams, and ability to quickly address the growing capacity demands and requirements of our loyal hyperscale and enterprise customers across the Americas.”

Mubadala has a growing digital infrastructure presence in the US, following its commitment to invest US $500 million in US telco Brightspeed.

In 2022, Mubadala also invested US $350 million into pan-Asian Princeton Digital Group, as well as £800 million into CityFibre, the UK’s largest independent full-fibre platform.
