Aligned Energy, a leading data center provider offering innovative, sustainable, and adaptable colocation and build-to-scale solutions, has expanded its Dallas, Texas-area data center, DFW-01. The latest expansion will add an 8 MW to its 19-acre campus.
The US data center provider informed that the expansion is "in response to rising customer demand for Aligned’s adaptive and intelligent infrastructure solutions." The campus will support a 375,000 square-foot, 60 MW facility at full build-out. According to the company, its carrier-neutral Tier III Dallas data center accommodates variable standard and high power densities, up to 50kW per rack, to support high-performance computing demands.
“The expansion of our Dallas data center underscores our commitment to enabling our customers’ success by providing businesses with a high-performance, adaptive data center platform that is dynamically scalable, efficient and reliable,” said Andrew Schaap, CEO of Aligned Energy in a statement.
The company focuses on reducing the energy, water, and space needed to operate its data center solutions. Aligned believes that Texas offers powerful opportunities for its customers to achieve their sustainability goals. The Texas Electricity Grid (ERCOT) is the only self-contained electric power grid in the US that serves a single state. Aligned Energy says it facilitates businesses that collocate at its data center to take advantage of costs per kW that are significantly less compared to the national average.
“Our platform is focused on helping companies deliver greater business value with less costly energy and infrastructure resources, and our Dallas facility’s sustainability profile is further elevated as the State of Texas becomes a national leader in renewable power options,” added Andrew Schaap.
Its Dallas facility offers an industry-leading Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE). The company’s own innovative Delta3 cooling solution uses up to 85 percent less water, and up to 80 percent less energy than traditional facilities, reducing natural resource use and customers’ total cost of ownership.
Aligned has a total footprint of 1.6 million sq ft of data center space. Besides Dallas, the company has facilities in Ashburn, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City.
