Aligned has announced that it is continuing expansion in the Salt Lake Metro Area with the development of the Company’s new data centre campus. They acquired the new multi-megawatt site for its latest waterless build-to-scale development. The expansion further supports its geo-redundant growth in the region, following the launch of its second Salt Lake Metro data centre, SLC-02, and in advance of a third master-planned facility on its West Jordan, Utah, campus. The project is forecasted to meet an aggressive six-month construction timeline, with completion projected in December of 2021.
“Our latest Salt Lake data centre is an example of Aligned’s ability to provide agile build-to-scale solutions focused on driving optionality, reducing added cost and risk, and enabling industry-leading construction timelines and quality,” Andrew Schaap, CEO of Aligned, said. “In addition to speed and scale, the development also satisfies our customer’s requirement for water conservation, while still delivering industry-leading power usage effectiveness (PUE). Combined with our ultra-efficient delta3 cooling technology, Utah’s cold desert climate enables us to deliver a waterless data centre solution.”
The SLC-04 facility combines the company’s delta3 cooling technology with a state-of-the-art waterless heat rejection system. This technology delivers meaningful efficiency enhancements across rising rack densities and next-generation workloads for maximum flexibility and adaptability, regardless of altitude or geographical climate zone.
The company’s build-to-suit solutions, known as build-to-scale, are delivered at an unprecedented speed and built for optimum scale to solve the complex needs of today’s large enterprises and hyperscalers. From campuses to custom data centre deployments, they can complete a build-to-scale project in any location, preemptively evaluating sites across multiple facets in multiple markets to minimise development timeframes.
