Aligned: Aligned completes first phase of Salt Lake metro data center

Feb 25, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Aligned Data Centers has announced that it has completed the first phase of the latest ‘Build-to-Scale’ waterless data center in the Salt Lake Metro Area. The company said that its decision to pursue a waterless build is in response to increased awareness of the importance of water conservation which is now recognized as a “critical pillar of corporate environmental stewardship and a climate secure planet.”

Speaking about the development of the facility, Andrew Schaap, CEO of Aligned, outlined: “For hyperscalers seeking to increase capacity or expand their product or service offerings in the Salt Lake Metro Area or any region in the world, speed-to-market and scalability must strike a balance with reduced risk, predictable cost, and quality of construction.

He went on to explain that the deployment is a “great example” of the company’s problem-solving capabilities and “commitment to exceeding customer goals.” He continued: “This time last year, our customer came to us with a critical need: to secure new capacity in the Salt Lake Metro Area and be online in early 2022. That left Aligned with the task of locating and purchasing a new site, creating a custom design, and launching a data center – all in under 10 months. I couldn’t be more pleased with our organization and how each of us leans in to meet our customer’s expectations and make this project a success.”
