Alphabet spin-out Sidewalk Infrastructure Partners (SIP) has launched a new data center-focused unit. “SIP is taking a lead on the private sector solutions by bringing Verrus — a new SIP platform company that builds next-generation data centers — out of stealth after several years of internal research and development,” the company announced this week.

SIP said Verrus is “pioneering a new generation of flexible, efficient data centers tailored for both conventional workloads and AI” by matching its infrastructure to the variable uptime requirements and actual workload needs.

An announcement by Versus reads: “In place of redundant, isolated, and unsustainable power assets, we implement optimized electrical and mechanical plant architecture to fluidly align capacity to loads across the facility. Supply adapts to sync with demand (and vice versa), rather than sitting idle. Our optimization can dynamically calibrate operations to sync with workload variability, grid interactions, and carbon availability.”
