23 Mar, 2018
Aligned Energy, a leading data center provider, announced its new Salt Lake City-area development in West Jordan. When completed this summer the 300,000-square-foot building will serve as a colocation data center supporting both cloud providers and enterprise customers.
“Our new data center in West Jordan addresses the needs of cloud providers, enterprise companies and our existing customers that require an adaptive, future-proof data center solution in and around the greater Salt Lake area,” said Aligned Energy CEO Andrew Schaap. “We are delighted to be a part of the Salt Lake business community, expand our portfolio to a new market and serve the region with an incredibly efficient and highly reliable data center platform. We continue to see strong demand for our services in Phoenix, Dallas and now Salt Lake.”
Situated on 60 acres, including a dedicated on-site substation, the facility is being renovated to become a colocation data center delivering 50 MW of critical capacity. The site will initially provide a 75,000-square-foot data hall, 15,000 square feet of rentable office space and 9,700 square feet of technical burn-in and storage space. The building also will have a dedicated loading dock, conference rooms, drop-in office pods, a café area and shower facilities on site.
Aligned Energy’s new state-of-the-art Salt Lake City facility delivers an industry-leading 1.15 PUE (Power-Usage-Effectiveness). Utility power for the data center will be provided by Rocky Mountain Power. Green energy options are available.
