“Aligned is the first data center provider we have seen to architect itself from day one to deliver a more reliable platform.
From its use of the most reliable cooling platform we have ever evaluated, to its selection of generation platforms, they are the first provider to focus on reliability centered improvements from design through operations.”

The Data Center Frontier Executive Roundtable features insights from industry executives with lengthy experience in the data center industry. Here’s a look at the insights from Andrew Schaap, CEO of Aligned.
In the latest episode of 'Inside Data Centre Podcast', Phill Lawson-Shanks, Chief Innovation Officer at Aligned discusses Aligned's new data center development in Chicago and the importance of innovation within the data center sector.
Considering the proliferation of compute-intensive workloads that are driving the need for high-density racks — think high-performance computing (HPC), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning applications — it’s reasonable to believe that increasing density is now the new data center reality.
When it comes to data centers, power density, typically measured in kilowatts (kW) per rack, has become a critical, if not a contentious metric in design, capacity planning and the provisioning of cooling and power.
Aligned VP of Operations and Safety Officer, Billie Haggard, speaks to FacilitiesNet about how military veterans can solve the data center talent shortage.
Company’s Chief Executive Officer recognized as one of region’s top business leaders.
Andrew has significantly accelerated the company’s growth by driving the delivery of data center solutions with industry-leading technologies and adaptive infrastructure.
Located at 505 Northwest Avenue in Northlake, IL, ORD-01 will feature the Company’s patented and award-winning Delta3™ cooling technology, which utilizes up to 80% less energy and 85% less water than traditional cooling systems to improve PUE, reduce environmental impact, and lower the TCO for customers.
Aligned is entering the Suburban Chicago market, and has broken ground on a 100-megawatt data center campus in Northlake, Ill., the company said today. The Chicago project continues the steady expansion of Aligned’s footprint, which now includes five markets in the U.S.
The technological leap global companies’ digital transformation initiatives took over the last nine months was expected to unfold over five to ten years. With more and more vital B2B and B2C services becoming digitized every day and with wide adoption of video conferencing and cloud collaboration tools, many organizations have determined that their teams can operate remotely and outside of traditional corporate office hubs, at least for the foreseeable future.
Aligned has broken ground on its latest hyperscale data center campus, in the Chicago area, the company has announced.
A few months ago, we looked into the opportunity for veterans in the data center and internet infrastructure industry with Salute Mission Critical. Today, we return to that topic to talk with Aligned’s Billie Haggard.
As Loudoun, the home of the world’s largest concentration of data centers, marked International Data Center Day on Wednesday, the Data Center Coalition gave back by sponsoring meals for vaccination workers.
Sustainability is at the core of Aligned's DNA and the foundation for our growth. Watch to see how ING and Aligned worked together to help accelerate customers’ sustainability strategies, reduce carbon emissions and help combat climate change.
Two decades ago, graphics processing units, or GPUs, were used primarily to accelerate the rendering of 3D graphics for applications such as video gaming. However, it wasn’t before long that computer scientists realized that GPUs showed immense promise in solving some of the world’s most intractable computing problems.
The completion of the initial phase of Aligned’s SLC-02 will add significant capacity for organizations needing adaptive, efficient and scalable data center infrastructure for their growing cloud and application workloads.
Data center real estate grew 21 percent in 2020 and it’s looking like 2021 will be a record year for the data center sector. CNBC’s Diana Olick reports from Aligned's data center, IAD-01, in Ashburn, VA.
Aligned CEO Andrew Schaap recently participated in the "Where does net zero sit in the digital infrastructure investment landscape?" panel at DCD>Towards Net-Zero, where he discussed how the importance of sustainability is creating a shift in the investment landscape.
Last year’s sudden and unforeseen COVID-19 crisis revealed what was already becoming obvious—technology has infiltrated almost all aspects of daily life, creating more and more data that needs to be processed and stored, optimally in a purpose-built data center.
The beauty of Aligned’s cooling technology is its versatility and modularity. Our customers can initiate at one density profile and scale vertically up to 50kW per rack at their own pace without exotic cooling solutions or a large number of moving parts to maintain.
