An Adaptable Solution that Aligns with your Sustainable Data Center Goals
To others, it’s an add-on. To us, it’s our origin.
Aligned has been committed to solving the world’s toughest sustainability challenges associated with data center infrastructure, energy consumption and water usage since our inception. Our adaptive data center platform is focused on helping companies deliver greater business value with less costly energy and infrastructure resources. Sustainability is, and will always be, at the core of what we do.
To us, being a sustainable data center operation far exceeds purchasing renewable energy certificates, it’s about commiting to sustainable practices and principles across every facet of our organization: From the partners we choose to work with, to the way we structure our supply chain, to the way we approach design, construct, fit-out and operate our adaptive data centers.
Aligned matches 100% of its IT load with renewable sources.
“Aligned is committed to powering our data center portfolio with renewable, clean energy and working with clients to achieve our shared carbon-reduction goals. Our focus is to provide ultra-efficient, rapidly deployable and sustainable data center solutions that enable customers to scale easily and efficiently as their business grows, while supporting a clean energy future.”
