Dallas Data Center Plans Major Expansion

Aligned Data Centers will expand the company’s 19-acre, flagship hyperscale campus in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metro Area. Once complete, DFW-02 will stand at 220,000 sq. ft. and offer 36 MW of critical capacity across 185,000 sq. ft. of data hall space. The facility will stand adjacent to Aligned’s DFW-01 data center.

“The Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex has seen a steady rise in corporate relocations and expansions into the area.  DFW is experiencing a record year of data center absorption as it continues its growth as a vital interconnection hub for major cloud providers, large financial and insurance firms, and top-tier technology companies,” says Aligned’s Andrew Schaap. Due to lower-than-average energy costs, businesses that deploy their digital infrastructure in the Dallas market take advantage of costs per kW, that are significantly less compared to other metro areas.

For data center customers that are focused on achieving their sustainability goals, Texas maintains a large renewable power presence, including wind and solar resources.
