Aligned Data Centers will acquire land, power and water at Quantum Loophole Inc.’s data center campus in Frederick County, MD.

Deal to Bring Future Data Center Development to Frederick County, MD

Quantum Loophole, Inc., has signed an agreement with Aligned Data Centers for the latter to acquire land, power and water at Quantum Loophole’s Frederick County, MD data center campus.

The agreement follows Frederick County’s approval of an amendment to its Zoning Ordinance explicitly designating data centers as a permitted use in areas zoned light industrial or general industrial.

Quantum Loophole’s planned custom fiber build, QLoop, will connect the Frederick County site to Loudoun County, VA via an ultra-high count fiber optic cable system, enabling automatic cross connections and fully redundant regional fiber connectivity capable of sub-millisecond latency between the two counties.

Quantum Loophole projects global spending on data center systems will grow to $226 billion in 2022, up 11.4 percent year over year. As data center needs accelerate, the associated land, power, water, and connectivity continue to be constrained, as the cost of land and the infrastructure required to support data center development also increases.
