April 20th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Three newly announced buildout projects in 4 markets across two continents:

Kasi Cloud Ltd. is taking aim at its home data center marketplace in Nigeria. The home grown infrastructure company has broken ground on a new hyperscale facility in the Lagos metro area. The company has acquired 4 hectares of land in the upscale Maiyegun area of Lekki. If all goes well they plan to follow up with several more campuses in the region.

DC BLOX is investing in a further expansion of its footprint in the southeastern US. In Birmingham AL they are building out an additional data hall backed by 2.4MW of 3N/2 power. That will support 240 standard cabinets as well as 36 HPC-capable cabinets. Meanwhile, in Greenville SC they are also building out a second data hall, adding 9,000 square feet and 1MW of power.

And Aligned has completed the first phase of its new hyperscale campus out in Chicago while immediately kicking off a followup. Aligned ORD-1 adds 220K square feet and 48MW of capacity to the company’s footprint, leveraging the company’s Delta3 cooling technology. Meanwhile they aren’t taking a break, and have already broken ground on the second such facility on the 18.5-acre campus. Aligned has a lot going on these days, given their simultaneous expansion project out in Phoenix AZ.
