New York, New York (October 8, 2015) - Aligned Data Centers, a division of Aligned Energy, announced today the addition of several key senior-level industry veterans to support the company’s rapid growth and expansion.
In August, Aligned Data Centers introduced the first pay-for-use, consumption-based pricing model to give clients greater control of data center cost and energy efficiency by eliminating stranded capacity.
Commissioning is nearing completion on the first phase of the company’s 300,000 square foot, 30 megawatt Plano, Texas data center, which is scheduled to open in November. In addition, construction has begun on a massive 550,000 square foot, 65 megawatt data center in Phoenix, Arizona. Aligned Data Centers, with backing from its financial partner BlueMountain Capital, has begun site selection in four other top-tier data center markets including California, Illinois, Virginia, and New Jersey in the near-future.
"We’re thrilled to have recruited this caliber of talent to help bring our pay-for-use model to the market," said Jakob Carnemark, CEO of Aligned Data Centers. "Our clients will benefit from the depth and breadth of experience our team brings to the table."
The new hires include:
In addition, Aligned Data Centers has attracted industry veterans from Digital Realty Trust, IO, Skanska, and CBRE to fill in its ranks in operations, engineering, marketing and sales.
"We are assembling a team of some of brightest people from inside and outside the industry. They have worked with some of the world’s most respected and innovative organizations including Google, Microsoft, HP, the U.S. Navy, and Yahoo", says Carnemark. "We are well positioned to help our clients navigate the changing data center landscape and the disruption being caused by the cloud and other new technologies. Our goal is to remove the limits and cost drain associated with the current data center approach so they focus on driving their businesses forward."
