What Analysts Are Saying

Aligned Data Centers is the first data center provider we have seen to architect itself from day one to deliver a more reliable platform. From its use of the most reliable cooling platform we have ever evaluated, to its selection of generation platforms, they are the first provider to focus on reliability centered improvements from design through operations.

Steve Fairfax, MTECHNOLOGY

Aligned is targeting one of the toughest challenges in the data center business. […] In a nutshell, Aligned hopes to bring cloudstyle pricing and hyperscale-level efficiency into the multitenant data center sector.”

Rich Miller, Data Center Frontier

We believe Aligned can find success as its pay-for-use pricing model generates considerable interest from not only cloud service providers but also fast-growing midmarket and enterprise customers that could benefit from it.
