STACK INFRASTRUCTURE, the data center company built from the ground up to address the technology infrastructure needs of rapidly scaling enterprises and hyperscale businesses, recently announced plans for expansion in Portland, Oregon, a leading U.S. data center market. This announcement comes on the heels of STACK’s recent plans to complete a new build at its Chicago location and underpins the company’s strategy of bringing on additional capacity to support expanding client demands. Operating in Hillsboro offers both commercial and natural advantages, including a technology-friendly business environment and vital access to key international markets services by subsea cable.
The company will break ground on a significant, long-term expansion in Hillsboro, a market in which STACK has deep roots and a history of market leadership after having built its first data center there in 2012. The near-term campus will deliver more than 60MW of additional critical capacity and will bring the company’s total capacity in this expanding market to nearly 100MW.
“Portland is a key market for our clients and, consequently, for STACK,” said Matt VanderZanden, Chief Strategy Officer of STACK. “Its unique combination of attributes that are ever-growing priorities in our industry—proximity to key user bases, excellent network and electrical infrastructure, and sources of renewable energy—make it a destination of choice as enterprise, hyperscale, and cloud companies implement their growth initiatives.”
“STACK has a rich heritage in Hillsboro, where we’ve built some of our most important and enduring client relationships,” said Brian Cox, Chief Executive Officer of STACK. “We view this as a high-priority market for ongoing investment, and this is only the beginning of the presence STACK intends to build as we rapidly scale our critical capacity.”
STACK remains dedicated to serving as the data center industry leader in building and delivering flexible, critical infrastructure solutions that seamlessly meet the complex requirements of enterprise and hyperscale deployments. Currently, the company offers hyperscale campuses and build-to-suit data centers (“HYPER STACK™”), immediately available wholesale colocation and private data suites (“READY STACK™”), and powered shell options (“POWER STACK™”).
