Stack Infrastructure breaks ground on Hillsboro campus
Stack Infrastructure has broken ground on the construction of its new POR03 campus in Hillsboro, Oregon.
The new 28-acre campus will include an initial 24MW building due to be ready Q3 of 2021 with a total campus capacity of 84MW to support future expansion plans.
The facility is located less than a quarter-mile from a new 34.5kV substation, with power supplied by Portland General Electric, and is located on the Wave Business Hillsboro Data Center Ring, which offers high-count fibre connectivity and access to transpacific subsea cables.
Stack currently operates two other facilities in the region with a total of 28.8MW, along with a neighbouring build-to-suit campus with 12MW of potential capacity. At full build-out, Stack’s capacity in Hillsboro will total over 125MW.
“Hillsboro continues to be an enduring, popular destination for clients, with its access to plentiful power, low-cost carbon-free supply options like wind, solar and hydro, and excellent connectivity to the major West Coast availability zones and international markets,” said Matt VanderZanden (pictured), chief strategy officer at Stack.
“Cloud and content providers and enterprises want to be there, and therefore, we want to be there. It’s our mission to support these companies with flexibility and scale as they innovate and grow.”
This new campus expansion in Oregon follows the company’s latest growth financing raise. Supported by strong financial backing and client demand, Stack is enabling client growth in key regions throughout the US.
In related news, Stack entered into an agreement with InnerCity FiberNet (ICFN) to bring a number of its services into two of its Dallas-Fort Worth data centre facilities.
The collaboration between the two specially makes for the availability of ICFN’s metro select dark fibre, Ethernet, wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM), and dedicated Internet, to Stack’s clients.
