Stack Infrastructure has moved into New Albany, Ohio, market after acquiring a purpose-built, Tier III data centre campus.

The data centre company said that the campus, which offers 17 acres for future data centre development, is positioned within the Golden Triangle, a geographic area linking Northern Virginia, Northern New Jersey, and Chicago, where the majority of data transmission in the US occurs, resulting in robust fibre-optic and electrical infrastructure.

“We’re very excited to expand our footprint into this strategic market as it gains momentum in the data centre world,” said Brian Cox, chief executive officer of Stack.

“A location of choice for many data centre, cloud, and enterprise entities, New Albany and the Golden Triangle offer a highly valuable range of benefits for Stack’s current and future clients. As we have considered expansion options, this market has remained a priority due to its unique combination of reliable power, robust data fibre networks, proximity to more than half of the US population and the resulting lower latency.”

New Albany and the surrounding area represent a premier emerging market for cloud and enterprise data centres based on their competitive power costs, advantageous tax climate, skilled labour pool, and low risk of natural disasters.

By offering a presence in this strategic region, which is home to 15 Fortune 100 companies, Stack reinforces its dedication to providing flexibility and scale to its clients in key markets.

This announcement is part of Stack’s corporate strategy of building and delivering critical infrastructure and additional capacity to support the growth trajectories of its clients.

In June, the company announced that it had plans to significantly expand its Chicago data centre campus.
