Aligned has announced improvements to Delta3, the company’s patented data centre cooling technology.

Delta3 now offers 25% greater cooling capacity, allowing for higher densities and more flexible customer IT loads, the company said.

“Aligned has always been laser-focused on solving our customers’ capacity management challenges through continuous improvements and innovation in adaptive data centre design, including our efficient cooling and our advanced, standardized supply chain methodology that accelerates and streamlines delivery,” added Andrew Schaap, CEO of Aligned.

“The technological improvements we’ve made on our patented Delta3 cooling system are game-changers, enabling even greater vertical densification and more efficient use of space and infrastructure to support our customers’ on-demand capacity growth.”

Aligned’s Delta3 cooling technology utilises up to 80% less energy and 85% less water to improve power usage effectiveness (PUE), reduce environmental impact and lower the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for customers.

The company revealed that its Delta3 cooling systems allow customers to Expand on Demand, incrementally scaling in place up to 50 kW per rack without stranding capacity, which also improves sustainability.

Providing a hyperscalable environment, Aligned’s Delta3 cooling system is set to deliver efficiency at any load and in any climate, regardless of location to support companies’ stewardship goals.

Aligned’s proprietary cooling technology has originated more than 50 issued patents and over 500 patent claims, according to the company.

The continuous innovation of its Delta3 cooling technology reflects Aligned’s commitment to sustainable practices and principles across its organisation.

Recently, Aligned completed a $1 billion senior secured credit facility that is the first U.S. data centre sustainability-linked financing.

The company’s sustainability-linked financing is tied to the its core environmental, social and governance (ESG) objectives, and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), including a commitment to match 100% of Aligned’s annual energy consumption to zero-carbon renewable energy by 2024.
