IT solutions provider Datto has picked Aligned Energy’s Salt Lake Metro data centre for its ongoing expansion.

Datto offers business continuity and disaster recovery, networking, business management, and file backup and sync solutions that help small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to compete in vertical markets across the globe.

“Datto protects data for businesses around the world, and our recent growth has been driven by the ongoing surge of small business IT,” said William Speirs, Ph.D., Vice President of Infrastructure Engineering Technology at Datto.

“We were looking for a partner we could grow with, and Aligned’s adaptable data centre platform provides the flexibility to accommodate the scale and densification of our environment.

“Aligned’s rapid deployment model enabled a seamless migration into their facility, eliminating risk and minimising any impact on our business operations.”

The company’s West Jordan data centre is strategically located to provide connectivity infrastructure and access to a wide range of carriers and telecommunications providers.

The company added that Aligned’s patented data centre cooling technology allows Datto to initiate at one density profile and scale up as needed to 50 kW per rack within the same footprint, while utilising up to 80% less energy and 85% less water.

“Leveraging our adaptive data centre platform and dynamic infrastructure, Datto now has the ability to easily scale as its business continues to expand,” said Andrew Schaap, CEO of Aligned Energy.

“There are budgetary risks and scheduling challenges associated with a major data centre migration.

“However, thanks to our capital structure, operational processes and staff, and best-in-class partners, we were able to provide Datto with a comfort level of stability and support, as well as an adaptive data centre environment ready for service in just three months.”
