From an advanced, standardized supply chain methodology that streamlines delivery, to our patented Delta³ cooling technology that enables scalability and efficiency without the added CapEx, VSAS™ is the foundation of Aligned’s data center platform.
VSAS Data Center Platform
Aligned’s data center platform and operations are underpinned by four pillars that we refer to as VSAS™ — Velocity, Scalability, Adaptability, and Sustainability.
Speed matters. Demand for data center space is on the rise, and today’s deployments must achieve speed-to-market and scale with minimal exposure to risk factors, which can lead to inflated capital and operational expenses. Leveraging a standardized supply chain methodology, modular systems and loyal, long-term partners, Aligned’s data center builds can be delivered in unprecedented timeframes. Our standardized supply chain provides customers with a simple and repeatable model for expansion in new or existing markets. At any given point in time, Aligned vendors hold an approximately 50 MW, auto-replenished pool of available inventory, ready for immediate deployment and comprised of prefabricated, factory-built and tested power and cooling equipment.
Scale in place, dynamically. Aligned’s award-winning, patented cooling technology, Delta3™ allows customers to deploy infrastructure where and when they need it, and as their requirements change. With Delta³, workload densities can scale in place without having to reconfigure existing infrastructure, disperse equipment, or require large-scale investments to augment floors for increasing heat loads. Customers can initiate at one density profile and scale up to 50 kW per rack without disruption, all while maintaining industry-leading power usage effectiveness (PUE).
Future-proofing, second to none. Unpredictable usage and growth models are table stakes, requiring a new breed of adaptive infrastructure that enables customers to deploy quickly and ExpandOnDemand™, and reconfigure seamlessly if necessary, as their business grows. This allows customers to truly future-proof their IT environments. Intelligent infrastructure, combined with incrementally scalable technology and a nimble, standardized supply chain allow us to dynamically meet customer needs.
Go green. Aligned was founded on the premise of solving the world’s toughest challenges associated with data center infrastructure, energy consumption and water usage. Our platform is focused on helping companies deliver greater business value with less costly energy and infrastructure resources. Our data center offering requires less power, significantly reducing tenant total cost of ownership (TCO), and uses less water with the ability to run waterless as required.
