Both Hillsboro and Chicago are the first data centers to open at the two new campus locations with plans to expand the Chicago campus to 72MW and the Hillsboro campus to 126MW.

Not only will we continue to expand both the Hillsboro and Chicago campuses, but we’re also looking forward to our new Silicon Valley campus, expansion in Ashburn, as well as breaking ground in Phoenix. These efforts underline our commitment to put our clients at the center and bring data center services to key data center markets across the Americas.”
The 36 MW Hillsboro data center is situated on a 47-acre campus at the heart of the Pacific Northwest technology hub and offers organizations the ability to meet sustainability goals with optional carbon-neutral IT and 100% renewable energy options.
