Mubadala Invests in Aligned Data Centers

Mubadala Investment Company, the Abu Dhabi sovereign investor, has invested in Aligned Data Centers, a pan-America data center company headquartered in the United States. The investment gives Mubadala a minority partner stake alongside majority partners managed by Macquarie Asset Management.

Aligned offers scale data centers (colocation) and build-to-scale (build-to-suit) solutions to support global hyperscale and enterprise customers, helping to meet the demand for sustainable and scalable infrastructure. Aligned’s footprint will span more than 2.5 GW of capacity across more than 40 data centers at full buildout.

While most of the group’s operations remain in North America, Aligned has expanded into Latin America with its acquisition of LatAm data center provider, ODATA. This positions Aligned among the largest private data center operators in the Americas. The group’s LatAm operations include data centers in Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico.

The Aligned investment builds on Mubadala’s growing digital infrastructure presence in the United States. In June, Mubadala committed to investing $500 million in Brightspeed, a U.S.-based broadband and telecommunications services company, which aims to deliver fiber services that can reach up to 3 million homes and businesses over the next five years.
