STACK Infrastructure: Expanding data centre AI capabilities

STACK Infrastructure enhances its data centres with the power of AI, highlighting the need to expand to meet global demand and high-density workloads

STACK Infrastructure is expanding its artificial intelligence-ready (AI-ready) data centre capabilities to support machine learning and related high-density workloads.

The company is keen to demonstrate itself as prepared for the future of data centres. Leveraging its established AI-ready capabilities built in its customisable design, STACK Infrastructure is aiming to reinforce its history of supporting high-density workloads for the world’s leading technology providers.

Expanding to meet AI demand is something that the data centre industry is currently looking at. STACK Infrastructure’s capabilities ensure that it is designed to support the next generation of data centres and AI workload requirements moving forward.

Ensuring that data centres are AI-ready in 2024

With such incredible growth, STACK Infrastructure’s cutting-edge data centre solutions and extensive portfolio of powered land holdings have become even more crucial to today’s technology companies. These are purposefully crafted to meet escalating client demands.

Over the last two years, the company has grown exponentially as it works to deliver safe and sustainable hyperscale data centres to its clients. In November 2023, it secured US$290m in debt financing to build more data centres.

In addition, the company expanded further into the APAC region in August 2023 with its first data centre facility in Melbourne, Australia. Aiming to pair local knowledge with global reach, STACK Infrastructure is continuing to grow worldwide to better meet the needs of its hyperscale and enterprise clients - particularly when it comes to developing AI.

In a rapidly evolving landscape of technology, the demand for AI is one of the most prevalent transformations currently impacting the data centre sector. As businesses seek to meet rising demand, they are continually considering how to accommodate high-density workloads that are reaching unprecedented levels.

The company also runs all of its facilities on renewable energy.

Rolling out cooling situations to cope with AI workloads

Like many others throughout 2023, STACK Infrastructure is also utilising cooling solutions for high-density AI workloads. It is demonstrating this via its closed-loop water cooling systems, which are able to offer flexibility to meet a wide range of cooling requirements. These include customisable solutions that can support up to 30kW per rack.

The company already boasts a large portfolio of data centres in operation. These are designed on cost-efficient models, combined with cooling system expertise to allow greater deployment. In an age of AI, these capabilities highlight STACK Infrastructure’s ability to sustain data centre growth.

Plenty of data centre companies and operators have also introduced liquid cooling solutions into their portfolio. These include companies like Vertiv, LiquidStack and Modine, to name a few. With liquid cooling expected to remain a significant trend in 2024, it is interesting to consider how AI will continue to influence the decision for businesses to adopt cooling solutions.

With 2.5+GW built or under development and an additional 4.0+GW of planned and potential development, STACK Infrastructure strategically supports the hyperscale requirements and ground-breaking initiatives of leading global technology firms through the development of AI-Ready campus developments.

“STACK was built for the world’s largest innovators, and from the beginning, we have prioritised the long-term scalability of our clients with a flexible data centre design,” said Matt VanderZanden, Chief Operating Officer of STACK Americas.

“As an AI-Ready digital infrastructure company with a proven track record of high-density deployments, STACK is building upon this foundation to continually address evolving client needs.”
