GLP has launched a new global data center business, Ada Infrastructure.
GLP said, serving the digital infrastructure needs of hyperscale companies and large global enterprises, Ada Infrastructure launches with 850 megawatts (MW) of secured IT capacity across Japan, the UK and Brazil, and nearly 1.5 gigawatts (GW) of total future capacity.
Jennifer Weitzel, a former Microsoft executive, will lead Ada Infrastructure as president. Over the past year, she has assembled a team of experts from across the global hyperscale and data center operators.
“Like our namesake, Ada Lovelace, considered the world’s first computer programmer, we believe in technology’s potential to benefit society, an idea she described as ‘poetical science’,” said Weitzel. “In this spirit, we are committed to meeting the ever-growing capacity needs of the world’s most transformative companies, while making a positive impact on communities and the planet. We are building a company that customers want to work with and employees want to work for, not just now, but for years to come. This also means investing in the communities in which we work and live – creating and fostering equitable access to economic and social opportunities.”
“Data centers play a critical role in making the modern world run more efficiently and are where some of the world’s biggest challenges are being solved,” said Ming Mei, co-founder and CEO of GLP. “Scientific discoveries, medical advancements, communication systems, new and more accessible financial services, global commerce, and now the AI revolution are all made possible within data centers. With Ada, we are proud to be a part of the future of digital infrastructure while also serving our communities and planet.”
