BELLEVUE, WA — September 20, 2023 — GLP Pte Ltd. (“GLP”) today announced the launch of Ada Infrastructure, a new global data center business founded on a commitment to being a positive force for technology, people, and the planet. 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, leads Ada Infrastructure as president. Over the past year, she has assembled an unrivaled team of experts from across the industry to address the rising demand for hyperscale data centers in strategic locations globally. As Ada Infrastructure, this team will support the rapid growth of cloud services and artificial intelligence – safely, securely, and sustainably.
“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.”
The Ada Infrastructure team is dedicated to ensuring data center customers have capacity where and when they need it. With access to GLP’s global presence and regional expertise, Ada Infrastructure can quickly identify and secure sites in key high demand markets. Ada has also developed a future-ready global design playbook, embedded with features that can accommodate evolving technologies that enhance efficiency and performance.
“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.”
