Global investment firm GLP has a new global data centre business with 850MW of secured capacity across Japan, the UK and Brazil.

Ada Infrastructure, the new business, is led by former Microsoft executive Jennifer Weitzel and has around 1.5GW of total future capacity.

Ada Infrastructure is expected to tap into GLP’s ”global presence and regional expertise to help identify and secure sites in key high-demand markets”.

Ming Mei, co-founder and CEO of GLP, said: “Data centres 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.

“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 centres.”

“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,” Weitzel said.
