STACK developed its first data center here in 2012.

“STACK has a rich heritage in Hillsboro, where we’ve built some of our most important and enduring client relationships,” said Brian Cox, Chief Executive Officer of STACK. “We view this as a high-priority market for ongoing investment, and this is only the beginning of the presence STACK intends to build as we rapidly scale our critical capacity.”

STACK operates data centers in six U.S. markets: Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois; Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas; Northern Virginia; Portland, Oregon; and Silicon Valley.
