FREMONT, CA: Yondr Group, a global leader, developer, owner-operator, and service provider of hyperscale data centers, announced a major expansion plan to deliver data center infrastructures all across United States, Canada, Central, and South America.

According to a survey by Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), the data center building pipeline in the United States reached near-record levels in 2020, with over 611.3MW under construction. The considerable investment in data center projects will complement Yondr Group’s existing worldwide data center network, underscoring the growing momentum in the Americas to fulfill cloud and edge computing demands.

Eanna Murphy has been named Senior Vice President of Operations for the Americas at Yondr Group. Eanna will oversee the acquisition, development, and management of digital infrastructure assets in the Americas, guaranteeing the delivery of solutions that allow the most forward-thinking clients to thrive without limitations. Before joining Yondr Group, Eanna served on the Google Data Center Delivery and Execution Leadership Team, where he managed the construction of some of the world’s largest data centers.

“The America’s represent a significant opportunity for Yondr Group,” said Dave Newitt, CEO, and Founder, Yondr Group. “Already, the USAs data center capacity alone is more than twice that of Europe. And its continuing to grow, with a predicted 11GW of capacity in place by 2025. With Eanna’s market leadership and Yondr Groups unrivalled ability to build cost-effective, secure and scalable data centers, faster than anyone else, were bringing greater flexibility and sustainability to our clients in the Americas.”

Efficient, Inclusive, and Long-Term

Yondr Group’s core value is speed. The company has streamlined the whole data center development model, from investment to operations, to become the world’s quickest full-scale data center service provider. All while maintaining the greatest levels of health and safety. Furthermore, Yondr Group said that, as of January 2021, all of its worldwide data centers would be carbon neutral at the time of handover to its clients.

Diversity: ATop Concern for the Company

Yondr Group is also devoted to diversity and inclusion to increase representation for all under-represented communities around the world. Not only has the company been committed to gender parity since the beginning of America’s business, but it also spends twice as much on diverse suppliers as the industry average. Yondr Group is also committed to making a determined effort to address the decreasing talent pool in the data center business by broadening the recruitment net through cross-skilling as part of its Americas development goals.

Yondr Group will be able to provide the proper expertise to the next generation of data center experts, allowing them to handle the expanding demands of operating and maintaining vast digital infrastructures. Yondr Group’s announcement is part of a worldwide scaling strategy that would see data centers delivered across five continents by 2024.
