RagingWire confirms 80MW Texas datacentre build

NTT.com subsidiary RagingWire Data Centers, has confirmed that it has purchased 42 acres of land in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and plans to build a one million sq ft, 80 megawatt datacentre campus on the site, news which first emerged last month.

Construction will begin immediately and the leasing of wholesale build-to-suit vaults, custom datacentre buildings, and retail colocation cages and racks is expected to commence by September 2016.

“We are thrilled to be entering the Dallas datacentre market, one of the top markets in the United States,” said George Macricostas, Chairman and CEO of RagingWire Data Centers. “Our sincere thanks go to the great state of Texas and the city of Garland for their tremendous support. Together we will expand and enhance the datacentre sector in the region.”The 42-acre parcel of land is located in Garland, Texas, near other primary datacentre locations in North Texas including Richardson, Plano, and Carrollton.

RagingWire has nearly one million sq ft of datacentre space providing 80 megawatts of critical IT power across its campuses in Northern California and Ashburn, Virginia.

“We did a thorough evaluation and are confident that Garland, Texas is the best place for RagingWire to open its new data center in the Dallas-Fort Worth datacentre market,” said Doug Adams, Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer of RagingWire. “With our site across the street from Richardson and just four miles from the Digital Realty campus, we are an ideal location for businesses requiring a datacentre footprint in the middle of the United States.”
