The Dallas TX1 Data Center, combined with data centers in Ashburn, Virginia and Sacramento, California, expands RagingWire’s data center capacity to 1.5 million square feet and 113 MW of power. In Ashburn, the world’s top data center market, the new VA3 Data Center which is under construction will join the VA1 and VA2 data centers for a total footprint of over 500,000 square feet of space and 44 MW of power. In Sacramento, an ideal Northern California data center location outside the earthquake zone of the Bay Area and Silicon Valley, RagingWire has 680,000 square feet of data center space and 53 MW of power with a compelling total cost of ownership (TCO) based on low-cost power provided by the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD).

NTT Communications and RagingWire to Invest $160 Million in New Ashburn VA3 Data Center in the Heart of Data Center Alley

RagingWire Data Centers and NTT Communications announced that they are investing $160 million to build the new Ashburn VA3 Data Center in the heart of the famed ‘Data Center Alley’ in Ashburn, Virginia, the top data center market in the world. The Ashburn VA3 Data Center represents phase one of RagingWire’s massive Ashburn Data Center Campus development which can accommodate six buildings on the 76.5 acre site in Ashburn. The VA3 Data Center with 245,000 square feet of space and 16 megawatts of power, is scheduled to be available by the end of 2017. The VA3 Data Center joins RagingWire’s VA1 and VA2 data centers, which also are in Ashburn. The combination of VA1, VA2 and VA3 creates a data center footprint of over a half million square feet of space and 44.4 megawatts of power, and includes on-site security officers and multi-layered security systems, highly efficient cooling and carrier-neutral telecommunications, and direct connectivity to top cloud providers and other data centers in Data Center Alley. On a wider scale, VA3 will grow RagingWire’s existing 1.2-million-square-foot U.S data center platform, which includes CA1, CA2, and CA3 in Northern California and TX1 in Dallas, Texas, as well as NTT Com’s global data center services platform operated under the Nexcenter TM brand. The investment in the VA3 Data Center by RagingWire and NTT Communications is significant for the Virginia economy, not only for the jobs it creates, but also because it supports the exemption from the Virginia Sales and Use Tax on qualified equipment purchases by RagingWire and its customers. This exemption has resulted in millions of dollars of savings for RagingWire customers and encouraged companies to establish or expand their IT and business operations in Virginia.
