Sacramento, California – (The Hosting News) – December 7, 2006 – Hosted managed services and information technology (IT) outsourcing solutions firm, RagingWire Enterprise Solutions, Inc. (RES), has initiated a total expansion of 89,000 square feet to its Enterprise Data Center in Sacramento, California.
With an eye toward meeting the strong market demand for high-density, Class “A” Tier IV data center floor space, RES, expects its Phase 3 build-out to be completed in Q3 of 2007.
John Hoffman, CEO of RES explained, ”Today’s Fortune 500 companies have recognized that designing and managing a top-tier data center is a core competency in itself. These companies are not interested in traveling down an intensive capital learning cycle to ‘get this right. In fact, we have had several top Silicon Valley companies move out of their recently built corporate data centers because they were not able to utilize high-density blade servers due to power and cooling restrictions inherent in their internal designs. RagingWire’s Phase 3 expansion is specifically for these customers. We want to allow our clients the ability to expand footprint and power densities at their own pace without risk.”
In addition to the data center expansion, RES has built its own onsite 69KV power substation. With power supplied from two separate grids, the substation is capable of 24 megawatts of capacity. According to Yatish Mishra, president and chief technology officer of RES, the utilization average across the entire Phase 3 data center floor is engineered to reach over 200 watts per square foot. This level of cooling was made possible by incorporating multiple 1,200-ton chillers, a 4-foot raised floor, a 32-foot ceiling, and oversized main chilled water lines.
Mr. Mishra remarked, ”New regulatory and business continuity requirements are making it difficult for companies to internally maintain the necessary storage, power and cooling capabilities needed to effectively grow business. RagingWire delivers superior infrastructure and robust, value-added IT solutions that ensure our clients meet their changing business requirements today, and in the future.”
Strategically located in seismically stable Sacramento Valley, RES’ data center is SAS 70 Type II compliant and engineered to provide “five nines” (99.999%) service availability for highly reliable and scalable power and cooling. RES offers a wide range of IT infrastructure and managed service solutions that accommodate enterprise companies seeking a secure location to host and support their mission-critical business systems.
