RagingWire Data Centers announced in June that it is expanding its Sacramento infrastructure, adding an additional 180,000 square feet of operational space within a new California data center.
The new facility, known as CA3, will be fully integrated with the company’s two existing Northern California data centers and will be capable of handling 14 megawatts of critical IT power. In addition to the data center space, the new site will also offer 20,000 square feet of customer office and amenity space.
With this newest building, RagingWire brings their Sacramento campus, known as “The Rock”, to a total of 680,000 square feet. The first customers will be able to start using space in the new facility by the end of 2014.
“The largest data center in the state of California is getting bigger and better,” said Jason Weckworth, senior vice president and COO of RagingWire. “We are proud to be expanding our Sacramento data center campus with our new CA3 facility – designed and engineered for critical applications and Internet businesses.”
RagingWire is unique in the industry as they design, build and operate their own data centers. In April, the company submitted permits to be able to make more than $16 million worth of improvements to their Sacramento data center, CA2, which brought the site to nearly full capacity. The CA1 facility has been sold out for many years, increasing the need for this newest expansion.
