RagingWire Enterprise Solutions, Inc. (RES) has opened a 46,000 square foot expansion of its high-density data center facility in Sacramento, California. This is the third phase of expansion for RagingWire's 200,000 square foot facility, which features a 4-foot raised floor and 30-foot ceilings. The new space is engineered to support 200 watts per square foot throughout the equipment area, and more than 1,000 watts per square foot in some areas. The company has also added 10 Gigabit connectivity to support growing client demand for high-bandwidth applications.
"As businesses continue to pack greater processing power into the same footprint, we have seen an enormous demand for highly available environments that are capable of supporting high-density servers and increasing heat loads," said George Macricostas, CEO and Vice Chairman.
The new expansion space is designed to accommodate "aggressive IT trends toward server consolidation, virtualization and multi-core architectures which drive compute and power density even higher," said Yatish Mishra, President and CTO of RagingWire. "RagingWire's infrastructure allows clients to increase computing capacity, add more equipment in less space, efficiently use rack space, and reduce the performance deterioration and downtime risks associated with heat overloads and insufficient cooling capacities."
RagingWire Enterprise Solutions provides managed services and world-class IT solutions including software as a service (SaaS) and high-density hosting.
