Managed IT provider RagingWire Enterprise Solutions, Inc. (RES) is planning to build a second 200,000 square foot data center in Sacramento, Calif., the company said this week. RagingWire said it is currently negotiating incentives from the county and hopes to break ground for the new site in early 2008. The company said the expansion was needed to meet growing demand for data center infrastructure in the Sacramento market.

“We have seen explosive growth in the demand for premier, enterprise-class data center space over the last couple of years,” said George Macricostas, CEO and Vice Chairman of RagingWire. “Weathering the dot.com downturn reinforced our lean and efficient business model. As a result we continue to expand while remaining profitable.”

The expansion will increase RagingWire’s data center floor space by more than 120,000 square feet, which would give it a total of 230,000 square feet of raised floor in Sacramento. The company has developed its existing 200,000 square foot facility in phases, including a 46,000 square foot buildout announced in August. RES also has a dedicated 69kv power substation located on-site.


“We are excited to add even more high-density floor space,” said Yatish Mishra, President and CTO of RagingWire. “Our enterprise clients have shown insatiable demand for this type of high power, high bandwidth and highly reliable facility.”

RagingWire Enterprise Solutions provides managed services and world-class IT solutions including software as a service (SaaS) and high-density hosting.
