RagingWire Data Centers, an NTT Communications group company with data center infrastructure in Northern California and Ashburn, Virginia, has purchased 42 acres of land in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and plans to build a one million square foot, 80 megawatt data center campus on the site. Construction will begin immediately.
The 42-acre parcel of land is located in Garland, Texas, near other primary data center locations in North Texas including Richardson, Plano, and Carrollton.
Leasing of wholesale build-to-suit vaults, custom data center buildings, and retail colocation cages and racks is expected to commence by September 2016.
The new RagingWire data center campus is located in the heart of the telecommunications hub at the intersections of Campbell Road, Telecom Road, and Lookout Drive. The site would be easily accessible from both the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and the Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL), yet outside their flight paths.
“We are thrilled to be entering the Dallas data center market, one of the top markets in the United States,” said George Macricostas, Chairman and CEO of RagingWire Data Centers. “Our sincere thanks go to the great state of Texas and the city of Garland for their tremendous support. Together we will expand and enhance the data center sector in the region.”
RagingWire became part of the NTT Communications family of companies in 2014. The new data center campus in Garland, Texas would enable RagingWire to deliver seamless colocation solutions across the United States, and as part of NTT Communications group’s 12 data centers in the U.S. and 140 data centers around the world under the “Nexcenter” brand.
