RagingWire to build $160 million data center in Ashburn
Reno, Nev.-based RagingWire Data Centers and its parent company, NTT Communications, plan to spend $160 million in building a 245,000-square- foot data center in Ashburn.
The Ashburn VA3 Data Center represents phase one of the development of RagingWire’s Ashburn Data Center Campus, a 76.5 acre site that can accommodate six buildings.
The VA3 Data Center, with 16 megawatts of power, is scheduled to be available by the end of next year.
The new data center was announced at the 2016 Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure, and Operations Management Conference being held in Las Vegas.
The VA3 Data Center joins RagingWire’s VA1 and VA2 data centers, which also are in Ashburn. The combination of VA1, VA2 and VA3 creates a data center footprint of more than a half million square feet of space and 44.4 megawatts of power.
RagingWire also has data centers in California and Texas as well as NTT Com’s global data center services platform operated under the Nexcenter brand.
