Like most businesses looking for the best spot to build a new facility, RagingWire wanted its new Dallas data center location to hit the mark on a list of prime considerations.

“Dallas is the No. 4 city globally for internet traffic, also there’s a large pool of very skilled labor, inexpensive and reliable power, and lots of fiber,” RagingWire Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Joe Goldsmith said. “Those are the magic ingredients for a great data center market.”

The 42-acre campus in Garland has space for five interconnected buildings, 1.5 million square feet of space, and a total of 80 megawatts of capacity with room to expand that capacity, if needed. The campus’ first building is the RagingWire Dallas TX1 Data Center, a wholesale private vault and retail colocation facility with 16 megawatts of critical IT power in 230,000 square feet of space that launched last spring.

TX1 was built with RagingWire’s target customers in mind, including enterprise, cloud, large-scale deployments, and customers expecting high-growth in coming years. It also fits into the tech company’s strategy of providing data centers in the top U.S. data center markets.

The RagingWire data center campus in Garland joins three developments in Ashburn, Virginia, and three facilities in Sacramento, California. The company’s footprint extends globally through the portfolio of parent company NTT, which has 140 data centers in 20 countries worldwide.
