Its strategic focus is to deliver selective sourcing alternatives to enterprise customers looking to extend their IT capabilities without abdicating control.

The Situation

RagingWire Enterprise Solutions was founded in May 2000 to be an enterprise-class Managed Services Provider (eMSP) that could provide and support colocated data center services for Fortune 1000 customers. As a result, RagingWire needed a highly available, secure, and scalable Class “A+” Tier-IV data center design to deliver colocation and managed service solutions to enterprise customers.


  • Engineered a data center power and cooling architecture to scale to beyond 200 watts per square foot power density.
  • Achieved outstanding performance of dual redundant power and cooling infrastructure in striving to deliver 100 percent uptime and 99.999 percent availability.
  • Capitalized on real-time monitoring of 7,400 branch circuits to plan and predict for abnormalities.
“You can’t build a data center the way we have with anything as an afterthought. It has to be engineered for availability, security, and performance for the future from the beginning.”
