RagingWire claims the new facility makes it the owner of the largest datacentre in California

RagingWire Data Centers, a subsidiary of Japanese telecoms giant NTT Com has cut the ribbon on its latest datacentre, known as California Sacramento 3 or CA3.

RagingWire is among a number of incumbents (Alibaba, Time Warner, Equinix) to bolster their cloud presence in the state as of late.

The 180,000 square foot facility packs 14 megawatts of power and 70,000 square feet of server space. It is located and fully integrated with the company’s 500,000 square foot datacentre campus in Sacramento, which includes two other datacentres (CA1 and CA2); the company said when combined the campus creates the largest datacentre in the state of California (680,000 square feet).

“Today is a big day for RagingWire, our customers, and our partners,” said George Macricostas, founder, chairman, and chief executive of RagingWire Data Centers. “The CA3 data center is the next step in RagingWire’s U.S. expansion and a new component for the global data center portfolio of NTT Communications. CA3 is truly a world-class datcentre.”

The move marks another big expansion for NTT Com, which together with its subsidiaries operates over 130 datacentres globally. The company said the latest facility is aimed at companies operating in the Bay Area and Silicon Valley.

“RagingWire has been a strategic addition to the NTT Communications family of companies. We look forward to working with you to deliver information and communications technology solutions worldwidem,” said Akira Arima, chief executive of NTT Communications.
