RangingWire held its Grand Opening event in Garland, Texas Tuesday evening, celebrating the data center company’s newest addition and first location in Texas.
The 42-acre campus, named “TX1,” is expected to expand to 1 million square feet of data center space and 80 Megawatts of power upon its completion.
“North Texas ranks third in the world for internet traffic,” said RagingWire CEO Doug Adams. “It’s that internet economy that drives innovation, promotes entrepreneurship and attracts Fortune 1000 companies. We want to partner with you and take North Texas to the next level.”
JLL Executive Chairman and football legend Roger Staubach was on hand and took part in the grand opening festivities. JLL’s Data Center Solutions team arranged the land purchase for the new facility.
“It’s been a real privilege for us to be part of the RagingWire family and NTT, and help on the real estate needs, especially on this great project,” said Staubach. “It’s a privilege for me to be here and celebrate a great company coming to the great state of Texas.”
According to 451 Research, one of the top analyst firms covering the data center sector, Dallas-Fort Worth is already the fourth-largest data center market in the country. JLL research reported DFW was second in the US in data center absorption in 2015.
“This data center will have a huge impact in North Texas,” said Bo Bond, JLL Data Center Solutions Managing Director. “Data center space is being leased to everyone from large corporate users to private individuals, driving continued growth, innovation and data demand in North Texas. We’re thrilled to play a role in bringing RagingWire to Dallas-Fort Worth.”
