NTT Com's RagingWire Plans Massive Ashburn Data Center Expansion

RagingWire Data Centers, a subsidiary of NTT Communications (NTT Com), will invest $160 million to build the new Ashburn VA3 Data Center in the heart of the famed ‘Data Center Alley’ in Ashburn, Virginia.

The VA3 Data Center with 245,000 square feet of space and 16 megawatts of power, is scheduled to be available by the end of 2017. The company said this "phase one" expansion could be further extended.  The campus could accommodate six buildings on the 76.5 acre site in Ashburn.


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 over a half million square feet of space and 44.4 megawatts of power, and includes on-site security officers and multi-layered security systems, highly efficient cooling and carrier-neutral telecommunications, and direct connectivity to top cloud providers and other data centers in Data Center Alley. On a wider scale, VA3 will grow RagingWire’s existing 1.2-million-square-foot U.S data center platform, which includes CA1, CA2, and CA3 in Northern California and TX1 in Dallas, Texas, as well as NTT Com’s global data center services platform operated under the Nexcenter TM brand.

“The Ashburn VA3 Data Center raises the bar for data center colocation in the largest data center market in the world,” said George Macricostas, Chairman, CEO and founder of RagingWire Data Centers. “VA3 offers mission-critical performance, flexible configurations for hyperscale cloud and enterprise deployments, exceptional customer amenities and global integration with NTT Com’s growing portfolio of over 140 data centers around the world.”

“NTT Communications is proud to be investing in RagingWire’s VA3 Data Center and Ashburn Data Center Campus,” said Tetsuya Shoji, President and CEO of NTT Communications. “Virginia is the top data center market in the world and a strategic location for NTT Com as we expand our data center capacity. RagingWire’s VA3 Data Center will be a key platform for the NTT family of companies to deliver global information and communications (ICT) solutions that enable our customers to digitalize their businesses.”
