When we entered the Dallas market with the opening of our Dallas TX1 Data Center in 2017, RagingWire empowered its customers with a way to gain a competitive advantage through a modern, mission-critical data center with seamless global connectivity.
That kind of forward-looking, customer-focused thinking has long been a part of the rich heritage of innovation that has emerged from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, as shown in these examples:
- Invention – In 1958, engineers at Texas Instruments invented the integrated circuit, thus laying the groundwork for the entire field of modern microelectronics. RagingWire evoked that pioneering high-tech spirit by becoming one of the very first colocation data centers when we opened our first facility back in 2001.
- Modernization – Back in 1950, the historic Adolphus Hotel in downtown Dallas was the first hotel in the world to provide central air conditioning. Cool air technology is continuing to evolve at RagingWire’s Dallas TX1 Data Center, where we use one of the largest water-free mechanical cooling systems in the U.S.
- Forward-Thinking – In the mid-1960s, the Dallas Cowboys became the first NFL team to use a computer to analyze college prospects. The evolution of artificial intelligence is continuing today at RagingWire’s Dallas TX1 Data Center, where companies like Citadel Analytics are prospering by running applications on RagingWire’s platform.
- Scale – At 27 square miles, the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is larger than the island of Manhattan. RagingWire has a vision for “going large” too, with our 42-acre data center campus in Dallas that can scale up to accommodate five interconnected buildings with 144MW of critical load.
- Customization – The upscale Highland Park Village in Dallas became the first self-contained shopping center in the U.S. when it opened in 1931. By offering fully customizable space within our 230,000-square foot Dallas TX1 Data Center, RagingWire offers a self-contained shopping center for data center customers.
- Convenience – Dallas brought the world its first convenience store chain when the Southland Ice Company, which became 7-Eleven, started selling groceries in addition to ice back in 1927. Customer comfort and convenience is emphasized at RagingWire’s Dallas TX1 Data Center as well, through expert deployment and migration specialists, popular amenities, and creative contract terms.
- Security – Dr Pepper was invented in Waco, Texas, but the security of its future is trusted to Dallas. Allegedly the soft drink’s recipe is kept as two halves in safe deposit boxes in two separate Dallas banks. RagingWire keeps an even more vigilant watch over our customers’ data at the Dallas TX1 Data Center, with physical security that includes anti-climb fencing, anti-ram barrier arms, mantraps, biometric ID readers, high-def cameras, in-house trained security officers, and several other extremely effective layers of security.
- Style – The legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed several Dallas buildings, including the Dallas Theater Center’s Kalita Humphreys Theater. RagingWire brought data center architecture to a new level with the Dallas TX1 Data Center, which was selected as one of the “World’s Most Beautiful Data Centers” by DataCenter Dynamics.
