SACRAMENTO, California
February 24, 2010

RagingWire Enterprise Solutions, Inc., is pleased to announce that Bay Alarm Company has chosen RagingWire's Enterprise Data CenterSM for their high-density colocation infrastructure. The selection of Sacramento's largest colocation provider will supply Bay Alarm a future proofed solution within RagingWire's highly available data center facility.

Bay Alarm's Vice President, Bob Mitchell explains their Sacramento data center selection, "Based upon RagingWire's carrier neutral connectivity, hardened N+2 design, and 24x7 customer service, we were convinced that RagingWire's current 220,000 sq. ft. data center would meet our infrastructure and bandwidth demands. As Bay Alarm continues to grow, we know that with the construction of their new 230,000 sq. ft. data center, RagingWire is poised to be our outsourcing partner for many years to come."

"For over 60 years Bay Alarm has been a leading name in providing peace of mind throughout California, now RagingWire is able to provide Bay Alarm with that same security for their mission critical IT infrastructure", says Doug Adams, RagingWire Vice President Sales and Marketing. "Bay Alarm, like all of our clients, requires high availability of power, cooling, and connectivity. RagingWire is able to deliver on these requirements daily. While RagingWire's Sacramento data center location is just a quick drive from the Silicon Valley, the data center is securely outside the dangerous Bay Area seismic zone. It is clear to see how availability, security, and the RagingWire facility are at the heart of Bay Alarm's choice."

RagingWire's N+2 design is its core strength. This advanced data center design allows for concurrent maintainability and extreme fault tolerance. Bob Quinn, RagingWire's Vice President of Operations explains, "The unique N+2 design enables RagingWire to achieve one of the most aggressive maintenance regimes in the colocation industry. Understandably, these efforts protect the critical equipment from failures, but more importantly protect our clients businesses. As a clear example, we are able to take any equipment off line for maintenance, and then have another component fail, all of this during a utility interruption, and still keep our customers protected and online. Our design philosophy applies across the data center's entire power, cooling, and connectivity systems."
